Former tennis player Henri Leconte has revealed that he was initially asked by producers to star in a French reality TV survival show that tragically became the scene of the deaths of three sports stars.
According to The Telegraph, Leconte said: "I am shocked and devastated. I learned this morning, very early on television. I'm even more shocked because they contacted me to take part, but I couldn't."
In all, 10 people, including both helicopter pilots, perished in the crash.
