The boyfriend alerted police after she sent him a text message saying she had been kidnapped and thrown into the boot of a black car.

A massive search lasted more than 24 hours as around 50 soldiers backed by a helicopter scoured the region before Gaillard reappeared.

Gaillard said her new lover was not involved in the subterfuge.
