Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) has partnered with Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie to create a new packaging design for its Diet Coke brand.

The new packaging features the stars of the movie, including Jennifer Saunders, Joanna Lumley, Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone.

The limited-edition Diet Coke Absolutely Fabulous packs are available across the full Diet Coke range throughout the UK from mid-June.

A limited-edition 250ml bottle will also be available from Liberty London and Boots stores nationwide to mark the launch of the film.

The partnership will be supported by in-store points of sale (POS) and an outdoor advertising campaign, as well as PR, radio and digital platforms.
