The controversial TV star had reportedly been offered "a big money deal" to appear on I'm a Celebrity.

The animal activist's appearance however now poses a scheduling conflict with I'm a Celebrity.

Dancing with the Stars is expected to conclude in late November - clashing with the ITV reality series.

Carole herself hopes to stay in the competition as long as possible as "it'll keep the cats forefront."

UK fans responded to the news on social media overnight, with many expressing disappointment.

The Big Cat Rescue CEO's preference for another TV show however should come as no surprise.

In an exclusive interview with the Mirror last month, Carole shared her thoughts on I'm a Celebrity.

The 59-year-old explained that she "strives towards veganism" and is a supporter of "the plant world."

She described the potential eating bushtucker trials - simply for "entertaining television" - as "gross."

Carole also questioned whether an appearance would conflict with her support of animal rights.

The Tiger King star said "no amount of money" would encourage her to "disrespect nature" in any way.

Her comments come following criticism of the show by animal activist groups in recent years.

This includes TV presenter Chris Packham who has been a vocal critic of bushtucker trials.

The wildlife expert notably questioned the "exploiting animals for entertainment" in such challenges.

And whilst animals are expected to play a role moving forward, ITV has addressed some of the criticism.

It introduced a new policy as a result of the backlash - which came into effect during the last series.

TV bosses at the time confirmed that contestants would no longer be tasked with eating live creatures.

The celebrities were instead challenged to hold live bugs in their mouths - though these weren't eaten.

I'm a Celebrity will broadcast live from Gwrych Castle later this year on ITV.
