EXCLUDED.  "Complicated for them"  : Laurent Romejko takes stock of the arrival of the new animators

In an interview with Télé Star, Laurent Romejko made a first assessment of the arrival of the replacements for Arielle Boulin-Prat and Bertrand Renard in the program Numbers and Letters. The host of France 3 also took the opportunity to give some news of his former colleagues.

It was an announcement that had the effect of a bomb. Last August, Alexandra Redde-Amiel announced the departure of Bertrand Renard andArielle Boulin-Prat of the issue of numbers and letters. “We did not agree and we regret it. We thank Arielle and Bertrand for the very beautiful page of the game they wrote for so many years”, confided the patron saint of entertainment and games of France Télévisions in the columns of Parisian.

In a press release sent to Agence France-Presse a few days later, the two judges of the France 3 game claimed to have been “coerced and forced“to surrender their aprons and evoked”a situation of rare violence“. “What is modestly referred to as a ‘contractual disagreement’ arose, because FTV demanded a reduction in our salary of around 60% and refused to grant us the CDI which we had the audacity to claim. “, explained those who had been on the air for 47 and 36 years.

Laurent Romejko: “They arrive on a set where there are the ghosts of Bertrand and Arielle”

In an interview granted to Télé 7 Jours on August 29, Patrice Laffont had formalized the names of the replacements by Bertrand Renard and Arielle Boulin-Prat: Stephane Crosnierformer contestant of the show, and Blandine Mayor, teacher in small section. And a few months after starting to make their mark on the show, Laurent Romejko drew up a first assessment of his new judges. “It’s complicated for them. They arrive on a plateau where there are the ghosts of Bertrand and Arielle. As a former candidate, Stéphane is part of the family. Blandine, it’s a nice discovery, she’s lively and fun”confided the host of France 3 in the columns of Télé Star.

The latter also revealed that he still continued to hear from Bertrand Renard and Arielle Boulin-Prat: “We talk to each other regularly. What happened to them made me sad. But I take news of their health more readily than of the progress of their negotiations with management. I understand that they are still ongoing, through their lawyers”.
