A contestant in the French version of the reality television show Survivor has died after suffering a heart attack during filming in Cambodia.

Gérald Babin, 25, was taking part in the first day of filming of the 16th season of Koh-Lanta as the programme is called in France. The contestants were carrying out the first of the game show’s tasks after arriving in Cambodia when Babin suffered a series of heart attacks. He was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at hospital.

Filming has been suspended and the production team and contestants repatriated to Paris. Psychological therapists have been called to treat those taking part in the show as well as Babin’s family and girlfriend back in France.
