Queen have recorded a profit of £44 million, according to their production company.

Queen Productions Limited announced the figures and revealed that the three surviving members - Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon - will each receive a £10 million dividend each.

The figures come after the band re-released remastered versions of their second five albums earlier this week. The band released the first five in March this year.

Each version features a double CD featuring a bonus EP made up of rare tracks, re-mixes and live material.

The band's late singer Freddie Mercury recently finished second in NME's poll of the Greatest Singers Of All Time behind Michael Jackson.

Jackson got an average score of 9.02 out of 10, while Mercury's was 8.39.

The poll, which took place on NME.COM saw 10 million votes being cast, 4000 Facebook comments and, initially, saw Mercury at the top spot until Jackson went to Number One.
