Printers' 'Bridget Jones moment' leaves fans baffled
LONDON (AFP) - Fans of Bridget Jones, rushing to find out the London diarist's latest adventures, were left baffled on Thursday after pages from the autobiography of a British actor were mistakenly inserted in her new book.
"The printers have had a Bridget moment," said a spokesman for publishers Vintage.
"A printing error has been detected in some of the very early copies of Bridget Jones: Mad About The Boy," she explained.
Readers were given an unexpected peek at a preview from the autobiography of David Jason, the much-loved star of BBC TV sitcom Only Fools And Horses. Around 40 pages of his work found their way into early runs of Helen Fielding's latest book, the third in the Bridget Jones saga.
