The world’s favourite singleton is back, as the first full trailer for Bridget Jones’ Baby has been unveiled online.

The third film finds Renee Zellweger’s Bridget dealing with the aftermath of her break-up with Mark Darcy, played by Colin Firth.

Five years after the split, a fortysomething Bridget meets a charming American by the name of Jack Qwant, played by Grey’s Anatomy’s Patrick Dempsey.

Things take a turn when she realises she is pregnant, but is not sure which man is the father.

Writer Helen Fielding was so keen to keep the identity of the father a secret that she is said to have penned and filmed three different endings, so that not even the cast and crew know who it is.

While Hugh Grant’s Daniel Cleever is absent, Emma Thompson joins the cast as Bridget’s doctor, and also advised on the script for the film.

Bridget Jones’s Baby will be released on September 16, 2016.
