Adele, 30, earned millions from her world tour, which finished in the summer of 2017,  and that same year she pocketed £9 million from record sales.

She had an estimated £132 million in last year’s published rankings.

The top 10 also sees Little Mix move from tenth to sixth place this year with £48 million, partly thanks to concerts and endorsements, from dry shampoo to fashion dolls.
