A source told the publication: 'Harley is the most successful teenage voiceover artist in Britain right now. She is hot property and easily earns £1,000 an hour.' 

They added: 'She’s also difficult to replace as she’s mature enough to be a great actress but still has the distinctive voice families around the world know as Peppa.'

Harley spoke about her time voicing the anthropomorphic pig during an appearance on This Morning earlier this month, where she admitted that producers would read her lines for her to mimic when she first started out as a tot.

Rolling in it: Peppa Pig is worth £1.4billion and airs to audiences across the world, including the USA and Australia

She explained: 'They used to read the lines out to me and I would copy them back.

'I’ve done Peppa for 11 years now I understand the character, how she speaks and how she would do things. 

'I have to change voices…I have managed to keep it the same throughout… you have to act through it.'

As well as her fortune, Harley's parents Gill and Craig are said to be the owners of multi-million pound crane and lifting company GGR group, which has a turnover of £22million a year. 

Under the radar: Despite Peppa Pig reaching audiences all over the world, Harley admitted she's overjoyed that working as a voiceover artist means she doesn't get noticed

The family live on a farm near Tring, Hertfordshire, where Harley aptly keeps two pigs called Peppa and George.

Despite Peppa Pig being broadcast in 180 territories and in 40 different languages, Harley admitted she's overjoyed that working as a voiceover artist means she doesn't get noticed.

She told This Morning hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield: 'I don’t get recognised. I went the other weekend [to Peppa Pig world], I was on the dinosaur ride with my brother and everyone was giving me strange looks.

'Me and my brother were snorting and I was doing some lines.'   

The Peppa Pig franchise is now worth an estimated £1.4 billion.
