The singer-songwriter is the 17th richest musician – but he’s still a long way off likes of Sir Paul McCartney.

Ed Sheeran has enjoyed plenty of notes in the past year, ­doubling his wealth to £160million.

The singer-songwriter, 28, is now the UK’s 17th richest musician, according to the latest Sunday Times Rich List 

He rises from 35th place in 2018 and overtakes Adele, 31, who is up £10million at number 22 with £150million – and still our richest female recording artist.

Sheeran is thought to have made the majority of his cash through touring.
