Host Jason Mohammad was giving viewers a routine update when he came on to the story of Viktor Lakatos. Following an appeal on Crimewatch, Lakatos was imprisoned after being convicted of attacking an elderly man.

As is customary on Crimewatch, a mugshot of the man in question appeared on the screen behind Mohammed. And from that moment on, there only seemed to be one thing on everyone's mind.

Oh dear.

Still, at least Mohammad had a sense of humor about the whole thing.

Luckily, there were no shortage of fans happy to stick up for him.
