Just before Christmas, we invited a few of the ‘lads’ over for a festive jumper party.

It turns out the monstrosity Mark Darcy wore in the first Bridget Jones movie is now well and truly in fashion.

So the hunt was on for a jumper featuring a Christmas pudding with antlers.

Funny how fashions return, isn’t it? It’s like 1984 all over again.

What next, mullets and shell suits? Do I need to grow my hair like Wicksy from EastEnders?

I explored all the Commercial Road stores, but most jumpers were priced in the £35-£45 price range.

Knowing they’ll be as un-cool as Bros next year, I opted for the Primark £15 itchy option.
