Speaking to the Daily Mail newspaper, Mr Paphitis revealed he had held talks with Deloitte and PwC, administrators for the collapsed businesses. He told the national: "My interest for HMV harks from an era that thinks what a great brand. Often I have looked at things and thought is there something there?

"Also I could put a Dyas or a Ryman in some of its stores, and am also talking to the administrator of Jessops where I have identified some shops, as well as Blockbuster."

Deloitte and PwC are reportedly in talks with up to 20 individuals interested in taking on HMV, Jessops and Blockbuster.
