Valerie Trierweiler 'did not attempt suicide' over Hollande affair

When French President Hollande was photographed on the back of a scooter at his mistress' apartment it made headlines all over the world and it led to the break-up of his relationship with the First Lady, Valerie Trierweiler.

She has now made her side of the story public in her book, Thanks for the Moment, which is now out in English.

The BBC's Sophie Raworth spoke to Valerie Trierweiler for The Andrew Marr Show about her seven-year relationship with President Hollande, and how she took sleeping pills when she heard about the photographs.
