According to Forbes magazine's latest top-earning dead celebrities list Michael Jackson has earned more in the past year than any deceased star over a 12-month period.

Jackson has been at the top of the dead earners list every year since he passed away in 2009, apart from in 2012 when his great friend Elizabeth Taylor was number one.

The late actress drops to 13th place on the 2016 list.

Elvis Presley and Prince, who passed away following a drug overdose in April round out the new top five, and Bob Marley and John Lennon feature in the top 10.
