It was in this village that Ulla Thorsell’s companion lived until his disappearance.

Michel Drucker then wrote a poignant message: “I’m going to ring your doorbell and you’re going to appear as always, on the front steps of the house. When it’s barely 7 a.m., 7:30 a.m., you were already in your office, facing your keyboard“. A very early hour for a meeting. And it’s not for nothing that the two men saw each other early in the morningsince it was Charles Aznavour who asked the presenter of Vivement Dimanche: “Come in the morning instead, it’s better, because I get up early. I’ll make you listen to my latest compositions and I’ll tell you about some of my memories that you’re so fond of”the artist had asked him.

Michel Drucker: “Your star is the program Questions pour un Champion!”

But it is above all not to disturb his companion, that the singer had made this request to Michael Drucker : “But, above all, don’t come around 5 p.m., that’s where Ulla watches Questions for a Champion. She doesn’t like being distracted!” The France 2 presenter then smiled when the singer asked him for this favor: “It really amused me to discover that like all huge stars – and God knows if you are one – you are not necessarily the first star in your home. The star in your home is the program Questions pour a champion !”.
