If you’re a Bridget Jones fan, you may want to avert your eyes. The latest installment in author Helen Fielding’s series has readers fuming over a significant plot point.
Mr. Darcy is dead.
V devastating. Cigarettes, 5. Alcohol consumed: Too much to care.
Fans of the world’s most famous singleton have been spinning in disbelief since an excerpt from “Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy” was published in Britain’s Sunday Times magazine, revealing that Jones is now a widowed mother of two.
In the new book, Jones is now 51 – but “35 if anyone asks” – and back on the dating scene five years after the passing of her husband Mark Darcy, who was immortalized in the movie versions of the books by Colin Firth.
“Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy” will be released in the U.S. on Oct. 15.
