Merrick confirmed that the intervention with Firass would air on Tuesday, but the star refused to leave.
‘There is no real room for somebody to not play the team game, you need to look after people… Firass is very selfish, he is very self involved and that started to effect the group,’ the comedian explained.
Merrick said after a mutual consensus by the remaining recruits on the show, they expressed their fury over Firass to the DS.
‘As duty recruit I had to go, everyone wanted to go and approach the DS to chat about Firass and we had an open chat with him and he was better after that,’ he said.

Meanwhile on Nova’s Fitzy and Wippa, Merrick explained how the entire cast were in complete disbelief when Firass went missing during the team task.
‘We literally stopped and went “no, this is a setup!” The group had decided we needed to talk to DS about Firass and the fact that we thought he was putting us all in jeopardy,’ he explained.
Merrick said it was a ‘full on’ and ‘confronting’ ultimatum put to Firass when they asked for him to be remove from the course.
