Patrick Dempsey to Join Bridget Jones' Diary
McDreamy: Patrick Dempsey will be Colin Firth's love rival

Hold the front page! Our fave medical doctor McDreamy is apparently set to become the latest suitor for unlucky-in-love literary heroine Bridget Jones.

Patrick Dempsey is in talks to join Renee Zellweger and Colin Firth in a new sequel. The former Grey's Anatomy star is in final negotiations to star in the third instalment of the Bridget Jones's Diary romantic comedy.

Reports suggest Dempsey's potential new character will fit into the love triangle story line following Hugh Grant's departure. Personally we'd prefer to see Hugh on film with Patrick and Colin for some serious eye-candy, but we'll settle for just McDreamy and Colin for now.

Sharon Maguire, who directed Bridget Jones's Diary in 2001, will return to helm the project.
