Hugh Grant has said he has decided not to reprise his role as Daniel Cleaver in the third Bridget Jones adaptation, Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy.

Speaking to Free Radio, the actor said of the planned film: "I decided not to do it. But I think they're going to go ahead and do it without Daniel."

He added: "The book's excellent, by the way, but the script is completely different – well, the script as I last saw it a few years ago."
