Carole Baskin has revealed she is filming a pilot for ITV about her work as a big cat activist

Carole Baskin is excited to bring "bad guys to justice" in a new ITV show.

The 'Tiger King' star has revealed she is returning to TV after filming a pilot for the broadcaster that will focus on her work as a big cat activist.

Speaking to Radio 1’s Rickie, Melvin and Charlie she said: "We are working on an ITV pilot and I‘m very excited about that.

"It will be covering the kind of work we’ve always done which is going after the bad guys and bringing them to justice so I’m really excited about that right now."

Carole became a household name thanks to the Netflix documentary series – which covered her feud with zoo owner Joe Exotic, who was later imprisoned on two counts of attempted murder for hire for a plot to kill the Big Cat Rescue CEO – but she's rejected the chance to take part in a second series of the show as she felt it didn't focus on the right topics.

However, Carole insisted she doesn't regret filming the first season as she was able to get people to pay attention to animal rights.

Asked if she regretted doing the show, she told the trio: "For me, because of the fact that finally people are understanding the situation with big cats, our federal bill will pass as a result of people understanding that there is all of this abuse going on, it was worth all of the attacks on me personally.

"But if you think about it from my husband’s point, it was much harder for him and my daughter who felt they had to protect me from all of these vicious people and for me it’s like, I don't care, they don't know me. So I’m happy about having done it if it gets that end result."
