The announcement was surprising to many, including MTV representatives, who claimed that the final decision was unexpected.
A highly damaging video has emerged of French Presidential candidate Francois Fillon's British wife Penelope admitting, in 2007: 'I have never actually been his assistant or anything like that.'Mr Fillon was considered the front-runner to become President this spring but his candidacy has become mired in scandal amid allegations his wife and children had been paid large salaries by French taxpayers despite little evidence of any work.
Once all guests have told their stories, there is usually a "question and answer" segment where audience members ask guests questions relevant to their situations, although usually the questions insult a guest or flash (show their breasts to) the audience in exchange for "Jerry Beads" (Mardi Gras-style beads with the show logo).
After finishing the interview, Springer announces the entrance of another guest whom the first guest would like to confront.
He faces a strong challenge from the Far-Right Marine Le Pen and increasingly from the independent centrist Emmanuel Macron.
Earlier this week it emerged Wales-born Mrs Fillon had no identification badge or email address during a decade 'working' as a highly paid parliamentary aide.
The second guest enters the stage, and a confrontation between the two guests usually occurs, often breaking down into a brawl that is eventually broken up by on-set security personnel.
Once the fight has been quelled, Springer interviews the second guest about the situation faced by the first guest.
