Actress Renée Zellweger will date a toyboy 28 years younger in the next Bridget Jones movie.

The star, 55, will lock lips with Netflix heart-throb Leo Woodall in Mad About The Boy.

Insiders confirmed One Day star Leo, 27, will play Bridget’s love interest in the film, which is about to start filming.

The fourth movie in the series will kick off with hapless Bridget navigating life as a single mum of two following the death of Colin Firth’s character Mark Darcy, reports The Sun.

A source said: “Bridget is going to be a real cougar in the new film and she’ll be seen starting a relationship with a much younger character played by Leo”.

Woodall – seen here in Netflix hit One Day – will play her love interest.

“He was thrilled about landing the part and will have a major role as her love interest in Mad About The Boy.

“Bridget is a single mum trying to navigate a new world of social media and dating apps after Mark’s death, so she’s definitely going to end up in a pickle.

“Hugh Grant is back as Daniel Cleaver, so there will be a love triangle between Bridget’s older flame and this much younger new man.”

Bridget became a mother in the most recent instalment.

In Helen Fielding’s 1996 novel Bridget Jones’s Diary, the title character lists the type of boyfriend she does not want — but doesn’t mention anything about age.

The film version, released in 2001, made more than $426 million at the box office.

Its sequel, Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason, came three years later, with 2016’s Bridget Jones’s Baby revealing the character was pregnant.

The latest film is also based on a book, published in 2013.

Author Fielding, 66, said of Mad About The Boy getting the big screen treatment: “Every film that gets made is a miracle. I think it’s really difficult to make films and to make them happen and to make them good — and we want it to be really good”.

Renee is moving from the US to London for the film.

Earlier this month, she was seen looking for properties with her fiance, British TV presenter Ant Anstead.
