- Chris Evans, the television and radio personality, is considering seeking a stock market listing for the Ginger Media Group.
It is thought the company, which owns Virgin Radio, could be valued at around £150 million, giving Evans a paper fortune of £80 million.
Aside from Virgin Radio, Ginger Media is involved in television production and internet activity. The TV production arm is responsible for such shows as TFI Friday and is currently working on turning the movie Lock Stock and Two Smoking barrels into a television show.
The company is understood to have achieved an operating profit of £15 million last year.
