Presenter Wilfred Genee is temporarily unseen in The Oranjesummer and has been faced with sad family circumstances, colleague Johan Derksen unveiled Monday night. Genees father died after his mother fell down the stairs.
Earlier on Monday, Father Genees death was already confirmed. “The family is expressly asking for privacy during this difficult period,” a Talpa spokesperson said. Derksen shared additional details during the Monday evening broadcast of De Oranjesummer. Genees mother had fallen unconscious after a fall down the stairs. Her partner then thought she had died, had a myocardial infarction and died herself.
“I think Wilfred should be left alone,” says Derksen. Hélène Hendriks has taken the site of Genee for the time being. The daily broadcasts of De Oranjezomer are still on display until this week. After that, the regular season of Veronica Inside will start again.
