The filming of the show Le Meilleur Pâtissier , broadcast on M6 and in particular hosted by Cyril Lignac, was interrupted in early August for at least 14 days, after a member of the team tested positive for the coronavirus. The entire production then had to be tested, and Closer  noted the results. According to the celebrity magazine, 16 people from the show tested positive for Covid-19. The Best Pastry Chef  seems to be a mini-cluster on its own, even if we do not know who it is: members of the production, technical staff, candidates or jury.
