Australian rules football great Nathan Buckley is set to appear on the new season of Channel 10’s I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

The AFL player-turned-senior coach, 49, is the latest star tipped to be heading into the jungle, according to a well-placed source.

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.

He was joined by former NRL player Beau Ryan and other contestants.

Nathan was last pictured in Melbourne in August while on a stroll with his girlfriend, cosmetic nurse Alex Pike.

Nathan will no doubt bring plenty of eyeballs to the Channel 10 reality show after he stepped down as Magpies coach.

His relationship with Alex, 44, has also made headlines after he announced his split from his wife of 18 years, Tania Minnici, last December. 

It comes just days after Daily Mail Australia revealed Beau Ryan would be joined by ‘an AFL legend’ and ‘a controversial reality star’ on the upcoming season.

But 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. 

It comes after a Covid-infected crew member on I’m a Celebrity was responsible for the snap lockdown in the Byron, Tweed and Kempsey Shires. 

Will Ines be joining? It comes just days after a production source claimed Beau would be joined by  'an AFL legend' and 'a very controversial reality star from Married At First Sight'
