Additional information is taken from public records available through Companies House and other public domain sources.
"*" indicates a tied place. In other words two or more stars share the same amount of wealth.

It should be noted that the figures quoted are based on available records. It is possible that these do not include all incomes from overseas territories. Also, while some stars like Elton John are happy to list the salary paid to their company's sole employee (themselves), others are not. Therefore this can never be considered a full and fair evaluation of the wealth of the stars listed.
