Final jungle-off for Martin Semmelrogge: The actor ("Das Boot") will no longer be in the show "I'm a star – get me out of here!" get in, as RTL announced on Monday evening. "Unfortunately, Martin didn't make it to Australia," the broadcaster wrote on Facebook. "He has just landed back in Germany and is on his way to Mallorca."
According to RTL, the 67-year-old who was originally announced as a candidate was not allowed to enter Australia because the authorities did not issue him a visa. Semmelrogge is "still stuck in Doha," said moderator Jan Köppen in the first episode of the show on Friday evening, adding: "Maybe one or two previous convictions too many." Semmelrogge has had trouble with the judiciary several times in the past. The 55-year-old Djamila Rowe took his place in the RTL cult show.
