ABC News Breakfast host Tony Armstrong has been nominated for a Gold Logie.

And on Tuesday, the popular presenter, 34, revealed the one thing he doesn’t like about being up for the prestigious gong after returning to the show following a 11-week break.

He told viewers he did not like smiling in photos used to advertise voting.

Co-host Michael Rowland teased Armstrong after sharing a promotional photo of the hunky star frowning.

‘How sizzling is that [photo],’ Rowland joked, adding: ‘When they asked you to pose for that, what did they say to you? What sort of look were they after?’
