A third user admitted: “My weird crush on this man is now out of control” and a fourth viewer proclaimed: “Had to pause and rewind and share this @louistheroux Mr Universe moment.”

Louis then went on to discuss his time with the controversial Joe Exotic (real name Joseph Schreibvogelaka) Tiger King.

Joe was heavily featured during Louis’ documentary on exotic animals being kept by private owners in the US back in 2011.

Tiger King has since become a household name after the mega hit Netflix series of the same name was released during lockdown.

Louis said: “I’m almost slightly embarrassed that I didn’t make more of it at the time.

“It was a program called America’s Most Dangerous Pets.

“I spent probably over three separate trips – the best part of maybe a week with Joe Exotic.

“Back then he had two partners…and I got to know him. Even then he would talk a lot about Carole Baskin.”

Joe is currently incarcerated in the US. Meanwhile Carole has just announced she shall compete in this year’s Dancing with the Stars in the US.
