Singer Adele's wealth has tripled in the past year to £20 million after huge sales of her album, 21.

The 23-year-old has risen to the top of the Sunday Times' Rich List after 21 sold 20 million copies worldwide, reports

"Adele's been the success story of the past year by a mile. You only get an Adele once every 10 years. It's success on a enormous scale," said Steve Redmond, of the Entertainment Retailers Association.

Cheryl Cole, Leona Lewis and Katie Melua are all in second place with a fortune of £12 million for each, while Jessie J has made her debut appearance on the list with an impressive £ 5 million.
