Former Newstalk ZB host Mark Dye has had an eventful start to his new career as a host on TVNZ's Heartbreak Island.
In a series of videos posted to his Instagram account, he sends the call out for help as he's locked inside a bathroom.
"Currently stuck in a f***ing toilet," he announces on his story.
"Who builds a door and doesn't put door handles on both sides?"
Dye later posted on his Facebook page that he went to the gym and then became stuck inside the bathroom for "quite some time".
In one of the clips he is seen yelling for help, with no reply.
Later a man is seen opening the door from the outside and Dye celebrates his release.
The presenter is currently in an undisclosed location for TVNZ's new reality series Heartbreak Island. Co-host Matilda Rice has also been keeping the location a secret with her absence of social media posts.
Heartbreak Island is due on our screens later this year.
