The Telegraph has reported that Cinven, which has also invested in Pizza Express, Peacocks and William Hill, is interested in making a cash offer for the mother and baby retailer.

An approach has not yet been made, but the private equity company is said to be most interested in the international potential for the brand, following success in this area over the past few years, while also reviving the business in the UK.

Other groups are also said to be interested in a possible takeover, including Montagu Private Equity and CVC.

The interest comes after Mothercare posted a loss of £82 million last month.
