Jones's Diary printers 'have a Bridget moment'

The publisher of Bridget Jones's Diary has confirmed to ITV News that readers got an "accidental preview" of David Jason's autobiography in some copies of the latest Helen Fielding novel.

Vintage Publishing said its printers had "had a Bridget moment", although it stopped short of labelling them plonkers:

The printers have had a Bridget moment. A printing error has been detected in some of the very early copies of Bridget Jones: Mad about the Boy.

Copies printed on one day have given readers an accidental preview of David Jason's autobiography.

We are taking steps to remove these copies from sale and will be replacing misprinted stock as soon as possible.
