Carole Baskin has denied rumours she’s set to appear on the upcoming series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

The Big Cat Rescue CEO slammed the ITV series, and said no amount of money will ever persuade her to sign up for the show.

Speaking to Mirror Online, Carole said: “The show has been criticized by animal lovers for the consumption of live creatures, and no amount of money would make me want to be part of something that disrespects nature that way.”

“I strive towards veganism so there is nothing so gross in the plant world, for me to be forced to eat on camera, as to make for entertaining television.”

Back in June, The Sun reported that Carole had been offered a big money deal to take part in this year’s series.

A TV source said: “Jungle producers have made a formal approach and hope she will do it.”

The 59-year-old rose to fame in Netflix’s Tiger King series earlier this year, as Joe Exotic’s arch nemesis.

The eccentric zoo owner was sentenced to 22-years in prison last year, after he was convicted of 17 federal charges – including animal abuse, and plotting to murder Carole.
