Hugh Grant Sends Fans Wild With Bridget Jones Joke To Renee Zellweger At BAFTAs

Hugh Grant Sends Fans Wild With Bridget Jones Joke To Renee Zellweger At BAFTAs

Hugh Grant sent us all into a frenzy last night as he reprised his role as Daniel Cleaver while congratulating Renee Zellweger on her BAFTA win.

The 50-year-old actor - who we still fancy as much as we ever did - couldn't help but make the Bridget Jones' Diary reference before announcing the Best Film nominations, after greeting his former co-star Renee on the way to the stage.

Taking to the microphone at the live event, screened on the BBC, Hugh joked: "First of all, well done, Jones".

As the audience roared with laughter, instantly recognising the movie heart-throb's cheeky line, he added: "That was a very, very silly little dress, I thought".

Why does Daniel Cleaver's insatiable and highly inappropriate flirting still send us weak at the knees?!

This wasn't the only Bridget Jones joke Hugh made during his speech.

Clearly realising he was onto a winner, the actor also made a gag about Colin Firth, who played his love rival Mark Darcy in the 2001 blockbuster smash hit.

"Best Film category is an amazing bunch of films," he said. "I voted - I don't normally do that unless I'm specifically trying to prevent Colin Firth from winning." LOL.

Careful, Hugh, or you'll end up having another brawl with him in the street...
