At the beginning of the year I expressed my excitement at the announcement that Helen Fielding will be publishing a third installment of her Bridget Jones series, seventeen years after we first met the relationship obsessed, calorie counting singleton. Now, we have news of the publication date – 10th October – and also the title. Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy.
In my post back in January I wondered what adventures would be in store for a 21st Century Bridget. It seems that technology and social media will play a part in her lovelife, as is to be expected, since it is now such a big part of life in general. But will she still be with Mark Darcy? Or will she be a singleton once more? In approximately five months, we will find out.
