The definition of a distance contract is contained in reg 5 of The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (legislation.gov.uk)
“distance contract” means a contract concluded between a trader and a consumer under an organised distance sales or service-provision scheme without the simultaneous physical presence of the trader and the consumer, with the exclusive use of one or more means of distance communication up to and including the time at which the contract is concluded
I think most sensible people would consider that in the case of a click and collect purchase that the contract has been concluded when you have paid and have received notification to pick up the item, long before you've actually collected it.
But no doubt Argos will argue that the contract isn't concluded until you've collected it.
