Oasis, the fun and fruity juice drink, is renewing its partnership with ITV2’s Celebrity Juice to continue to bring to life the brand’s cheeky personality. A series of entertaining idents will show the bottle taking part in the ‘Get Fruity’ game show, flirting outrageously with different fruits, which make up the delicious Oasis flavours.

Viewers will also be able to keep up to date with the outrageous Oasis antics off screen by visiting the Facebook page to take part in the ‘Get Fruity’ game show themselves. Money can’t buy prizes such as Celebrity Juice live tickets, props from the show and merchandise will be up for grabs. The bespoke Facebook app will feature a new challenge every two weeks. The Oasis Twitter feed will also invite viewers to chat about the show whilst on the screen and reward followers with tickets to the show.

"We're excited to be partnering with the most popular show of ITV2 for a second time - the sponsorship lends itself to the fun and light-hearted approach that both share towards comedy. The activity will remind viewers of the fruity Oasis drink and cheeky personality of the brand as well as encouraging fans to get involved and win money can't buy prizes." Zoe Howorth, Marketing Director of Coca-Cola Great Britain

On air from Thursday 28th February, the award-winning and most watched ITV2 programme of 2012* returns with its 100th episode and brand new captain Kelly Brook who joins Holly Willoughby to be quizzed on the juiciest celebrity gossip of the week by presenter Keith Lemon. The series of 24 laugh out loud snippets are an ideal match for both Celebrity Juice and Oasis and the humorous nature of the content is guaranteed to get the key audience of 16-24 year old drinkers laughing.
