He admitted: "I can tell you that Bridget and Mark can't have children, I think that's the way it goes on. So then she makes the huge mistake of going back to Daniel Cleaver for long enough to get pregnant. And I think he dumps her, and she's left stranded, and guess who comes back to rescue her?"

The original movie, based on Helen Fielding's best-selling novel, took approximately $281 million at the box-office.

The second film was panned by critics but still loved by fans as it took around $262 million around the world.
