Literary agents for Bridget Jones author Helen Fielding have confirmed that the upcoming third novel will have an autumn release date.

Aitken Alexander Associates have not provided an exact date as the bestselling author is currently 'still writing the book'. However, they are 'under the impression it could be on sale in October of this year', according to BBC Newsbeat.

The book, which does not yet have a title, will follow on from the hugely popular previous novels, Bridget Jones's Diary (released in 1996) and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (1999).
