The Return of Bridget Jones: Mad about the Boy
17 years after we first read her diary, the loveable, relatable, hapless singleton Bridget Jones is set to return in Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy.
To be published on October 10 the new novel will see Bridget clumsily trying to navigate the contemporary virtual world of online life and dating. Author Helen Fielding has remained tight-lipped on which boy it is Bridget is mad about and judging from this extract which was released today by publisher Jonathan Cape, things may have gotten even more embarrassing in a virtual world.

11.27 pm Just presss d SEND. Iss fineisn’t it?
You see, this is the trouble with the modern world. If it was the days of letter-writing, I would never even have started to find his address, a pen, a piece of paper, an envelope, a stamp, and gone outside at 11.30pm to find a postbox. A text is gone at the brush of a fingertip, like a nuclear bomb or exocet missile.
DATING RULE NO:1
DO NOT TEXT WHEN DRUNK
Bridget Jones may be older, but it seems none the wiser, and we can not wait to witness the highs and lows of our favourite drunken singleton.
