Another year,

a brand new diary.

Once again I was summoned,

kicking and screaming,

to my mother's turkey curry buffet,

where I've had some of the most

shaming experiences of my life.

Hello, darling.

Lovely to see you.

It was, as usual, crammed full

with some of the most dangerous perverts

in the UK,

disguised as close, personal friends

of my parents.

- Hello, Bridget.

- Hello, Una.

- Oh, no, thanks.

- Love the jumper.

- I prefer what's underneath it.

- Uncle Geoffrey!

- Hello, gorgeous.

- Hello.

- Hello, darling.

- Hello, Dad. How's it going?

I wish I was dead.

But this year,

there was one crucial difference.

- Nice jumper.

- My mother's taste never falters.

Never.

You always wonder how it's going

to work out at the end of the story.

Maria and Captain Von Trapp,

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,

Mark Darcy and Bridget Jones.

I've found my happy ending at last.

And nothing in the world can spoil it.

Well, almost nothing.

Bridget Jones,

what the f*ck are you doing?

- I, I can't see anywhere soft to land.

- How about on your arse?

Bridget, unless you want to get sacked

at 6,000 feet,

you will be on your way

in exactly three seconds.

Three, two, one... cue Bridget.

Skydiving:

A dangerous bane to the countryside

and emergency services,

or a safe and exhilarating hobby?

Well... let's see, shall we?

Go. Jump.

For Christ's sakes, go!

- She's out. Unit Two, you got her?

- We see her.

Bridget, open the chute.

Open it.

Open your f*cking parachute!

Pull the thingy or you will diel

Oh.

Honestly,

you forget just one teeny, weeny detail

and everyone treats you like an idiot.

Nobody does it better

Makes me feel sad for the rest

Nobody does it

Half as good as you

Baby, baby

Darling, you're the best

Baby, you're the best...

Where was I?

Oh, yes... Mark Darcy.

The question is:
What happens

after you walk off into the sunset?

Bridget?

Earth to Bridget Sodding Jones.

Bridget, you're on.

You're live.

Well, this is Bridget Jones

for Sit Up Britain,

reporting to you

from a big vat of excrement.

Give me a close-up of the porker.

Who cares about

the odd professional hiccup?

I've been in a functional relationship

with an adult male

for six wonderful weeks,

four fabulous days

and seven precious hours.

Or to put it another way,

71 ecstatic shags.

He's given up being snooty,

and I've given up smoking.

- Loving you...

- Well, he thinks I have anyway,

which is practically the same thing.

...a dream come true...

Mark Darcy is perfect.

Not a f*ckwit, alcoholic, workaholic,

pervert or megalomaniac,

but total sex god

and human rights lawyer.

He is a miracle, really.

Bridget, will you stop?

Stop staring at me.

Go and find something to do.

Sorry.

La la la la la...

So, as you can see,

the incredible truth is

the wilderness years are over.

Bridget Jones is a love pariah no more.

Morning, Bridget. Late again.

Yes. Sorry.

I was in bed with my boyfriend.

He's a human rights lawyer, you know.

Yes, we know.

I cannot believe how fantastic

shagging was last night.

Maybe I'll ring him.

No, no...

Obviously it's important to tell one's

boyfriend how nice he looks naked,

but I have crucial,

Pulitzer Prize winning journalism to do.

Hello?

It's me. Just wondered how you are.

I'm fine, thanks.

Everything all right with you?

Fine, though, er...

I've just had a rather graphic

shag flashback.

And you do have

a genuinely gorgeous bottom.

Thank you.

I'm with the Mexican ambassador,

the head of Amnesty International

and the Undersecretary

for Trade and Industry.
