“I bought everything in the Argos catalogue,” says shopaholic Wendy Wilson. “And I’m £1.3m in debt!”

Wendy’s local Argos store manager is a very happy bunny!

Confessed shopaholic, Wendy Wilson, 57 and divorced, has bought every item in the Argos catalogue.

“I just can’t help it,” she said. “Everything looks so new and shiny and desirable, I know I simply must have it.”

To date she has bought over 20,000 items. As new items are added and old ones removed, her local branch manager has offered her half-price buy-back on older items.

Mrs Wilson, from Derby, has had to rent a warehouse to store all her purchases, 99.6% of which have never been opened.

“It’s just like walking through an Argos warehouse,” She says. “It gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling inside, a bit like Christmas.”

Mrs Wilson, who is currently unemployed, has run up credit card debts of almost £1.3m.

When asked how she managed to acquire so much debt she replied: “It was easy!”

Mrs Wilson’s psychiatrist said she could not divulge personal and confidential patient information but added: “This is a weird one, all right.”

The Financial Ombudsman said they do not comment on ongoing cases but added: “This is a weird one, all right.”

Mrs Wilson’ solicitor said he hoped the extensive and persuasive advertising, the ease of acquiring credit and Mrs Wilson’s mental state would be taken into account at her hearing next week.

An Argos spokesperson said: “This only goes to prove what a superbly wide range of products we have and we would like to thank Mrs Wilson for her continued custom.”
