The 'Baywatch' beauty - who is an active animal rights campaigner - has pleaded with Theresa May to stop "embarrassingly archaic" circus animal acts being allowed to perform, insisting they should have "no place" in modern Britain.

In a letter written on behalf of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), Pamela wrote: "One of the things that I love the most about the UK is its strong reputation as a nation that opposes cruelty to animals.

"That's why my mouth dropped when I learned that Britain still has not banned wild animals from circuses.

"With all due respect, Brexit is complicated, but kissing circus animal acts goodbye is easy as pie.

"Animal acts are embarrassingly archaic and have no place in modern Britain - or anywhere else."

The 49-year-old actress is keen to meet up with the Prime Minister to discuss the issue face-to-face.

She added: "I'm currently in the UK and would welcome the chance to meet with you about this issue."

Several other stars, including Martin Freeman and Michael Sheen, have also pleaded with the government to prohibit wild animal circus acts.

This comes after Pamela - who has two sons, Brandon, 20, and 18-year-old Dylan from her marriage to Tommy Lee - joined the fight against fish farming, urging people to choose wild salmon over farmed products.

She said: "The bottom line is that fish farms in the oceans are polluting the oceans. Please take this into your own hands and simply say no to farmed salmon.

"I learned about the fish farms and how devastating they are.

"Even my mother said, 'By eating farmed salmon, aren't I helping wild salmon?' That's a misconception."
