M&S model Noemie Lenoir recovers after 'suicide bid'
Marks & Spencer model Noemie Lenoir was recovering today after she was found unconscious following an apparent suicide attempt.
The French model was discovered slumped on the ground in a wood outside Paris by a dog walker on Sunday afternoon, according to reports.
A M&S spokesman said: "We're very sorry to hear this and wish Noemie a very speedy recovery.
"Our thoughts are with her and her family at this difficult time."
A French police spokesman said the 30 year old was found in woods in La Celle-Saint-Cloud, on the western outskirts of the capital.
"She was found on Sunday afternoon by a walker," the spokesman said.
"It seems she had consumed drugs and alcohol. She was unconscious for a short period of time."
Ms Lenoir has starred in M&S advertisements alongside other famous faces including Twiggy, Myleene Klass, Erin O'Connor and Lily Cole.
In one advert - which later sparked accusations of sexism - she was seen twirling round in a wooded winter scene wearing a bra and knickers.
