The Sun recently revealed that I’m a Celeb bosses had offered the Tiger King star a big money deal to take part in this year’s series.

They were desperate to have one of the stars of Netflix’s lockdown hit appear on the series and spill the beans on the zoo operator, Joe Exotic.

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

Carol has been the subject of conspiracy theories over the disappearance of her second husband Don Lewis — who Joe has accused her of killing.

Eccentric Joe is now in jail serving a 22-year term for a plot to kill Carole — CEO of Big Cat Rescue.

Streaming giant Netflix said 64million households globally have watched the documentary series since it came out in March.

It follows big cat owners, breeders and conservationists in the US — with a focus on the feud between Joe and Carole.

However, it was revealed today that the Netflix star has signed up to take part in the US version of Strictly Come Dancing.

Ant and Dec excitedly spoke about the upcoming series, which is being filmed in Wales instead of Australia this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

“It’s a show that we really look forward to, to go out and spend five weeks in Aus….oh,” joked Dec.

“We love I’m A Celebrity.

“The cast changes every year, so it’s always a different vibe – you never know what’s going to happen.
