He's already known to New Zealand television audiences thanks to his docile role as a children's presenter on Play School.

But actor Jay Laga'aia has flipped the table on his easygoing persona, blasting his I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! camp mates for acting like kids during an explosive rant, reports The Daily Mail.

Laga'aia is appearing in the latest season of the Australian reality show, which sees celebrities living together under tough conditions while being filmed.

But the normally calm and collected 53-year-old lost his cool after his camp mates were slow to do their chores after dinner.

Laga'aia ranted that he had never actually wanted to be in a leadership position on the show, accusing his camp mates of being immature.

"As camp leader it is a position that I did not want but was given to me - I did not come to this jungle to hang out with children," he yelled. "I already have children, you are adults!"
