Agathe Lecaron is the guest of “There is not just one life in life” this Saturday. At the microphone of Isabelle Morizet, the host of “La Maison des Maternelles” remembers her debut on television, and one episode in particular: her collaboration with her lifelong idol Jean-Pierre Foucault in 2008 to present duo the program “Sacred Evening”. At the time, the young woman was treated to a rather “cold” welcome from the star presenter of TF1.
It was his career dream. And yet, it quickly turned into a nightmare… In 2008, Agathe Lecaron was chosen to host an exceptional number with her lifelong idol Jean-Pierre Foucault. Sacred Evening. The young woman is on a little cloud, she will finally meet the star presenter, the one she imitated in front of her mirror when she was a teenager and of whom she never missed a single show. Fan of Foucault, the young Agathe Lecaron even attended, in the public, the various numbers of Sacred Evening.
“I was not yet who I am today”
“It made me dream and during the pubs I watched Jean-Pierre Foucault with his mini fan. I said to myself: ‘Oh if I had the courage to go see him and all that'”, recalls the host of Kindergartens at the microphone of Isabelle Morizet. His euphoria is however very much lowered during his meeting with Jean-Pierre Foucault. “Honestly, I had a slightly cold reception”, she says, without any bitterness
Because Agathe Lecaron believes that she was not “good”. “I had never done live broadcasts,” she recalls in There is only one life in life. “I think I wasn’t who I am yet. And, in his defense, I think he acted like that because he’s super professional and he was like, ‘But Who the hell have I been put in? What is this little Belgian girl who is not good?’”.
“Agathe Lecaron was charming with me”
Agathe Lecaron had already returned to this episode in the columns of Paris Match in 2018. She went further in her remarks, assuring that Jean-Pierre Foucault had “stole all his lines” during the presentation of the exceptional number of Sacred Evening. Asked by Entertainment TV to react to these statements, the host of TF1 had denied in block. “She accuses me of stealing her lines…but Sacred Evening wasn’t a scripted show, there was no teleprompter, so how could I have stolen his lines?” Jean-Pierre Foucault mainly remembered bugs during the show: “We had a lot of technical problems during filming, but in the end we had a good laugh. In addition, I have met Agathe Lecaron several times since, she has been charming with me”.
