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.
