Bridget Jones back - with a toyboy
Bridget Jones fans can today get their latest update on the life of the world's most famous singleton.
They already know about the main plot twist of Bridget Jones's Diary, Mad About The Boy, after extracts from Helen Fielding's book were published in the Sunday Times Magazine.
Fans were shocked and upset to learn that hero Mark Darcy is dead and Bridget has become a widow.
More than a decade after the last novel in the saga, it turns out unlucky-in-love Bridget married Darcy and gave him two children - only for Fielding to kill off the awkward yet successful barrister.
Heralding the arrival of ''chick lit'', Bridget Jones's Diary started life as as a newspaper column in 1995.
Two best-selling novels followed, with Hollywood blockbuster film adaptations featuring Renee Zellweger as Bridget and Colin Firth as Darcy .
Portrayed as a stereotypical 1990s London thirty-something worried about her weight, smoking and alcohol intake, Bridget struck a chord with women of her generation.
The modern-day heroine's story - loosely based on Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice - was centred around love interests Darcy and her cad boss Daniel Cleaver.
After hearing from her last in 1999 with Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, readers will now find Bridget as a 51-year-old widow obsessed with wrinkles.
Fielding, who has always denied that the books are autobiographical, is herself a 55-year-old single mother-of-two who ended her relationship with television executive Kevin Curran in 2009.
Bridget's new adventures as a fifty-something cougar sees her meet new 30-year-old toy boy boyfriend, Roxter, on Twitter, five years after Darcy's death.
