Thick notebook in hand, he delved into the evolving issue while standing outside the Houses of Parliament at Westminster in London.

At the end of the live cross, Breakfast host Hayley Holt asked Faitaua how he's settling in, and if he'd seen much of London. Faitaua said he and his family were still very much settling in.

However, in true-tourist-fashion, he got the cameraman to pan up at the Palace of Westminster.

"This was built in 1245 and is one of the most important gothic buildings and it was Henry III who was involved. I mean look at that, isn't it just incredible."

Faitua's stint in Europe has started after Joy Reid signed off on Friday.
