Karine Le Marchand has announced the return of the show "Une ambition intime" on M6 "in a few months". Four politicians will confide in the presenter. Launched in 2016, in the run-up to the presidential elections, the show caused controversy.

The Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin, the president of the RN, Jordan Bardella, the Green MP Sandrine Rousseau and the national secretary of the Communist Party, Fabien Roussel, will confide in Karine Le Marchand for the program "Une ambition intime", back on M6 "in a few months", the host announced on Thursday.

These four political figures "who have been talked about more and more in recent years" embody "a possible succession to the highest offices of the State", explains the famous presenter on Instagram, where she posted a photo of her future guests, accompanied by the logo of the show. "What are their backgrounds, their true personalities, and their inner ambition?" she asks. "Thank you to them for trusting me, you will discover their portraits in a few months. For the moment: we're working!", concludes Karine Le Marchand.

2.2 million viewers on average

Highly criticized when it was launched in 2016, "An Intimate Ambition" questions politicians in the mode of confidence, in their daily lives, relying more on emotion than on the debate of ideas. In the run-up to the 2017 presidential election, Nicolas Sarkozy, Arnaud Montebourg, Bruno Le Maire, Marine Le Pen, Alain Juppé, François Bayrou, François Fillon and Jean-Luc Mélenchon played along, telling the story of the birth of their political ambitions or revealing difficult moments in their lives.

After a hiatus in 2018 and 2019, when the show hosted celebrities, Karine Le Marchand interviewed Marine Le Pen again in 2021, as well as Valérie Pécresse, Rachida Dati, Anne Hidalgo and Marlène Schiappa. This last edition attracted nearly 2.2 million viewers on average in November 2021.
