Renee Zellweger was back sporting Bridget Jones’ trademark mini-skirt while shooting scenes for the new Bridget Jones film in Camden, London last week.

The actress, 55, roamed around Haverstock Hill in a mismatched ensemble as she continued shooting parts of the upcoming movie.

Renée, who has played the titular character in the past three films, is currently shooting the fourth instalment, Mad About The Boy, in the capital.

Getting straight into character, Renée wore a green quilted jacket and vintage blue and grey cardigan, teamed with a rather short tartan red skirt that would have sent her ex-boss and former lover Daniel Cleaver, [Hugh Grant] wild. 

In the upcoming film, Bridget enjoys a fling with a hunky younger lover named Rockstar, who is played by One Day star Leo Woodall, 27.

Isla Fisher is also starring in the hotly-anticipated movie, starring as Bridget’s friend. 

In the new film, Bridget enjoys a fling with Rockstar and PE teacher Mr Walker, as played by 12 Years A Slave actor Chiwetel Ejiofor as well as reviving her on-off relationship with Hugh Grant’s Daniel Cleaver.

Chiwetel, 46, was seen shooting scenes last week which means only Hugh and Colin Firth – who has a small role in the movie as the late Mark Darcy – are yet to be spotted in character.

Renee and Leo were spotted filming together on May 18 in hilarious scenes as Bridget got stuck up a tree in Hampstead Heath.

Rockstar, who works as a park warden, seemingly comes to her rescue dressed in an all green uniform.

One onlooker said: ‘Leo and Renee looked like they were having a great time. There were lots of giggles, they seemed to get on really well.’

Bridget Jones filming comes on the heels of sheer delight from fans after the announcement of the beloved character’s return to the big screen.

Renee first appeared as Bridget in 2001’s Bridget Jones’ Diary and returned in 2004’s Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason and 2016’s Bridget Jones’ Baby.

The movie was officially confirmed last month, with Renée and Hugh Grant’s comebacks made official – after his love rat character Daniel Cleaver’s death was falsified in 2016’s third installment.

The fourth movie in the franchise – based on the books by Helen Fielding – will be released by Universal film on US platform Peacock on Valentine’s Day 2025 while internationally, the flick will be released in cinemas.

Emma Thompson – who played Doctor Rawlings in the last film, is also back, with Chiwetel Ejiofor and White Lotus star Leo Woodall also set to star.

Renee has been busy since she arrived in London two weeks ago to reprise her role as the singleton for the fourth, and probably final, time.

She spent four days filming at ITV’s studios in White City, West London, where programmes such as This Morning and Loose Women are made.

There she met presenters from both shows, including Cat Deeley who was said to have been ‘super excited’ at seeing her.

Many studio staff were ‘overcome with excitement’ and desperate to get selfies with the Hollywood star when they realised that the movie was being filmed at their workplace.

Scenes were recorded on the set used by Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly for their now defunct show Saturday Night Takeaway, while audience members from Loose Women were also asked to stay for filming of some scenes.

One source at ITV said: ‘It was chaos, imagine having Bridget come to your work. It was literally a dream come true. The place was absolutely buzzing. Word got round so fast, Cat was so excited.’

Bridget’s creator Helen Fielding has also been spotted at the filming as she prepares to say goodbye to the much-loved character. The film is due out on Valentine’s Day next year.

It was revealed last month that Bridget’s obsession with losing weight will be ‘played down’ in the film amid fears they might be a bad influence.
