The jewellery business Pandora has cashed in on the extra money in our pockets as sales jumped 31 per cent across Britain.

Charm bracelets at the firm, advertised by Tess Daly, are the most popular product, though rings have been impressive, with sales up 20 per cent in the past three months compared with a year ago.

The Danish company’s recent success has been attributed in part to its former chief executive Allan Leighton, who stepped down this year to take over as chairman of the Co-op group.

The jeweller – now led by Anders Colding Friis – has opened 13 stores in the UK this year and a total of 169 here in the past five years.
