While his step-son Lucas Cordalis made himself unpopular with many viewers in the jungle camp, Peter Klein enjoyed himself at the Versace Hotel. If you believe his wife Iris Klein, the trained painter and varnisher was dating Djamila Rowe's companion Yvonne Woelke there. Footage from the airport seems to confirm this. On Wednesday, Iris Klein had to be treated by an emergency doctor. Since then, there has been radio silence on their social media accounts – extremely atypical.
Klein is the mother of reality TV actress Daniela Katzenberger and former jungle queen Jenny Frankhauser. Just like her daughters, Iris Klein has also been part of various television programs for several years. So she already took part in "Big Brother" and moved to the jungle camp herself in 2013. There, the former owner of a pancake restaurant attracted particular attention with her gossip. With Olivia Jones by her side, she gradually lashed out at her campmates. "We don't gossip, we just state," was her motto at the time.
Although she gambled away some viewer sympathy with her appearance in the camp, "I'm a star - get me out of here!" not the end of Klein's TV career. After the jungle camp, she appeared on the Vox shows "The Perfect Celebrity Dinner", "Shopping Queen" and "Celebrity Shopping Queen". Together with her daughter Daniela Katzenberger, Klein was and is regularly in front of cameras for other Vox productions. "Up and away - my foreign diary", "Goodbye Germany" and "Daniela Katzenberger - naturally blonde" are just three examples from the past.
Klein also discussed her marriage quite regularly on television. In 2020, she and husband Peter took part in the RTL program "Das Sommerhaus der Stars", in which well-known celebrity couples have to live together in one house and win games. Which brings us to Peter Klein.
Iris Klein met the trained painter and varnisher when she already had three children. The two have now been married for 17 years, and now the marriage is hanging by a thread. Just like his wife and stepchildren, Peter Klein found his way onto German television early on. In 2011 he tried his hand at the talent show "X Factor" and sang the Sunrise Avenue song "Hollywood Hills". There was no success.
In addition to appearances in Daniela Katzenberger's programs, "Das Sommerhaus der Stars" was Peter Klein's greatest success in terms of TV career. The Kleins said goodbye to their hometown Ludwigshafen in 2019 and moved to Mallorca.
Let's come to the third person in the love triangle: Yvonne Woelke. Peter Klein is said to have cheated on his wife with her. Woelke traveled to Australia to accompany the jungle queen, Djamila Rowe, and stayed at the Versace Hotel during filming, just like Klein.
In 1999 she was elected "Miss Germany". A "door opener", as she reveals on her website. After training as an actor, she found her way into the German TV business - often as an advertising face or with small roles.
Ex-jungle camp resident Micaela Schäfer is her best friend, she defended Woelke after the first reports of an alleged affair. "Of course Yvonne didn't do anything with Peter, I spoke to her, I believe her too, Yvonne is my best friend and it's not without reason that she's my best and almost only friend," she told news.de.
Apparently, Woelke is also married. In an interview with RTL, she said that her husband was anything but pleased with the reporting. "Even my husband has his doubts now, too. He trusted me all the time until the last minute," she said. Peter Klein allegedly got to know Woelke better last year. At that time she traveled to South Africa as an accompaniment to jungle camp participant Janina Youssefian. Klein had traveled with Cordalis, who, however, could not move into the camp due to a corona infection. Iris Klein recently claimed that Woelke and her husband had been in contact for a year.
After all the headlines about the jungle companions, you could easily forget who even fought for the crown in the camp.
