But that’s exactly what happened to Crimewatch presenter Jason Mohammad, when they showed the mugshot of thug Viktor Lakatos, who was jailed for 18 years for for a savage knuckle-duster attack on a frail pensioner.

The photo was being shown after police were able to catch Lakatos as a result of Crimewatch asking viewers for help.

Naturally, Twitter wasn’t about to let this one slide, and was quick to point out the awkward comparisons to Mohammad.

Eventually, poor Mohammahad took to Twitter to acknowledge the #awkwardmoment.

Just another day in the world of journalism.
