There were enough diapers, he thinks. After his baby break, Massimo Sinató is back on the dance floor.

The list of candidates also includes Instagrammer Cheyenne Ochsenknecht, actor Timur Ülker (“Gute Zeiten, Schlechte Zeiten”) and actress and presenter Sarah Mangione, as the television station has already announced.

The introductory show on February 18 (8:15 p.m.), which begins the new season, will decide which dance couples will be formed from celebrities and professionals.
