Geneva, March 3 (DPA) Boris Becker chose a popular German game show to announce another go at marriage, saying he is back with his one-time girlfriend Lilly Kerssenberg, and would marry the 32-year-old Dutch model in June.
The shocker came in front of 9.7 million on the show “Wetten Dass…?,” where the high-profile pair were guests. Also seated on the sofa was Hollywood star Jennifer Anniston.

It’s been up and down for the love life of three-time Wimbledon winner Becker, who only split a few months ago with his last love Sandy Meyer-Woelden, the 20-something daughter of his late manager.

But Becker said that Lilly is the one: “Last summer I went a bit off track but she took me back,” the said of his fling. “Now I don’t want to let her go,”

The German gossip press is already having a field day with the announcement as Becker returns to the woman who bears more than a passing resemblance to ex-wife Barbara Feltus, the mother of his two sons.

The wedding will be held in the Swiss resort of St. Moritz, several hours south of Becker’s tax-enclave home of Zug.
