But it’s probably no surprise that Oprah Winfrey is top – Forbes worked out she’s worth a whopping £760m. She won’t need a pension then.

In second place on the coveted list – hardly a surprise – is author JK Rowling, who has a £507m fortune.

And in case you’re wondering why you’re not on there, it’s because your bank balance reads somewhere under £23m. Sorry.
