Gilles Verdez admits for the first time, being physically attracted to a columnist

As he is about to get married to Fatou, the woman of his life, Gilles Verdez announces in full live his attraction… for a man! And not just anyone, since he is a columnist for Touche Pas à Mon Poste! Would he be changing sides? The Objeko team reveals everything about this more than surprising revelation in this article

Gilles Verdez: football specialist and controversial columnist

Gilles Verdez is now an essential figure on the small screen. It has indeed been 9 years that he sits on the show Touche Pas à Mon Poste. With his very particular look and his nasal voice, he is recognizable among all. However, before being a columnist on Cyril Hanouna’s show, he was a great football columnist for a long time.

Gilles Verdez graduated from the Paris Journalists Training Center in 1988. The following year, he was hired by the newspaper Le Parisien as a journalist-reporter. He notably covers football, his great passion. He is also one of the injured in the Furiani disaster in 1992 during a report. After Le Parisien, Gilles Verdez joined L’Équipe in 1996 as a senior reporter, but then returned to Le Parisien as editor-in-chief. He stayed there until 2009 and then continued in the sports sections, but for France Soir this time.

In 2013, Gilles Verdez joined the team of Touche Pas à Mon Poste, which was then a relatively recent program and already very popular. At the same time, he participates in other C8 shows. Very quickly, his physique, his outspokenness, and his sometimes controversial side made him a key element of the show. Nine years later, he is still present at the post, and it is not likely to stop any time soon!

Crazy love with Fatou

Sorry ladies, but Gilles Verdez is not a heart to take! Ten years before appearing on our small screen in Touche Pas à Mon Poste, the columnist was married to a young Cuban woman, on his native island. He had told on a paranormal special the very special way his request had to be carried out: “Salsa resonates in the streets of Cuba, we are in October 2003 and I am preparing my wedding, my future wife is Cuban. To get married, you obviously have to ask your ancestors for the hand of your bride. Her ancestors who died and there is one, Javier, who is very important to her.“After going through a medium, the marriage was finally agreed! However, this was only short-lived.

Gilles Verdez is now in a relationship with Fatou, a beautiful woman of Senegalese origin that the public of Touche Pas à Mon Poste was able to discover in 2016. In 2017, the columnist made a blunder live by kissing his colleague Isabelle Morini-Bosc in full live. It was of course part of a pledge, there was nothing serious. Fatou, however, takes it very badly, and Gilles Verdez apologizes during the show. He ends up making his marriage proposal to her in full TPMP. More than four years later, they are in full preparation, and about to get married in Senegal.

Gilles Verdez attracted to a man?

While his marriage to Fatou is imminent, would Gilles Verdez have committed a new blunder? Or changed sides? Indeed, the columnist revealed to be attracted by a columnist from Touche Pas à Mon Poste! This Friday, Cyril Hanouna asked his team to designate who they could leave with. Delphine Wespiser then appointed Nicolas Pernikoff. Gilles Verdez however surprised everyone by appointing… Guillaume Genton!

The rather handsome columnist is renowned for attracting many women, but it seems that he also appeals to men a lot! The columnist explained his rather unexpected choice: “I would go with Guillaume. He pleases me cerebrally and I admit also physically. If, one day, I had to go with a man, it would be him. It’s sincere.”. Of course, the whole set demanded a kiss between the two, but that didn’t happen. It looks like Gilles Verdez learned the lesson of his last kiss during the show…
