It's here! At last we've been given a fresh glimpse of Bridget Jones… for the first time in more than a decade (incredibly, The Edge Of Reason, was released back in 2004).
With the third instalment, Bridget Jones's Baby, landing in less than a year – September 16 to be exact – the movie's producers have finally shared brand-new and updated snap of the franchise's lovable protagonist.

And – shock! – gone is her iconic red diary, replaced instead with an iPad (though it too has been clad in a red cover).
Filming is now under way, with Renée Zellweger and Colin Firth both back on set in London.
Sadly, Daniel Cleaver won’t be putting in an appearance (actor Hugh Grant declined to take part) but Grey’s Anatomy hottie Patrick Dempsey has instead stepped up to the plate – playing an as of yet undisclosed new character.
The new film is said to be based on author Helen Fielding’s newspaper columns, rather than the third book, Mad About The Boy, which was released in 2013.
Of course, as reported by SHEmazing! at the time, the movie's very first scenes were filmed at Ed Sheeran's Croke Park concert back in August.
