BRID­GET JONES nov­el­ist and screen­writer He­len Field­ing is sell­ing her Hol­ly­wood home for £2.6 mil­lion.

The Bri­tish au­thor, above, who was a Lon­don news­pa­per jour­nal­ist be­fore her block­buster book and film ca­reer, has lived just above Sun­set Strip in LA for 17 years.

She could be in for a healthy profit, hav­ing bought the three-bed­room bun­ga­low for £1.06 mil­lion. It is spa­cious at 2,700 sq ft. Glass doors open to a shal­low log­gia run­ning the length of the house and over­look­ing the pool and din­ing ter­race, be­low.

Field­ing is mov­ing to a £4.25 mil­lion farm­house she has had built, bor­der­ing Brent­wood and Santa Mon­ica. It has five bed­rooms and a pool­side ca­bana with its own fire­place, bar and bath­room.
