This comes after a well-placed source told Daily Mail Australia back in September that the footy star-turned-senior coach, 49, was seen not far from the set at the time. 

An eyewitness said they saw the champion midfielder taking part in a publicity photo shoot at the Mantra on Salt Beach Kingscliff resort in northern NSW, near the Murwillumbah set.

Nathan, who stepped down as Collingwood coach in June, was seen wearing khaki clothes and an Akubra hat as he was escorted by an I’m a Celebrity crew member.

In September, Daily Mail Australia also revealed Beau Ryan would be taking part on the upcoming season with ‘an AFL legend’ and a ‘a controversial reality star’.

Despite the network’s best efforts to secure top local talent, a source told Daily Mail Australia viewers will likely be ‘disappointed’ by the line-up.

‘They’re all scraps,’ they said. ‘It was a bunch of people I had never seen in my life.’

Filming has already wrapped on the new season, which is set to air in January with viewers choosing the winner in a live finale.

He is currently dating cosmetic nurse Alex Pike. 

Their relationship has also made headlines after he announced his split from his wife of 18 years, Tania Minnici, last December.
