Eton is one of the UK's most exclusive boarding schools, famous for producing politicians like former Prime Minister David Cameron and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.

Its connection to royalty is well known - with Princes Harry and William both attending the £37,602 per-year school - but Eton also has a reputation for producing some of the most successful creatives in the world.

From economic theorists to singer-songwriters, here are 13 of the most successful people you may not have realised had an Etonian education, ranked by the year they were born.
