BBC: Web sale for Bridget Jones' pants

A pair of outsized underpants from the film Bridget Jones's Diary are to be sold on the internet, weeks after they fetched £2,000 at a charity auction.

The pants, which have been signed by actor Hugh Grant with the message "Hello Mummy! Lots of love and kisses", were first auctioned on 14 September.

The sale took place in central London to benefit The Royal Parks Foundation.

Winning bidder Anna Mann said she decided to re-auction the pants on eBay to raise more money for the charity.

Interesting that the BBC should use the word 'underpants', rather than the more generally used euphemism 'underwear', or the more specific 'knickers'.

Underpants were exclusively male wear when I live in the UK. Maybe the meaning has changed?

For specificity, I prefer the acronym invented by a friend of mine (so she says). BGKs are big girls' knickers. VBGKs would accurately describe the Bridget Jone's variety.

"Underpants" is the word Bridget Jones uses.  If you have not read the book or seen the film "Bridget Jones Diary" (the original, not the sequel) you are missing out on a true literary masterpiece.  ... I'm only half kidding.  If was fucking brilliant!
