After the announcement last weekend of the departure of Laurence Boccolini at the presentation of “Everyone wants to take his place” on France 2, the management of France Télévisions is working to find him a successor. She still has a bit of time ahead of her, as some of this summer’s shows have already been boxed.
To find the rare pearl, the public group decided to test several personalities. According to our information, Samuel Etienne, future former presenter of the morning of France Info, is one of the lucky ones. The journalist knows well the exercise of the game to embody each afternoon on France 3 “Questions for a champion”. Another figure of the Three is also in the ranks: Jean-Luc Lemoine. At the head of “Samedi d’en rire” on a daily basis, the former face of “Touche pas à mon poste” rubbed shoulders with the genre on C8 in 2016 with “Guess My Age”.
Among the applicants, we also find Damien Thévenot. In the past, the host of “Télématin” at the weekend hosted the game “One word can hide another”. Since 2017, he has also participated in “Everyone has their say”, the format of Olivier Minne and Sidonie Bonnec programmed before “Don’t forget the words” by Nagui sur la Deux. Another candidate: the ghost Vincent Cerutti, ex-host of “Dancing with the stars” on TF 1 and current voice of the morning of M Radio. As for Bruno Guillon, at the head of “Chacun son tour” every morning on France 2, he will not ultimately be in the running.
On the women’s side, two facilitators have also applied. Favorite of the producer of “Everyone wants to take their place”, Simone Harari, the Belgian Sara from Paduwa has already shot a pilot three months ago for his country. Julia Martin, current weather presenter in “Télématin”, also intends to try her luck by turning a test number.
Laurence Boccolini took control of the midday game in 2021, succeeding Naguihistorical presenter of the program launched in 2006. The former figure of the “Weak link” on TF 1 does not intend to leave France Télévisions, a group with which she has projects of which she has not yet detailed the content.
