Montreal, March 31, 2021 – ELLE Fictions’ first original series, Elle a dit oui, debuts on April 8 at 8pm! Host Julie Ringuette welcomes Valérie Roberts to kick off this brand, new talk show highlighting the weddings of Quebec most beloved personalities.
Among the 20 guests visiting Julie Ringuette’s majestic stage to reminisce and share memorable moments from one of the most important days of their lives, featured personalities will include Patricia Paquin, Mélissa Bédard, Julie St-Pierre, Laurence Bareil, Patrick Langlois, Guylaine Tanguay and Martin Vachon, as well as Claudie Mercier (OD Afrique du Sud) and Rafaëlle Roy for two engagement specials. Guests will share sentiments, secrets and sometimes particularly humorous moments with the host. Close friends will join the conversation by sharing their own memories. Among these, Annie Villeneuve, Sébastien Benoît, Geneviève Borne, Pierre Hébert and Jessica Barker will drop by to partake in the retrospect. Directed with finesse by Nicole Dussault (L’amour est dans le pré), the talk show promises to seduce viewers with authentic, touching conversations.
“I’m overjoyed to host this new talk show! Through fun, emotional conversations, we’ll all get an up-close and personal look into the highly charged emotional memories evoked when my guests start reminiscing about their weddings. And with the marrying season on pause, it’s fun to dive back into these unforgettable events, live vicariously through times past, all while keeping it light and bonding with my guests!”, says host Julie Ringuette.
Canadian music plays an important role in Elle a dit oui. In each episode, an artist performs a meaningful piece to revive the memories and emotions of the big day. Bobby Bazini, Marc Dupré, 2Frères, Claude Cobra (Bleu Jeans Bleu), Rita Baga, Claudia Bouvette and others will deliver warm, intimate performances that are sure to transport both our guests and audiences alike!
