A mix up led to early copies of the latest Bridget Jones book having a chunk of Sir David Jason’s memoirs in the middle.
About 40 pages of Sir David’s My Life were printed in Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy, both of which came out on the same day.
“The printers have had a Bridget moment,” said publishers Vintage.
It said it was recalling the misprinted copies and replacing them with correct versions.
“A printing error has been detected in some of the very early copies of Bridget Jones: Mad About The Boy,” said a Vintage spokesman.
“Copies printed on one day have given readers an accidental preview of David Jason’s autobiography.”
Both Fielding and Sir David’s book were published on what the publishing world has dubbed “Super Thursday”, when publishing houses put out some of their highest-priority titles for the Christmas market.
