The UK jigsaw industry has been booming throughout the coronavirus pandemic. After all, millions of people have been stuck indoors with extra time on their hands. There was a similar jigsaw boom during the Great Depression.

Sales of puzzles have gone up by 38% - even the Queen is believed to be a fan. The first jigsaw puzzle was created in 1762. It was a map made with the aim of helping children learn geography.
