Eccentric French TV star twins BOTH die of Covid in a week at the age of 72

Eccentric French TV star twins, who became famous in a 1980s science fiction series and infamous for their mutual love for plastic surgery, both died of Covid within a week.

Igor Bogdanoff died of coronavirus today, six days after his twin brother Grichka died on December 28 in a Paris hospital surrounded by loved ones.

Grichka was admitted to the intensive care unit with Covid-19 complications on December 15, the same day as his brother.

It is assumed that none of the twins have been vaccinated against the coronavirus.

The twin brothers were 72 years old and known for their eclectic personalities and clothing, storytelling, television hosting, and plastic surgery.

Their ongoing obsession with plastic surgery, which began in the 1990s, made them unrecognizable and they were often ridiculed for their looks.

Their stretched faces reflected the appearance of the celebrity Jocelyn Wildenstein, who is known as the “Bride of Wildenstein”.

Despite their obsession with plastic surgery, which they denied, both were well-read and intelligent, influenced by the seminars of French essayist Roland Barthes and access to 15,000 books in their family children’s library.

In recent years, they started a weekly television show called Rayon X (X Rays) on France 2 in 2002.

And in August 2004 they presented a special 90-minute program on cosmotology.

Igor Bogdanoff had six children, four from his first marriage, and in 2009 he married his second wife, Amelie de Bourbon-Parme.
