Dempsey, Zelleweger and Firth

The new Bridget Jones film has received a warm response from critics following its world premiere in London, with one naming it “the funniest of the series”.

Renee Zellweger plays Helen Fielding’s perennial singleton for the third time in the film, which this time sees its scatty heroine become pregnant.

Zellweger joined co-stars Colin Firth and Patrick Dempsey at Monday’s launch.

The pair play romantic partners of Zellweger’s character, either of whom could be the father of her unborn child.

Emma Thompson and pop star Ed Sheeran also appear in the film, which is out in the UK on 16 September.
