ANDY Warhol once wrote that everyone would be famous for 15 minutes, but deranged protester Carlos Diaz Fernandez, has become notorious for appearing uninvited on Spanish TV shows.

The 39-year-old stormed the sets of three live television shows at Telecinco, La Sexta and TVE in just one week, claiming that the CIA was running a clandestine assassination campaign to destabilise the Spanish government.

It is not the first time that Fernandez has made a nuisance of himself. Six month ago he appeared naked in front of King Juan Carlos at a hospital opening.

He has also made hoax bomb threats at the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela , Barcelona’s Sagrada Familia, the Grand Mosque of Cordoba and the Alhambra in Granada.

He is now facing a six month jail sentence for being a public nuisance.
