The chairman is Paul Smith. Rob Davis (otherwise known as Jasper Carrott) owned a share in the company.
In 2006, Celador offered the rights and UK programme library of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? for sale, with a view toward the eventual sale of other parts of the business. In 2004 Celador took legal action against Disney for what it claimed were unpaid profits from Disney’s screening of the programme in the US. At a trial by jury in Los Angeles in June 2010 the jury awarded Celador $269m (£177m) in damages after ruling it failed to receive a fair share of profits.
