  UK top 20 richest teens revealed
Updated 23 February 2004, 15.48

Singer Charlotte Church got her multi-million pound fortune when she turned 18. But a newspaper list shows Britain has its share of wealthy teens.

Along with Prince Harry and Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe, the list of the UK's top 20 richest teens included a few surprises.

Top was entrepreneur Richard Branson's son Sam, who's set to inherit 1bn.

And Busted's Charlie Simpson, the only teenager in the band, also made an appearance at number 17.

His Nu Pop hijinks have made him an estimated 1.2m, the report says.

There were also a few self-made teens, like Chris Philips, who made nearly 2 million from his own web company.

18-year-old Pirates of the Caribbean star Keira Knightley also showed up on the list, at number eight, as she's apparently worth 4 million.
