Tiger King is one of the most bizarre TV shows we've ever seen but we were even more stunned when we spotted Celebrity Big Brother star Chantelle Houghton in the series. Yes, Chantelle Houghton. What a throwback.

WhileJoe Exotic{ =nofollow}- aka the Tiger King - revealed that PETA (People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals) had targeted him because he owned lions, tigers and other wild animals, the documentary went on to show Chantelle Houghton posing for the animal rights organisation.

In the short clip, taken in 2011, Chantelle was wearing her underwear and was covered in body paint to appear as a tiger.

At the time she was supporting the organisation campaign to ban wild animals in circuses and although the Netflix show isn't about circuses, it does focus on privately owned zoos in America.

Chantelle first found fame in 2006 when she entered the CBB house, despite being a normal civilian undercover. After passing a few tests she managed to stay on the reality show and went on to win it.

During her time in the house she fell for Ordinary Boys frontman Samuel Preston and the pair went on to get married seven months later. Unfortunately it wasn't to last and they later split. Fast forward 14 years and the pair reunited and admitted they're actually good friends.
