To celebrate, the iconic soft drinks brand has unveiled limited-edition Diet Coke Absolutely Fabulous themed packs. And they’re just as fab as you imagined, sweetie darling.

Fabulous taste, darling!

About Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie

Appropriate for their big screen debut, Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone are still oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hotspots. Blamed for a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party, Eddy and Patsy become entangled in a media storm and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forevermore! RELEASE DATE UK cinemas - 1st July 2016.
