The awkward moment the Crimewatch presenter looks a lot like mugshot of criminal

Christopher Hooten

One mugshot in particular caught UK Crimewatch viewers’ attention on Monday night as hosts Jason Mohammad and Sophie Raworth ran through old cases, thanks to the similarity between presenter and perp.

Cornish police officer Alice Nicholas was first to spot it, taking a screen grab and posting it on Twitter. Plenty more rained in.

The similarity was picked up on so many times that Mohammad himself had to acknowledge it, writing: “Thanks for the tweets. And yes, I've seen the picture #Crimewatch”.

Fortunately the suspect, Victor Lakatos, has already been jailed for 18 years for assault, so Mohammad was at least spared the embarrassment of phone calls into Crimewatch reporting him.
