    Most of them weren’t born when Louis Theroux first made his name as the BBC journalist who hunted for interviews with Michael Jackson, spent weird weekends with Neo-Nazis and batted off the advances of Christine Hamilton, but Gen Z-ers have nevertheless fallen head-over-heels for the broadcaster who loves an uncomfortable silence.

    The Louis Theroux renaissance could be down in part to Netflix, where the full back catalogue of Theroux’s finest and most spectacularly awkward moments is available on demand for a whole new generation. It could be down to Theroux’s particularly no-f**ks-given line of questioning appealing to a woke generation of teens. Or it could just be because Louis Theroux is timeless.

    Whatever the reason, the love is strong. And now there’s a whole burst of Theroux merchandise to prove it.
