Colchester Zoo's baby tiger cubs are set to feature on a TV show next week.

Camera crews have been at the zoo for Channel 5’s Big Week at the Zoo.

The three cubs were born back in June and have been named Pasha, Misha and Tatana.

All of the names originate from Russia as the Amur tiger is native to the far-eastern stretches of the country.

In a post Colchester Zoo said: "Channel 5’s Big Week at the Zoo is returning and features four of Colchester Zoo’s latest arrivals, our aardvark and three tiger cubs.

"Tune in at 8pm from Monday 19 to Friday August 23 for a full week of coverage from zoos across the country!"

Last year the zoo also featured on the show.
