My clio also has starting problems...HELP!

Hello, I'm new to this forum and also a girl so please if you can help me in any way...please explain it simply!!!!

I love my 2001 1.2 clio but over the past 6 months or so it keeps refusing to start first time. This only ever happens in the morning and it only happens every once in a blue moon. I thought it might be spark plugs so I had them replaced but no joy. I then cleaned my fuel with a fuel line cleaner which appeared to have worked for a a few weeks but then back to not starting. I had cleaned the fuel again recently but the problem is persisting and more recently getting worse.

It will start the second time I try and turn it over but this morning it took 8 attempts!!!!

PLEASE have you ANY suggestions. HELP!!!!!!!!!!
