The show's creators have been offered the huge sum after Peppa recently overtook Thomas The Tank Engine as the UK's most popular pre-school toy.

Peppa has become very popular among kids in just seven years since she and her brother George first appeared on Channel 5 in May 2004.

The 157 five-minute episodes are now shown in more than 180 countries, bringing global fame for Peppa, George, their parents and friends Suzy Sheep, Danny Dog and Emily Elephant.

The show is so popular that a theme park called Peppa Pig World has opened in the New Forest, Hants.

"The board confirms it is considering its strategic options, which may include a sale in response to interest it has received from various parties," the Daily Star quoted Entertainment One, which owns the rights to the cartoon, as saying.
