Wednesday May 12, 2010

French model and actress Noemie Lenoir, most famous as the face of Marks & Spencer, has been found unconscious in a woodland area outside Paris after an apparent suicide attempt.

The 30-year-old was discovered in a forest in La Celle-Saint-Cloud, just outside the French capital, by a man walking his dog.

After the man alerted the emergency services, Noemie was rushed to hospital where she was found to have consumed "large quantities" of drugs and alcohol, sources told AFP.

The French news agency added: "Her life is not in danger after this act which our sources have confirmed was a suicide attempt."

The brunette beauty is the on-off girlfriend of former Chelsea footballer Claude Makelele whom she started dating in 2003. The couple have a five-year-old son, Kellan.
