If you're in need of some R&R - and let's face it, who isn't at the moment? - but don't have a bath to soak in at the end of the day, Amazon has the answer.

An inflatable bathtub is going viral on TikTok, with people turning to the item as the perfect lockdown purchase.

"Best lockdown purchase so far," one person wrote, with another saying: "I got one of these for Christmas and it was game changing".

This inflatable, portable bathtub, $129.99, fits in the shower so you can enjoy the luxury of a bath, even in a small bathroom.

It's big enough for adults to stretch out in, and even has a backrest so you can sit or lie comfortably.

It's perfect for children who prefer to splash in the bath, or for adults who want somewhere to relax. With hundreds of five star reviews on Amazon, it's a sure fire winner to get you through winter months - or lockdown - with a bit of luxury.

It has a plug on the bottom two layers of the bath so you can drain it at any time. However, it's recommended you buy a pump to make it easier on yourself.

Bath lovers are going wild for the reasonably priced tub. "So comfy. Huge!" says one fan. "Very convenient," says another. "100 stars!" raves someone else.

The bath is made from PVC which is 30% thicker than many others on the market, which reduces the risk of punctures. It's easy to fold and store, so when you're not using it it can be packed away easily, or taken away if you're going on holiday.

It has a spiral air valve which allows for quick and easy inflatation and deflation, and an ordinary air valve next to it if you need to reinflate it. To inflate it you'll need to attach it to a pump, such as the OBEST Electric Air Pump Cordless Portable, $37.99. The bath has two drain plugs, which can be drained at the same time, making it quick to get rid of water. If you're using the bathtub in the shower, simply unscrew the drainage plugs and the water will go down the drain as normal.

It also comes with first-aid repair patch in cases of a puncture - and they offer a free replacement if your bath springs a leak.
