Argos store card still showing as a default

I went bankrupt in 2018 and my Argos store card is still showing as a default. It was included in my bankruptcy and should show as settled like the other debts in the bankruptcy.
I have tried to get this rectified with Argos to no avail.
Has anyone got any advice or contact details for Argos?

    Written complain to Argos, general address will do.

    They have 8 weeks to issue a final response, then escalate to FOS, and/or ICO.

    You say you have "tried to get this rectified to no avail"  what was there reasoning behind there decision ?

    Could A Debt Relief Order help you ?

    Thank you for your response.
    Argos said they would rectify in January but they haven’t so I need to take it further.
    What does FOS and ICO stand for. Good give a few results!

    FOS (Financial Ombudsman Service) for dispute resolution.

    FOS may refer you to the ICO.

    ICO (Information Commissionaires Office) deals with all Data protection issues.
