French antivaxx leaders join hundreds of mourners at funeral of unvaccinated Bogdanoff twins


Hundreds of mourners including anti-vaxxers gathered for the funeral of the ‘extraterrestrial’ French TV star twins who became infamous for their shared loved of plastic surgery.

Igor and Grichka Bogdanoff died with Covid over the new year within a week of each other, both aged 72, after earlier refusing to be vaccinated against the virus.

A large crowd gathered for the service in the Madeleine church in Paris. Prominent guests included former minister Luc Ferry and singer Francis Lalanne, a leading voice of France’s anti-vaxxer movement.

The identical twins shot to fame as the heartthrob presenters of the hit 1980s science show Temps X on the country’s TF1 channel, before carving out careers as amateur and often controversial science writers.

The order of mass bore a photo of the twins with their famous slogan ‘Nothing is impossible in the universe!’.

Igor's ex-wife Amelie de Bourbon-Parme said of their deaths last week: ‘It’s destiny. They couldn’t be separated for long.’

Instantly recognisable in France and a favourite in the country’s glossy celebrity magazines, the twins more recently claimed to have taken part in the creation of Bitcoin.

The brothers became well-known in international cryptocurrency circles and a subject of mockery, largely thanks to an online meme and conspiracy theory that they controlled the markets.

Igor announced earlier this year that they planned to launch their own currency, ‘Exocoin’.

The brothers denied having had plastic surgery to explain their transformed looks, but admitted to having undergone ‘experimentations’ which gave them their extreme high cheek bones, as well as large lips and pronounced chins.

‘We are proud of having faces like extraterrestrials,’ they said in 2010.

The pair will be buried at a private ceremony on Wednesday in the village of Saint-Lary in south-western France, where they were born.

Luc Ferry said he warned the brothers ‘fifty times’ to get vaccinated but both of them refused.
