A successor to Daniel Hartwich has been found: Jan Köppen is to become the new moderator of the jungle camp.

Jan Köppen (39) is the successor to Daniel Hartwich (43): alongside Sonja Zietlow (54) he will show “I’m a star – get me out of here!” moderate. RTL has now announced this. There will be a new season of the jungle camp in January 2023 (also on RTL+). Köppen has already taken over the moderation in several RTL formats, including “Ninja Warrior”, “Take me out” or “diving”.

“Finally jungle! I thought Aunt RTL never knocked and asked,” jokes Jan Koppen about his new job – and adds: “But seriously: I’m really looking forward to IBES, the biggest German TV campfire – and of course to my esteemed colleague Sonja and the team from ITV Studios. It’ll be mega, never freezing again in the January!”

and Sonja Zietlow adds: “Thanks to his ‘Ninja Warrior’ moderation, I’m not worried about Jan’s suitability for hanging bridges. If he can now get by with little sleep, night shifts and myself, he deserves the title ‘suitable for the jungle’. But honestly? He has Frank Buschmann also survived and jungle boss Küttner already knows what he’s doing. A great colleague, that’s going to be great!”

Hartwich announced farewell in February

Daniel Hartwich ended his moderation alongside Zietlow after the 15th season “for family reasons”, RTL announced in early February. The two had been in front of the camera for the format since 2013.

“Season 15 of ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!’ will be my last,” Hartwich said in a statement at the time. “The reason for this is my family, who will no longer be able to accompany me in the future because school is compulsory.” Thank you to all of your colleagues. It was “a pleasure and an honor” for Hartwich. But now he is looking forward to “enjoying the show as a viewer at home next year”.
