It’s the time of year where we suddenly see a great deal more of certain faces.
And yes, I’m talking about the likes of Hugh Grant, Kate Winslet, and Renee Zellweger, as the Christmas rom-coms continue to fill up TV listing schedules.
But this evening, Renee Zellweger stars in another film – Judy, a movie about American actress Judy Garland, showing on BBC Two.

The film stars Renee Zellweger, Jessie Buckley, Finn Wittrock, Rufus Sewell and Michael Gambon.
And the lead is very different to how we see her as the loveable chaotic character in Bridget Jones’ Diary.

But in real life, Renee’s love life is somewhat more glamorous.
She went out with Jim Carrey for one year, before she surprisingly married a country star Kenny Chesne – though the two split after three months.
In 2009, Renne dated heartthrob Bradley Cooper, and the pair were together for two years.
But just months after they split Bradley was named the Sexiest Man Alive by the magazine People.
He told the magazine at the time: “I think it’s really cool that a guy who doesn’t look like a model can have this. I think I’m a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying.”
Speaking of being single after his break up with the star he said: “If you’re a single man and you happen to be in this business,” he says, “you’re deemed a player. But I don’t see myself as a ladies’ man.”

Now, the Bridget Jones star is with a British TV presenter named Ant Anstead, 42.
He told an interviewer from Extra a few months ago that the pair are taking things slow.
Ant said about the possibility of the two moving in together: “I would say it would be too early for that…We’re taking things nice and slow, and we’re really happy.”
