Bridget’s mum from ‘Bridget Jones’s Diary’
Played by Gemma Jones
Bridge’s mortifying mum Pam never wastes an opportunity to humiliate her daughter. Like that time she ran off with an orange-tanned shopping channel star Julian and over shared about their sex life. Or got a job in the local department store demonstrating a French egg peeler (‘Have it oeuf!’).
Cringiest moment Pam could win a Pulitzer prize for clangers. Here she is introducing Bridget to Mark Darcy for the first time since they were kids: ‘Mark, you remember Bridget? She used to run around your lawn with no clothes on.’
