Argos revealed its best Christmas performance for more than 10 years after making further progress in its plan to become a digital-led retailer with nearly half of sales made online.

Another strong Christmas for tablet computers and the recent launch of Microsoft’s Xbox One and Sony’s PlayStation 4 games consoles helped like-for-like sales jump 3.8 per cent in the 18 weeks to January 4. It said 46 per cent of all sales were made over the internet.
