Renee Zellweger has reprised her role as Bridget Jones

However her life becomes somewhat complicated when she meets handsome Jack Qwant (Patrick Dempsey) at Glastonbury Festival. The discovery that she is pregnant just a few weeks later poses the question – who is the father?

Fans won't find out the answer until the film is released later this year, and it appears the cast are being left in the dark about how the film concludes too, as screenwriter Helen Fielding wrote three different endings to avoid any spoilers.

"It's kind of brilliant," Renee told the Sunday Express. "None of the cast know who fathered Bridget's baby or who she'll choose as her beau. The plan is to keep us all in the dark, right up to the premiere."

Renee was joined by Colin Firth and Patrick Dempsey to film the new movie in London late last year. The film also features a cameo from Ed Sheeran – who appears in the trailer – and told fans he "loved" having the opportunity to become an actor for the day.
