PREVIEW: Britain's Tiger Kings with Ross Kemp, ITV
This new two-part documentary series features Ross Kemp on the trail of Britain's very own tiger and lion kings - those who keep dangerous wild animals.
The new series features the award-winning documentary maker as reporter, going on a journey to discover why anyone would want to keep a 250kg feline, and asking whether it is in the best interests of the animal to do so.
It's understood there are about 4,000 animals including lions, tigers, bears, crocodiles and giant snakes in private hands in the country.
In the first programme, filmed in line with Covid rules, Ross meets a man who keeps two lions in his back garden, and discovers that the rescued big cats have caused fierce division in the village where they are kept, with some neighbours expressing concern about the wellbeing of the big cats.
