Were you one of those who cried salty tears when Mads Steffensen stopped at ‘Kender du type?’ and left his dear friend Flemming Møldrup with some others?
Then there is good news. The couple is returning to the screen, Mads Steffensen revealed on the red carpet for this year’s TV Awards.
“We are going to make a program that revolves around friendship,” says the TV and podcast host.
He can currently be heard in the ‘Mads & A team’ on Podimo, as a speaker on ‘Broen’ on Amazon Prime and will soon be seen as a quiz host on ‘Alle mod alle’ on Kanal 5. With the new friendship program, he can also be seen on TV 2.

“Flemming and I are really good friends, and we want to be even better and make sure to keep it fresh. Because I think many friendships fade away,’ says the TV host and explains that the program will deal with how to continue to develop and maintain friendships.
“So hopefully people will see it and think: ‘I really want to call my good, old friend and see how we can get better.'”
In 2020, Mads Steffensen could announce that after 17 years he quit DR to continue his dilemma podcast on the Podimo podcast service under the name ‘Mads and the A-team’.
At the same time, he stopped as host of ‘Kender du type?’ after 170 episodes – several of them with lifestyle expert Flemming Møldrup, who over time developed from colleague to close friend.
Mads Steffensen and Flemming Møldrup first met in 2015, when the latter became a lifestyle expert in ‘Kender du typen?’, and quite quickly they developed a friendship that continues to this day.

So close that in 2022 the partner made the podcast ‘Between Friends’ together. However, the upcoming TV 2 program will be their first own joint program since ‘Kender du typev?’.
First, however, Mads Steffensen has to make ‘Alle mod alle’ with Ibi Støving – a title that is very close to ‘Alle mod 1’, which he hosted for four seasons on DR1 together with Joakim Ingversen.
“I have a requirement to only make programs called something with ‘All courage'”, he says with a twinkle in his eye, before becoming serious:
“When we made the intros for the programmes, I was terribly afraid that I would have to say ‘All against 1′. It hasn’t happened yet, but it’s in the back of my mind every time.’
