As you may or may not know, The Sunday Times Rich List was released last week, I personally always find things like this mega interesting. God knows why I find reading about people with £13 billion in the bank interesting I will never know but hey.
I always find the fashion list interesting, some things really surprise me such as the likes of brand such as Sports Direct being present half way down the list.
Topping the list rather unsurprisingly (or maybe youll find it surprising I don't know) is Galen and George Weston and family, owners of massive high street chain Primark and Selfridges at £6.7 billion. Knowing how popular Primark is and how little they pay for labour etc. makes sense that they are raking in the big bucks.
Falling short of the top spot and coming in at second is the king of the high street Sir Phillip Green. As owner of Arcadia group, Topshop/Man, Dorothy Perkins, Miss Selfridge, BHS, Evans to name a few.

Past number 2 it began to surprise me. In at 3 we have Sir David and Frederick Barclay owner of Littlewoods, worth £2.25 billion. Sports Direct comes in at number 4, yep you heard correctly!
