On Christmas Day “Das Tromshif” traveled to Scandinavia on ZDF. However, first, another episode of the series is scheduled to air on December 26, as it is now. “t-online.de“Report. Accordingly, “The Dream Ship: Maldives” was actually on the plan. Due to the involvement of comedian Luke Mogridge in this episode, the broadcaster reportedly decided to put the episode in the back for now.
Last year, the 32-year-old comedian was accused by his ex-girlfriend. However, after a complaint, the public prosecutor’s office did not establish sufficient suspicion and stopped proceedings. In September, several women reported on “Spiegel” about Mogridge’s misconductAs a result, TV shows were canceled on the 1st.
Mockridge did not deny the “Spiegel” statement at the time, but did not confirm anything. Her media lawyers said the women’s descriptions of our client’s privacy were “facts told without exception”. It is therefore not possible to comment on personal allegations.
ZDF postpones “Traumschiff” with Mogridge
“The Dream Ship: The Maldives” starring McGridge as a chef, the episode was filmed in January 2021. According to previous plans, the Sweden episode that aired instead should not be shown until Easter 2022, but was brought forward. According to D-Online, ZDF has already decided to take this step in October 2021. The broadcaster’s statement says:
“As the public debate on Luke Mogridge took place in the fall of 2021, the ZDF adjourned the ‘The Dream Ship – Maldives’ episode for the benefit of all concerned.”

In “Das Traumschiff – Schweden”, Bülent Ceylan also appeared as a comedian in the role of a chef, but this only seems to be a coincidence. ZDF emphasizes: “It is true that both Luke Mogridge and Bülent Ceylan have the function of a chef in the characters they portray. Otherwise there is no similarity between these two episode stories.“
The timing of the airing of “Dream Ship” is unclear
It is not clear when the episode with Mokridge will run on ZDF. The comment so far is that “the episode is over and will air later”. However, the broadcaster points out that the episode “will only air in the Christmas context” as the stories of the Maldives trip also revolve around Christmas.
After Jan Hofer, Pinar Atalay and Linda Zervakis, another public broadcaster had to deal with the departure of a keynote speaker: on Thursday evening, Claus Kleber last hosted the “Heat-Journal” on ZDF. In February 2003, he began as the show’s main host, so he’s been presenting it for almost 19 years.
