It's that time of year again. No, you can put your pumpkin carving kit down - we're not talking about Halloween...

It's heat's Rich List time!

If you love nothing more than discussing what's inside the wallets of the young, rich and famous then you've come to the right place.

Once again, our panel of industry experts - James Herring; co-founder of Taylor Herring PR, Lucie Cave; the lovely editor of heat, and John Noel; one of the UK's top talent managers - have analysed the stars' financial dealings to work out how much they're worth. (It's A LOT by the way.)

And don't forget to scan each page of the Rich List in this week's heat magazine using the heat extra app to bring these sickeningly rich folk to life.

Now win £1000!

Don’t say we never give you anything, because we’re about to give you the chance to win a grand. That’s enough to keep Simon Cowell in frozen yoghurt for a year!
