Tiger King's Carole Baskin revealed as a contestant on Dancing with the Stars - how to watch the highlights
Dancing with the Stars has announced its line-up for this year's upcoming season, with Tiger King's Carole Baskin name on the list of contestants.
The full list of celebrities to put on their dancing shoes and step onto the televised dancefloor later in the year, was confirmed on Good Morning America on September 2.
Who else will be starring in the show?
The list also includes names such as rapper Nelly, Backstreet Boys star AJ McLean, Catfish TV presenter Nev Schulman, Desperate Housewives and John Tucker Must Die actor Jesse Metcalfe, and Cheer star Monica Aldama.
Last month, Baskin was rumoured to be on the line-up for this year's I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, scheduled to take place in Gwrych Castle in North Wales this year.
However the reality TV star and animal rights activist quickly rebutted the rumours, criticising the show for its use of live insects in bush tucker trials.
She said "The show has been criticised 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".
How can I watch the show in the UK?
While many in the UK enjoyed watching Tiger King on Netflix during the start of lockdown, sadly we won’t be able to watch the CEO of Big Cat Rescue compete on Dancing with the Stars via the streaming service.
When someone from outside of America tries to watch the show on the ABC website, they will be faced with a message informing them that they are not allowed to stream the show due to their location.
However, you can watch the highlights on the Dancing with the Stars YouTube channel for free.
