David Ginola has been dumped by the French version of Britain’s Got Talent for his extravagant demands, including a stay at the luxurious Hotel Le Bristol.
The former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, 53, was dropped as a presenter of La France, an irreparable talent, amid the country’s economic downturn.
He had become “priceless,” said an unnamed manager of the M6 channel, which broadcasts the talent competition, Le Parisien.
They said, “The financial aspect weighed heavily. Given the economic context, he had become unaffordable. ‘

Last month, the Bank of France said the country’s economy would shrink by about 10 percent this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The former French international was among the channel’s highest paid presenters and traveled with a team of five assistants.
Ginola, who has worked on the show since 2016, demanded a stay at Hotel Le Bristol, the most luxurious in Paris, with rooms costing up to € 24,000 a night.

Meanwhile, the economy is showing signs of a “progressive” recovery from the third quarter of this year after a 15 percent decline in production in the three months to June.
The country was imprisoned on March 16 to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
There are at least 166,000 cases of Covid-19 cases to date and so far, 29,875 deaths from the disease have been recorded in France during the global pandemic.
If the country faces a second wave, which would see the number of deaths and deaths rise again dramatically, the economy could see a 16 percent decline this year, the national bank said earlier.
Ginola is not the only ex-footballer with such luxury standards. In 2013 David Beckham stayed in the £ 15,000 a night luxury Imperial Suite at the Le Bristol hotel, located on the Faubourg Saint Honoré in the city center.
The beautiful 3475 m² suite is the largest in the hotel and can accommodate up to twelve people.
Ginola was one of the more highly regarded players in Europe in the early 1990s after leading PSG to the title and receiving Player of the Year in France.
