Filming is well underway for the fourth Bridget Jones franchise as Renee Zellweger was spotted on set with One Day's Leo Woodall for a romantic date scene in London. The highly-anticipated movie, announced just last month, is going under the title of Bridget Jones Mad About The Boy, drawing its name directly from Helen Fielding's most recent Bridget Jones novel penned in 2013.

As per the book, our beloved Bridget is now a widow and mum of two, approaching her 50s after the heartbreaking loss of Mark Darcy, iconically played by Colin Firth in the first three films.

While it's scheduled to hit US screens on Valentine's Day 2025, fans are eagerly anticipating the UK release date which is expected to be around the same time. As we count down the days until we welcome back the icon that is Bridget Jones, let's take a look at her cosy scene with co-star Leo...
