Check wires to starter motor, I had this problem with a megane coupe and was informed by the AA that it was a common fault.
The wire in question is the one that feeds the soleniod and because of the postioning of the starter it tends to corrode.
Either cleaning or replacing the spade connection will cure.
If you can bump start the car this is not an immobiliser problem .
In case you are unsure the starter is located at the back of the engine, the wire you are looking for is the smaller of the two.
