“Ha! I am ok with these convos! Less keen on the ones that say you’re a younger version… and still less the ones that don’t mention me…” says Louis.

Support for Farrier’s new show 'Dark Tourist' has been plentiful too.

“I've just finished the show on Netflix, you're great and I loved it! Greetings from an Italian fan.”

“I think you are a great version of yourself. You’re the lovechild of Louis Theroux and Karl Pilkington I’d say,” says one fan.

“I thought you and the entire season was great. People suck,” says another.

“If it makes you feel better, I don’t know who that guy is so in my mind he’s a shitty version of you!”
