The small screen industry is abuzz with speculation about how the third local incarnation of the franchise might look and feel when it airs on Channel 7 in the second half of 2020. When it does, there will no doubt be plenty of memorable and controversial moments from the format that gave us Sara-Marie’s bum dance, Merlin’s refugee protest and the “turkey slap”.
