The diary Bridget Jones might write if she makes it to a care home. Where the tally of daily consumption of wine and cigarettes has translated into tea drunk and loo visits made. Still mad, still wearing purple, Bridget and Joan continue to live it up and be the scourge of the care home. A parody of Bridget Jones and her diary, two mad old women continue to live life to the full as possible.

Meet Bridget and Joan. From their home at the Second Best Exotic Magnolia Retirement Home, this diary charts their eighty years of history and gives way too much information on their outlandish relationship in this Christmas smash hit. Peppered with crazy antics as the pair generally irritate the younger generations, we follow their plight from childhood, through the Second World War - when Joan worked the land while Bridget worked the GIs on the nearby US airbase - to accidental shoplifting in the local ASDA. With laugh-out-loud gags and a frequent nod to Helen Fielding's original, this year's comedy sensation is a warm and witty account of two elderly ladies joined at the artificial hip.
