Anna Bassi, editor-in-chief of the children’s title, said: “Our fantastic ABC results clearly demonstrate that the editorial team’s absolute dedication to providing children with a truly engaging, trustworthy and age-appropriate read, really works.

“In a sector that continues to be dominated by big entertainment brands and plastic covermounts, The Week Junior proves time and time again that outstanding editorial content is way more inspiring and covetable than gimmicks or famous faces.”

The team behind the fortnightly Private Eye were celebrating a “stonking” UK circulation of 227,630, and a worldwide total of 240,505, after both figures grew by three per cent.
