Violinist Vanessa-Mae Nicholson has topped the Top Ten chart of wealthiest entertainers aged under-30 who were born or live in the UK, with her fortune estimated to be at £32 million.

Published on Sunday (April 23), the list also features a surprise appearance from Jack White, who along with wife Karen Elson, came in at Seven with a collective wealth of £20 million.
