Life and career

The son of a Belgian father and a French mother, Minne studied in Brussels for his baccalauréat (secondary school qualification) before moving to Paris in 1989.[1]

In Paris, Minne studied the dramatic arts, shortly after his career in television began. In 1992, he started working for the French TV programme Matin Bonheur where he worked for five years. Following his departure in 1997, he became both presenter and co-producer of Cercle de minuit on the same channel.[1]

For 20 years, his work has constituted an original contribution of major significance in many ways. His demonstrated skill and unparalleled creativity on the field have earned him widespread recognition. His career was marked by a nomination for a 7 d'Or award (equivalent of an Emmy Award in the United States) for Best TV Host in 2000, for his work with Universal Studios. It was the first time in the history of television that a French television presenter was nominated for his work with a major American company.[1]

Minne was the French commentator for the Eurovision Song Contest from 1995 to 1997. Having presented Le choix gagnant (1996), Jeux sans frontières (co-hosted with Jean Riffel in 1997) and the final season of Les Écrans du savoir in 2000, he also has hosted the game show La Cible on France 2. Minne then became the host (co-host along with Sarah Lelouch from 2003 till 2005 and Anne-Gaëlle Riccio from 2006 till 2009) of the popular game show Fort Boyard. In 2013 he co-hosted a series special to celebrate 50 years of Intervilles. In 2014, he hosted the French version of Pyramid on France 2.

Personal life

On 7 August 2014, Minne came out as "hétéromo"[2] on the television programme Les Grandes Gueules on the French TV channel RMC.
