At the ZDF charity gala »A Heart for Children«, the still-married couple Oliver and Amira Pocher apparently made a joint appearance somewhat involuntarily. In the evening, both had walked separately on the red carpet of the fundraising campaign of »Bild« and ZDF. Oliver Pocher entered the stage in Berlin at the beginning of the show with ex-wife Alessandra Meyer-Wölden, Amira Pocher, on the other hand, came on stage with the »Let's Dance« winner and daughter of ex-tennis pro Boris Becker, Anna Ermakova. The Pochers then sat down in different rows at the donation telephone.

Presenter Johannes B. Kerner, however, pulled the two of them in front of the camera by his hands on the right and left and asked them to take turns reading out the donation hotline of "A Heart for Children": he the area code 01802, she the number 10 10 10. The Pochers, who lived separately, complied with the request, somewhat surprised and confused. However, the comedian performed the whole number right away. Amira quipped, "That was clear." As he left, Oliver Pocher said, somewhat puzzled: "That's it? Can we marry again now, or what?"

Celebrities from the worlds of politics, show, sports, business and society met in Berlin for the "A Heart for Children" gala. Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) was also expected to attend the benefit show of the »Bild« aid organization broadcast by ZDF. Among others, Finance Minister Christian Lindner (FDP) and his wife Franca Lehfeldt, Bavaria's Prime Minister Markus Söder and his daughter Gloria-Sophie Burkandt, musician Katja Krasavice, tennis star Alexander Zverev and presenter Sophia Thomalla appeared on the red carpet.

After the separation of the Pochers, the comedian had also announced an end to the joint podcast »Die Pochers«. But shortly afterwards he announced that he would continue the podcast after all - with ex-wife and now fundraising gala accompaniment Meyer-Wölden. The two dated from 2009 to 2013 and were also married and have three children together.
