These are two departures on which Cyril Hanouna cannot digest. Upon the arrival of Do not touch My TV on D8 (ancestor of C8editor’s note) in 2012, the one nicknamed “Baba” notably recruited two columnists who quickly made a name for themselves in TPMP, namely Bertrand Chameroy and Camille Combal. The first left the show for the first time in 2016, before leaving the talk show permanently in 2018 after a failed return, to today become a figure of C to you on France 5. The second for his part ended his adventure with C8 in 2018 in order to join TF1where today he presents the chain’s biggest brands such as Dance with the stars Or Mask Singer.
In an interview published in the magazine Interview this Thursday, February 8, Cyril Hanouna returned to the departures of Bertrand Chameroy and Camille Combal, his “biggest disappointments“, as he describes it himself: “There are the grateful people, and then you have the others.“As often in the past, the host of TPMP was not kind to Bertrand Chameroy: “It was launched by Jean-Marc Morandini at the start, then by me afterwards, and who today spits in the soup, as he will one day spit in the soup of France 5 or France 2. He is a little thing , he doesn’t really know where he wants to go. For me, these kind of guys, they miscalculate.“
On the subject of Camille Combal, Cyril Hanouna used strong words to evoke his former accomplice: “He left like a thief. You always have to have recognition and they didn’t get any.“By the way, the troublemaker of C8 spoke out about other former chroniclers of TPMP recently left the show: “Another columnist who had very, very great talent but who left is Matthieu Delormeau. In terms of talent, he is far above all the columnists who have left. In terms of pure talent, he is above Chameroy or Combal. I would also like to quote Benjamin Castaldi. Even though he is no longer with me, I am very proud of him. He became a friend. He is an exceptional guy who I love and for whom I will always be there.“
Cyril Hanouna took advantage of this interview to say all the good things he thought of Gilles Verdez: “He’s my favorite columnist. He’s an incredible guy. Even if I don’t agree with him on 95% of the subjects, he comes back every day with a smile to defend his ideas, even if he gets trashed by everyone. He’s a soldier! I have blind confidence in him. You can laugh with him, joke with him, he’s a hard worker and he knows everything about everything.”
