“Merlin is giving Jeff Goldblum vibes,” a third person chimed in.

In 2016, Luck revealed that a producer told him afterward that the show “would have supported” his bold political stunt, but only if he had told them beforehand.

He said news.com.au: ‘They got the best ratings of the season and PR weeks. On the other hand, if they had lost control, which is every producer’s worst nightmare.’

Merlin continued: ‘I remember the executive producer getting exasperated in the green room afterwards. He was almost shouting, “You should have told us…we could have worked with you on this…we would have supported you.”

But Merlin, who is now married with two children and lives in Sydney, said he would not have been interested in co-operating with television staff as it would undermine his message.

Merlin staged the now infamous protest during his exit interview with presenter Gretel Killeen in June 2004, on the fourth series of Big Brother Australia.

He walked onto the studio stage and unexpectedly put black tape over his mouth and held up a sign that said: ‘Free the refugees’ (sic).

Merlin didn’t answer any of Gretel’s questions and his legs were visibly shaking as the crowd booed and applauded in the background.
