The Today Inside program will return to television next Monday with Johan Derksen and Wilfred Genee and René van der Gijp. Talpa reports this in a statement on Thursday.

The three presenters decided to stop on April 29 after a storm of commotion about a confession by Derksen that he penetrated an unconscious woman with a candle half a century ago. He later recanted his story, saying there had been no penetration.

Confusion arose on Wednesday when Derksen said in the AD that the triumvirate would return to television on Monday. His buddy Van der Gijp stated in RTL Boulevard that he knew nothing about it and Talpa also stated that he found Derksen’s statements “premature”.

Paul Römer, radio and television director of Talpa, said on Thursday morning “not to take any responsibility” for Talpa’s statements. He did not want to give a text and explanation about the situation on NPO Radio 1, where he was a guest: “Everything you say is just fuel on the fire, quotes immediately start to lead a life of their own,” said the Talpa boss. .

Marco Louwerens, TV director of Talpa, states in a short statement that the company has taken a stand against the way Derksen told his story and the way he dealt with the subject. “We know that the men occasionally walk on the edge and that is typical of the program, but this was obviously a step too far in several respects.” As far as Talpa is concerned, the case is thus closed. “Today Inside remains a program where, among other things, discussions and conversations about various themes are held publicly.”

The riot shows similarities with a similar incident in June 2020. Then many people fell over a funny comment that Derksen made about Zwarte Piet and rapper Akwasi. Derksen then also said that he no longer wanted to participate in the program. However, he let it be known in his biography that John de Mol, Talpa’s boss, kept him to his contract. Talpa Network did not want to explain the question whether this also played a role in the past two weeks.

VI is the big hit of SBS6. Veronica Inside, as the program used to be called, attracted an average of around 620,000 viewers in 2019, 2020 and 2021. Since January 2022, VI can be seen daily on SBS6 and the average number of viewing figures is between 800,000 and 900,000.

His role is temporarily taken over by Wouter Zweers, who can therefore be seen as that character for the first time from Monday. Zweers is according to RTL Boulevard until the summer cliff hanger to be seen as Julian Verduyn.

Jansen announced at the beginning of May that he had almost recovered from the accident with his e-bike. His teeth are “completely whole again,” he said in a video on Instagram. “It really feels like a victory, after two months it is now fully recovered.”

‘Teeth discomfort’

The accident, in which he fell with his head on the asphalt with “a very hard blow,” shook his life “quite a bit,” he wrote in the video. “A broken jaw, chin, hand and a lot of tooth discomfort made me realize how vulnerable we are.”

Jansen returned in 2019 after a twenty-year absence in GTST† He previously played the character between 1996 and 1999.

Johan Derksen offers no apologies for the ‘candle story’ that he previously told Today Inside. In the first broadcast since the program went off the air, Derksen said that he will not say “sorry”, but that it was not his intention to hurt “people who have been really affected by sexual violence”.

In the earlier broadcast of the program, Derksen said that half a century earlier he had penetrated a drunk and unconscious woman with a candle. In the broadcast he called it a “youth sin”. He later weakened his story, saying that there had been no penetration. Derksen, Wilfred Genee and René van der Gijp decided to stop the program after a few days of great commotion.

According to Derksen, people at talk show tables have demanded that he apologize. However, the presenter stated that he has “already distanced himself” from his story in the broadcast. He held up his middle finger at the camera, a gesture addressed to “all the people on talk shows saying” that he should apologize.

Derksen also said in the broadcast that he spoke with State Secretary Gunay Uslu of Culture and Media about the ‘candle incident’ and the commotion about it. It was “a very pleasant conversation”, according to Derksen. “Mrs. Uslu has stolen my heart,” he said. “We have agreed, we will not blow the whistle on the conversation.”

The analyst said he had never been as busy as after the offending broadcast. The day before the conversation with Uslu, he made an appointment with Talpa boss John de Mol and he also had a conversation with the vice squad in Groningen, according to Derksen. There he was told that the case is “barred”. Finally, he said about the ongoing investigation that an official report has been drawn up. “They have heard my story”, and now it is decided what to do with it.

A group of demonstrators gathered on Monday evening in front of the studio where Today Inside is being recorded, at the media park in Hilversum. They protested the return of the program to television. People carried signs and banners with texts such as ‘Rape culture inside’, ‘No platform for rape culture’, ‘Put that candle in your own ass’ and ‘No buhne for racism sexism’.
