Can you believe it’s been 15 years since the first Bridget Jones film? But instead of being tired and saggy, this third instalment of Bridge’s story is as fresh and funny as ever.

It’s great to have Renee back in Bridget Jones’s Baby as the eternal singleton who has finally beat some of her demons. But she’s still struggling to keep her love life together.

Especially when she becomes entangled with ex Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) and hunky tech billionaire Jack (Patrick Dempsey) within a few days of each other and winds up pregnant. V. awkward!

Luckily Bridget’s got all her old pals. As well as some new ones, including Sarah Solemani, who steals the show as wisecracking Miranda. And they’re all on hand to help her out as the blokes tussle to prove who’d make the best daddy.

Hilarious, heart-warming and totally brilliant, this is Bridget at her best. Welcome back!
