One Direction 'are UK's wealthiest boy band'


One Direction are set to be named the UK's wealthiest boy band, according to reports.

The X Factor finalists - Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson - are reported to have amassed a £5 million fortune each since they formed in 2010.

The list will reveal that the boys have rocketed into the list of music millionaires aged under 30, and their combined wealth of £25 million will make them the richest boy band in the country, reported The Sun.
