EHT also saw sales growth this week, +3.3%. Mobile and photography continues to perform strongly, up a huge 47.4%, with sales of GoPro's performing particularly well as customers equip themselves ahead of the summer months to get the best footage on their holidays. Vision was also up, +6.8%, driven by sales of higher-end products.

Fashion this week was down 2.8%, with higher temperatures last year driving warm weather clothing sales in 2016. Beauty, wellbeing and leisure sales, however, were up 8.2% driven by strong sales across beauty, and womens formal wear also had a good week, seeing sales rise by 12.8%.
