Fashion firm Ted Baker's shares rocketed more than 13% yesterday after reports its founder could back a buy-out.

Publicity shy Ray Kelvin quit in March after allegations - which he denied - of misconduct and subjecting staff to "forced hugging".

BIG HOLDING Ray Kelvin remains Baker's biggest investor, with a near 35% holding.

Reports say he is prepared to throw his significant stake behind a buy-out that would take the firm private but still leave the existing management team in charge.

Despite yesterday's surge, Ted Baker's share price is still down 70% since March last year.
