Last August, the production was forced to stop the filming of the Meilleur Pâtissier because a person contracted the coronavirus (ten cases were then declared). Everyone therefore had to be tested before being placed in isolation. It was not until last September that filming resumed at the Château de Groussay, in Montfort-l’Amaury.

She was still able to participate in the show by following the events from a distance. The candidates, his sidekick Cyril Lignac and presenter Julia Vignali saw her on a giant screen.

And it’s a shoot that is so nice to stay at home, it was not terrible, “continued Mercotte. But her optimistic nature took over and she had fun with the small team that was with her. It was a bit like a vacation.

To compensate for his absence, the production offered Julia Vignali to taste the desserts alongside Cyril Lignac. “ Usually, I just have a teaspoon, and I dig , she confides. But there, I had my own plate. I let go, especially since Mercotte is, usually, my guardrail … “, confided the companion of Kad Merad to Télé 7 jours in August.
