One Born Every Minute returns to Channel 4 on Tuesday, 10th March, 2015, with One Born Every Minute: The Dads launching simultaneously.

Creative agency The Brooklyn Brothers is responsible for the creative which will demonstrate how Vax helps consumers reverse the messy consequences of everyday family life. Products featured in the idents include the Vax Air Cordless Switch and Air Steerable vacuum cleaners, Steam Fresh Combi steam cleaner, Dual Power Max carpet washer and PowerWash 2200W pressure washer.

The partnership was brokered by Jane Hector-Jones, Partnerships and Digital Manager, Channel 4 Sales and Charlotte Dearsley, Associate Director, Broadcast Investment, MediaCom.

This partnership with Channel 4 gives us a perfect opportunity to introduce even more UK families to our unique range of vacuums, carpet washers, steam cleaners and pressure washers. And with Miranda Hart's vocal talents bringing a breath of fresh air to our advertising, we’re confident this campaign will prove to be our most successful yet".

Charlotte Dearsley, Associate Director, MediaCom Manchester, said: "This is a fantastic partnership for both brand and broadcaster, demonstrating how sponsorship can be utilised to promote both brand messaging combined with a more tactical, product-led, contextual approach.
