On 1 March 2004 Richard Desmond's company Northern and Shell sold a package of 45 titles, for about £20m, to Remnant Media in order to help reshape Desmond's image as part of his strategy to bid for The Daily Telegraph.
The company's most famous title was Asian Babes magazine. Other magazines published under its Fantasy Publications brand included Readers Wives, Horny Housewives, Mega Boobs, Mothers-in-Law, Big Ones, Just 18 and 60 Plus.
