Harry Styles is spanking some of the £40million he has made this year on a new stadium he yearns to play in.
The One Direction star is a major investor in plans to build Britain’s biggest indoor venue — called Co-Op Live — in Manchester’s Eastlands, near Etihad Stadium.
After being named the UK’s second richest star under 30 today, Harry says he’ll happily hand out programmes when the £350million, 23,500-seater venue opens in 2023. His first job was delivering newspapers for the Co-op.
‘As long as everything’s in order by 2023, hopefully they’ll let me play there. If I haven’t messed it up,’ said the 26-year-old.
And he would be happy to be put back on the payroll by his old employer, which is working with developers on the scheme. ‘Maybe, the first show, they’ll make me deliver the papers to every seat,’ said the Watermelon Sugar singer. Desperate to get back on stage, he added: ‘Ultimately, I’m a music fan. I love going to shows, I love live music.
‘What’s going to make it different than just touring? I want it to be a room that people remember playing and look forward to playing.’
And Hazza, who has built up a £74million fortune, proved everything he touches turns to gold by dropping a teaser for the video of new single Golden last night.
In it, he flashed his tats for fans, enjoyed a dip off the Amalfi Coast and ran through the streets of the stunning Italian resort.
Ed Sheeran, 29, topped Heat’s list of the richest British entertainers aged 30 and under. He also made £40million this year, taking his worth to £210million. Rapper Stormzy, 27, grew his bank balance by £20million — taking him to 14th place.
And a new addition to the top 30 is Killing Eve star Jodie Comer, 27, who raked in £4.9million from her TV fame.

Jade: Dating Jordan is such a drag… and I love him for it!
Jade Thirlwall fell for Jordan Stephens as she likes that he gives a bit of lip… or lippy, that is.
The Little Mix siren said she and her Rizzle Kicks beau bonded over their love of drag.
Having once appeared on RuPaul’s Drag Race as a guest judge, the Sweet Melody singer told Cosmopolitan magazine: ‘It’s important for me that whoever I find relationship-wise loves drag culture.
‘When I started talking to Jordan, I discovered he did a movie where he played a drag queen and was like, “He’s perfect. A straight man who’s willing to dress in drag and loves being queer and feminine. Sign me up!”.’
No Time To Die… of thirst. Rami loved mixing it with 007 Craig
Bond villain Rami Malek was left shaken and stirred — not by one of Daniel Craig’s martinis but a Negroni cocktail instead.
The Bohemian Rhapsody star revealed Craig rustled him up the gin and Campari drink after filming ended on 007 flick No Time To Die.
‘I remember Daniel giving me a hug at that point. We were just elated,’ said the 39-year-old Oscar winner, who plays villain Safin. Speaking at yesterday’s GQ Heroes Conference, Malek added: ‘We had some Negronis. He can mix a great cocktail, Mr Craig can.’
Maya’s the author of screen love story
Normal People’s Maya O’Shea got to enjoy her own on-screen romance after Irish singer Luz snapped her up to star in a video for new track The Author.
O’Shea, who starred alongside TV lovers Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones in the hit show, shot a romance with Dating Amber’s Lola Petticrew for the musician.
She dubbed their close encounter ‘the most amazing time’, while Petticrew — who identifies as queer — also enjoyed their smooch. ‘The subject matter is something massively dear to my heart. I’m glad to be a part of giving our stories space,’ she added.
My grope gripe with Magic Mike fan
Matthew McConaughey says a member of the audience tried to grab his tackle when he starred in Magic Mike.
The romcom star, 50, got more than he bargained for while shooting the striptease flick eight years ago. ‘Somebody’s hand went a little bit far. I was like, “Whoop”. Thankfully, I snuck out of there and was as covered as I could be,’ he said.
Meanwhile, the Hollywood hunk says he likes to read bad reviews to learn. ‘Some were quite constructive,’ the Oscar winner said.

- Cher believes in life after Trump… and has recorded a Joe Biden song. Pumping her power into the US presidential race, the Believe singer, 74, brought the curtain down on a Democratic I Will Vote gig with her track, Happiness Is A Thing Called Joe.
- Kanye West has become a competitive dad — helping seven-year-old daughter North West win a parent-child dance contest. ‘We took our daughter to a school dance and there’s a competition. Her and Kanye have won it two years in a row,’ said his reality TV star wife Kim Kardashian.
