    And while we’re all for festive activities – markets, pop-up wonderlands and enjoying a mulled wine next to a fireplace in a cosy pub – there’s nothing quite like getting home, sticking your pyjamas on and putting on a Christmas movie.

    But which one will it be? A Christmas Prince? Every single Harry Potter movie? Bridget Jones?

    Well, your winter nights in front of the telly should include all of the above.

    However, if you’re an avid Bridget fan, you’ll be pleased to know that Renée Zellweger herself has hinted that there could be a fourth film in the future.

    Oh, yes.

    During her interview on Australian talk show The Project, she was asked if she would like to make another movie and told the hosts: ‘Oh, gosh, yeah, wouldn’t that be fun?

    ‘It’s really the best job, it really is. So much weirder than folks can imagine from the outside.’

    And it isn’t the first time she has spoken about sharing the next chapter of Bridget’s life. When she appeared on CBS show The Talk, she even jokingly came up with the title of the next instalment: ‘Bridget Jones: The Menopause.’

    She said: ‘No, I know Helen’s [Fielding] written the book, and I love this character. So, I mean, if they call me, I’ll go running.’

    So will we, Renée. So will we.
