During Monday night’s gripping episode of TV show Crimewatch, the typically serious show managed to raise a few laughs.
Why, you ask? Because they showed a picture of the criminal, right next to a very similar looking presenter. Awks.
The suspect in question, Victor Lakatos – wanted for a brutal assault on a pensioner – has been caught since his crime was first featured on the show, and jailed for 18 years. Presenters Jason Mohammad and Sophie Raworth were running through the ‘updates’ on previous cases that had been solved.
Jason should just be glad, then, that it wasn’t an ongoing case….

Is it just me or does the Crimewatch presenter look like the criminal he’s asking the public to look out for? 😳😳😂 pic.twitter.com/z75pdL4P3Y

The presenter himself has spoken out about the episode:
Thanks for the tweets. And yes, I’ve seen the picture #Crimewatch

We’re not trying to say that Jason is the criminal, but hiding in plain sight would be genius…
