Bold and the Beautiful spoilers reveal that Ashley Jones is back as Bridget Forrester – a fan favorite. Will the doc return for her sister Hope Logan’s (Annika Noelle) wedding or does something else bring another Forrester lady back to LA? Here’s what we know about the B&B spoilers on the confirmed return of Ashley Jones as Bridget Forrester.
Bold and the Beautiful Ashley Jones is a Fan Favorite
These Bold and the Beautiful spoilers came direct from Ashley Jones who told Soap Opera Digest, “Dr. Bridget Forrester is back, and I love being able to say that.” B&B first brought Jones on in her role as Bridget Forrester back in 2004.
Bridget is Brooke Logan’s (Katherine Kelly Lang) daughter and Katie Logan’s (Heather Tom) niece – and Hope’s big sister. Because she spent so many years in this role, Jones feels that B&B is like home. She loves playing the role of Bridget and said she’ll always come back to the soap when invited.

Bridget Forrester Back for ‘Special Occasion”
Bold and the Beautiful spoilers hint that Ashley Jones is back as Bridget Forrester for a “special family occasion.” She last graced the B&B screen in February of 2016, so she’s been gone a few years. What could bring the family doctor back into the B&B community in LA?
The special family occasion might be the wedding of Hope to Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) since Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) is ready to let Hope have him. Bridget’s return is too soon for Hope’s due date which should be months away – she’s barely pregnant.
#BoldandBeautiful Today Tue July 31: Brooke may not be happy about it, but she sees how this gives her own daughter a clear shot at living happily ever after with Liam. “Seeing Steffy wearing Bill’s necklace?” Brooke muses to Hope. “Learning that she’s going to marry his father? pic.twitter.com/HiyJBNPnWB

Another Daughter Brooke Logan Can Manipulate?
As Logan family matriarch, B&B spoilers have Brooke busy manipulating Hope about her pregnancy and relationship. Does Brooke bring back daughter Bridget to help push her sister Hope into doing what Brooke wants?
Perhaps Brooke plans to use Bridget to further manipulate Liam and pressure him into marrying Hope and forgetting Steffy. It seems more likely that Bridget will be Brooke’s ally in the efforts to get Hope her happily ever after with Liam.
B&B Wedding in the Works?
Bold and Beautiful spoilers wonder if Bridget’s arrival signifies a wedding between Hope and Liam. Soap Central reported that Marissa Jaret Winokur (Broadway phenom and winner of Celebrity Big Brother) is back soon as a wedding planner.
With Steffy and Bill Spencer’s (Don Diamont) wedding plans scrapped, the likeliest choice to get hitched is Liam and Hope. Another hint just surfaced suggesting Ashley Jones is back to Bold as Bridget for a wedding.
Mike Goldberg from We Love Soaps, threw out a teaser when he tweeted Ashey Jones today. He writes, “Welcome back cutie! Who is getting married? Hope and Liam?”

Returns to Scene of Heartaches
Bridget may be back in town for a wedding – but she’ll also face some painful memories. Bridget was raised first believing Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) was her father but back in 1996 she was told that her real dad is Eric Forrester (John McCook).
Bold and the Beautiful spoilers history reminds that Eric’s wife switched the paternity tests to name Ridge as the father. When that was discovered, Brooke, Ridge, and Eric felt they had no choice but to tell a young Bridget the truth.
Brooke’s Long-Ago Interference Produced Hope!
B&B spoilers also recall that Brooke manipulating Hope is similar to her interference in the past with Bridget’s relationships. Years ago, Bridget married Deacon Sharpe (Sean Kanan) and Brooke tried to get him to leave her daughter.
Brooke’s disdain for Deacon turned into lust and she found herself in bed with her daughter’s husband. This caused a major rift between mother and daughter resulting in Hope’s conception.
Brooke and Bridget mended fences, but Hope’s a painful reminder to Bridget of Brooke’s capacity for manipulation. So is Bridget back in town to attend her baby sister’s wedding?
