TV3 host Duncan Garner has been updating followers on social media on a different kind of story, after he became trapped in an elevator at work.

The host appeared to get stuck at around 7:40pm yesterday and has sent off several updates since.

"Stuck in the lift at TV3 between levels 3 and 4 - hopefully help on the way. Otis line busy."

About an hour later, the lift company was able to get him out.
