HARRY POTTER star Daniel Radcliffe is now one of the richest teenagers in the world, despite his claims he has no need for the money.

In the list compiled by America's E! TV network, Radcliffe, following the success of the global blockbusting wizard movies, is second only to the American MARY-KATE and ASHLEY OLSEN - and is already worth a massive $13.5 million (GBP7.5 million) at just 15-years-old.

He says, "The money's in the bank because I have no real need for it - apart from buying lots of CDs."

The list also sees other British stars making the ranks of the highest earning teen-sensations, with Welsh opera singer Charlotte Church at number 3 with her $10.8 million (GBP6 million) fortune and King Arthur actress KEIRA KNIGHTLEY at No 9.
