Big-knickered Bridget Jones is back after 14 years, much to the delight of a generation of women who identified with the calorie-counting, wine-drinking 30-something character.

And where better to celebrate the return of the hapless Jones and the release of third novel Mad About The Boy than author Helen Fielding’s native Primrose Hill?

Ms Fielding will be in conversation with former Radio 4 presenter Sue MacGregor in an event to raise money for Primrose Hill Community Library on October 10 – the day the book is published.

Immortalised forever by Renée Zellweger in the Hollywood film and sequel, Bridget Jones is known throughout the world as luckless in life and love.

Her return after 14 years, following sequel The Edge of Reason in 1999, has been eagerly anticipated by legions of female fans.

The third novel will be available on the night, to be held at Cecil Sharp House in Regent’s Park Road, Primrose Hill, where Ms Fielding will sign copies.
