He was an actor, presenter and comedian. But especially his presentation of the jungle camp next to Sonja Zichlow gave Dirk Bach a cult status until he died suddenly in 2012 at the age of 51. A good friend still struggles with it: Hella von Sinnen.
Ten years after the death of her best friend Dirk Bach, comedian Hella pours her heart out of her senses. She is still not over the loss, she made clear in an interview with the magazine “Bunte”.
She is now 63 years old and has spent 30 years of her life with Bach, so von Sinnen, whose real name is Hella Kemper. “We lived together, we worked together. The world has been so shit since he left. I can’t tell you how much I miss this man,” she explains.
In fact, she doesn’t want to grieve, but oppress, get out of her mind and describe herself in this context as the “queen of repression”. She finds comfort in the contact with her ex-partner Cornelia Scheel: “We still love each other as much as we used to. Conny has a new wonderful wife and a funny dog. We do a lot together and she is still my manager.”
New book “Dear Dicki”
Dirk Bach was found dead in a hotel room in Berlin on October 1, 2012. The suspected cause of death was heart failure, after Bach had previously had heart problems. The actor, presenter and comedian was 51 years old.
On the approaching tenth anniversary of his death, a new book about Bach will be published. Stars and companions remember him in it, especially Hella von Sinnen. School friends and costume designers, among others, wrote personal letters to Bach, supplemented with photos from his life. “Dear Dicki” will be available from Tuesday. The book is published by Hella von Sinnen and Cornelia Scheel.
The comedian became known in the 90s for his “Dirk Bach Show”, and was also seen in the series “Lukas” and “The Little Monk”. The jungle camp eventually helped him achieve his cult status as a moderator. Bach presented the format “I’m a Celebrity – Get Me Out of Here!” from 2004 to 2012 alongside Sonja Zichlow.
