On her forty-third birthday, Bridget Jones is awoken by her mother reminding her that her biological clock is ticking and her time to have children is running out. Later that day, she attends the funeral of Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant), who is presumed dead after a plane crash. While there, she sees her ex Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) with his new wife Camilla. Embarrassed at being single while Mark has moved on, she pretends that another funeral guest is her partner. They bump into each other after the service, have a brief awkward chat, and then go their separate ways.
