Last week the P Pod was featured in a storyline featuring Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) and Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) as their son Oliver is diagnosed with mitochondrial disorder, a rare incurable illness.

The P Pod with its purple cover and wheelbase for mobility around the home was spotted in several scenes.

It combines a standard or custom moulded support within a conventional bean bag base to provide a comfortable seating solution.

Steve Stone, commercial director at SOS, said: “We are thrilled to have our P Pod feature on such a well known and loved British soap.  It is a great platform for us.”
