The big family of Love is in the meadow is bereaved. On the night of Friday June 24 to Saturday June 25, Jean-Claude Coly killed himself by hanging in the barn of his farm in La Frenaye, in Seine-Maritime, as indicated by Le Courrier Cauchois. An emblematic figure of the M6 program, the 53-year-old farmer had found the woman of his life by meeting his partner Maud. From their relationship, they welcomed their daughter Charlotte in 2014.
Leaving a family and loved ones in grief, the death of Jean-Claude Coly also upset the host of the program Karine Le Marchand. After the announcement of her death, she split a moving message on her Instagram page. “My Jean-Claude, words fail me, but not my tears. Thank you for giving me so much joy and affection at each of our reunions. You have chosen to say stop, so rest in peace. My thoughts go towards Maud and your little Charlotte”.

Like Stéphane Plaza’s friend, former candidates and the production paid tribute to this breeder who marked the history of L’Amour est dans le pré. “The family of Love is in the Meadow is in mourning. Jean-Claude was one of its most appreciated members, funny, jovial. It has been a privilege to meet and know him all these years. All our thoughts are with Maud, their family and loved ones,” the channel posted on its professional Twitter account.
On the morning of Friday, June 24, a contestant from Remember the Lyrics would die in tragic circumstances. Antoine Lenoir was the victim of a terrible road accident on the D1017 in Fresnes-Mazancourt, between Péronne and Roye, reports Le Courrier Picard. At the wheel of his vehicle, the 19-year-old young man lost control of his car before hitting a heavy weight. In cardiorespiratory arrest, the victim was taken out by a road user who tried to resuscitate him, in vain.
Known for having participated in the Nagui game in 2021, Antoine Lenoir was passionate about music and gave voice during musical performances in his region, or on social networks where the young bartender published many videos. In particular, he was to perform in concert on July 2, 2022 in Guyencourt-Saulcourt and had participated in a number of Do not forget the lyrics, which would be broadcast on July 8.

“I am very saddened to hear this news. I had him as a student when I was a teacher. He had left to make a wonderful career in song”, regretted the mayor of Roye, Pascal Delnef, to our colleagues. If Nagui has not yet reacted publicly to the disappearance of the former candidate, the production has shown its support for his relatives in a press release on Twitter. “The whole team of Don’t forget the lyrics is very saddened by the premature and tragic departure of Antoine. We will remember him as an endearing and sunny young man, passionate about music. Our thoughts are with his family and to all his loved ones in this terrible ordeal”, can we read on the social network.
The TF1 program, Bienvenue chez nous, is bereaved at the start of 2017. One of the candidates was found dead on Sunday, January 1, at his home. Jean-Richard, one of the two owners of the Le Relais gîte in Lavoute-Chilhac (Haute-Loire), died at the age of 48, a few days before the program was broadcast on TF1.
As La Montagne reveals, the autopsy concluded that the death was natural. Maylis Carcabal, director of communication for TF1 programs, confirmed the maintenance of Bienvenue chez nous. “There are no rules of conduct in these cases, which are fortunately very rare. We approached the family and relatives of the deceased person to find out if they accepted that the broadcast be maintained. We have had permission. However, a tribute is paid at the start of the program,” she said.
The program Cauchemar en cuisine on M6 also deplores the death of one of its candidates at the beginning of 2017. Jean-Michel Rétif, manager of the restaurant “Au coin du feu” in Vandoeuvre-lès-Nancy, in Meurthe -et-Moselle, was found dead on Tuesday morning in the reserve of his establishment.
As Loractu reports, investigators suggest the 50-year-old committed suicide. A letter was found next to him. Jean-Michel Rétif wanted to join the show in order to put his restaurant, on the verge of bankruptcy, back on the right track.
It’s a day the world of sports and reality TV will never forget. On March 9, 2015, two helicopters, which were being used for the filming of the TV show Dropped, collided near Villa Castelli in Argentina. The result is dramatic: all ten people on board are dead.
Among the victims are three renowned French athletes: sailor Florence Arthaud (57), swimmer Camille Muffat (25) and boxer Alexis Vastine (28). According to the investigators, a problem of visual detection would be at the origin of the drama. One of the pilots was probably blinded by the sun.
Dropped, an adventure reality show created in Sweden, was to be broadcast in France on TF1 during the summer of 2015.
One of Koh-Lanta’s adventurers, 25-year-old Gérald Babin, died of a heart attack during a tug-of-war in 2013, when the game aired its thirteenth season on TF1.
A black year for Koh-Lanta. A few days later, the show’s doctor, Thierry Costa, committed suicide.
François-Xavier, emblematic figure of Secret Story 3 in 2009, died on August 8, 2011 in the town of Bouée in Loire-Atlantique. The one nicknamed “FX” committed suicide, as announced by PressOcean.fr.
A few hours after the tragedy, the investigators established that the young man of 22 years had committed suicide. He had thrown himself under the wheels of a car, moments after another vehicle narrowly avoided him.
“He was a baby in need of affection, even if the media saw him as shit. He had enormous inferiority complexes. He was very weakened by his years of drugs. He also made numerous rehabs,” testified Cindy, one of “FX’s” friends and Secret Story 3 participant.
