The iconic Argos catalogue will not be printed anymore, it was recently reported, and if like us you used to rip out the pages of things you wanted to buy, then we’re sure you’re also a little disappointed.

Argos will stop producing its iconic catalogue, which launched in 1973, after a whopping 48 years of printing it.

And due to the catalogue being around for as long as it was, over one billion (yes one billion) copies have been printed since its launch, and it was Europe’s most widely printed publication at the height of its popularity.

Yet, as a result of our preference of online shopping, Argos has come to the conclusion that its catalogue is not as needed as it once was.

However, the news that the buying bible is on the out did give us the chance to have a flick through the decades and see some of the names, as iconic as the catalogue, who’ve posed inside the pages.

Let’s take a look at those who’ve plugged products in past Argos catalogues…

Holly Willoughby
