Some copies of the new Bridget Jones novel, Mad About The Boy, have suffered an unfortunate printing error which means they accidentally include 40 pages of comedy actor David Jason’s autobiography, the Evening Standard reports.
The book’s publishers, Penguin Random House, are apparently trying to “frantically weed out” the rogue copies, some of which have already been discovered by members of the public.
“Yes there was a small print error,” says a spokesman at Randy Penguin HQ. “I can’t say how many.”
Helen Fielding’s third Bridget Jones book - in which she revealed she has controversially killed off the character of Mark Darcy - is officially released today, on what is traditionally the biggest day of the year for the publishing industry.
Only Fools And Horses star Jason’s autobiography, imaginatively titled My Life, is also published today. It’s unclear if it has any bits of Bridget Jones accidentally printed in it.
