Must read



It’s no wonder fans are squealing over heartthrob Leo Woodall.

As the One Day star, 27, has been lifting weights before every single scene while filming the upcoming Bridget Jones movie, to maintain his Hollywood physique.

The actor, who has been spotted filming with Renee Zellweger, 55, in recent days, has a mini-gym in his movie trailer to make sure he works out.

Leo is said to be working on his toned frame because he ‘really wants to look the part’ in the hotly-anticipated movie. 

A source told The Sun: ‘Leo is already in great shape. But given the fact he’s supposed to be someone who spends all day doing manual work, he really wants to look the part.

‘So, as the consummate acting pro that he is, Leo is said to be hitting the weights between takes so he can look his best for the cameras. 

‘And judging by some of the images that have been coming from the set of the film, the hard work certainly seems to be paying off.’

Shooting for the fourth instalment of Bridget Jones, Mad About The Boy, has officially begun in London.

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

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.

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.
