The news came as the company held last-ditch talks with potential partners.

It had already raised £3.2 million from shareholders.

However, Zelf Hussain, of PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) said:

“It’s with real regret that we have to implement a phased closure of all UK stores.

“Our focus will be to help employees and keep the stores trading for as long as possible.

“This is a sad moment for a well-known high street name.”
