While French newspaper coverage of allegations actress Julie Gayet is having an affair with President François Hollande is restrained, that's not the case across the Channel. The Daily Mail says this a sordid Gallic soap, a classic French farce, and the First Lady, Valérie Trierweiler is only getting her "comeuppance". Trierweiler went to hospital suffering from exhaustion when news of the alleged affair broke.
Some articles from today’s French press review:
Daily Mail UK: ‘The rottweiler who’s now been bitten herself – the ambitious French first lady and a spectacular fall from grace’
The Daily Telegraph UK: ‘First Lady in hospital after Hollande ‘tryst in mafia flat’
