Colin Firth has confirmed he'll be back in Mark Darcy mode for Bridget Jones 3, alongside Renee Zellweger and Hugh Grant!

We can't contain our excitement here at InStyle HQ, as Colin Firth has revealed he'll be back in cheesy Christmas jumpers to play Mark Darcy in the third Bridget Jones movie.


The new movie will also see the return of Renee Zellweger as the calorie-counting Bridget and Hugh Grant, as Mark’s love rival Daniel Cleaver.

Oscar-winning Colin admitted he was looking forward to working with the original cast once again: “It does become a bit of a family at the time, it'll be like one of those rather fraught family reunions at Christmas”.


The King's Speech star was also enthusiastic about the direction of the new film: “I'm always interested to see where it's taken, and it does look as if it's going somewhere interesting.” The plot is said to follow Bridget and Mark’s failed attempts to conceive a child, leading to a fling between Bridget and Daniel, resulting in yet more drama in the love-triangle.

We literally cannot wait to find out what happens next for Bridget!
