The storm Filomena has caused Madrid to collapse, as it has prevented the transfer by roads due to the large accumulation of snow. Precisely for that reason, María Patiño has been unable to reach the Mediaset facilities and, therefore, has had to present ‘Socialité’ from home Saturday, January 9. On the set was Giovanna González, who was co-presenting with Patiño, who was on the sofa at home, very well accompanied by her dog and warm with a hat and a large sweater.
The presenter explained that she did not dare to get to Telecinco by metro because she was scared when she went out to the street because of the thick layer of snow. In fact, he has shown a video of his street, recorded by his partner, to show how the journalist could barely walk. Patiño has also shared with the viewers of ‘Socialité’ the situation in which his terrace is located, which is full of snow, at about his knees, and has confessed that he is concerned it will turn to ice and the building will be damaged by the weight.
