  • After 47 years, and one billion printed Argos has pulled the plug on its catalogue
  • Here are some of the celebs who graced its pages at the start of their careers
  • Famous faces include Holly Willoughby, Tess Daly and Arnold Schwarzenegger

If you’ve ever flipped through the Argos catalogue in search of home furnishings, gadgets or toys, you might have spotted some familiar faces. 

After printing its last physical edition of the much-loved catalogue this month, throwback images reveal how some of today’s best-known stars have featured in its pages over the last 47 years.

Holly Willoughby, Emma Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Tess Daly are among those who modelled clothing, underwear and exercise equipment for the Argos catalogue, which will no longer be produced in print. 

Argos pulled the plug on the biannual publication after telling employees that Covid-19 had been the final nail in the coffin.
