Bridget Jones (Renee Zellweger) careens at high speed towards her 43rd birthday without a wedding ring on her finger. She works as a producer at Hard News alongside old boss Richard Finch (Neil Pearson) and newscaster pal Miranda (Sarah Solemani), who suggests a hedonistic girls-only weekend at a music festival.

The pals descend on a muddy field where a late-night blunder into the wrong yurt leads to a spontaneous coupling with a handsome American love guru called Jack Quant (Patrick Dempsey). A few days later, Bridget is powerless to resist the silky charms of old flame Mark Darcy (Colin Firth), who is separating from his wife.

A pregnancy test at work confirms Bridget is about to become a mum, if only she knew who the father was. Bridget Jones's Baby throws a warm, affectionate and frequently hilarious baby shower for characters we've grown to love, and proves Bridget is no closer to achieving her Happy Ever After.
