Channel 10 has dropped yet another trailer hinting that AFL great Nathan Buckley will appear on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! next year.

New clues! Channel 10 has dropped yet another trailer hinting that AFL great Nathan Buckley, 49,  (pictured) will appear on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! next year 

A red football suddenly appears on-screen, emblazoned with the text: ‘Premiership player’. 

‘He’s played in premierships, but it’s his off-field work that’s really kicking goals.’ the narrator continues against footage of a man kicking a football. 

These clues can easily be applied to Nathan, who served as a player and coach for the Collingwood Magpies prior to his retirement in June.

Nathan played in plenty of premierships, despite never winning one, and is considered one of Collingwood’s most beloved footballers. 

Just as the trailer suggests, Nathan’s personal life has also been making headlines thanks to his romance with glamorous cosmetic nurse Alex Pike. 

Alex and Nathan’s relationship emerged just weeks after the champion midfielder announced his split from his wife of 18 years, Tania Minnici, last December

It comes after a well-placed source told Daily Mail Australia in September that Nathan had been seen not far from the set of I’m A Celebrity. 

At the time, an eyewitness said they’d seen 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.

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