He also had a very particular diet on game day.

'Well, one of them when I was playing for Collingwood, was to have a plain ham sandwich,' he revealed.

The secrets of Buckley's success come after he collapsed during a dramatic scene on Thursday's episode of I'm A Celebrity

The former Australian rules football coach was walking through the jungle with his campmates when he suddenly dropped to the ground. 

'Guys! Guys! Guys! Guys! Guys! Can we please get a medic? Oh, my God. Oh, my God. He's just fainted. Oh, my God,' screamed a hysterical Maria Thattil.

With Nathan unconscious on the ground, medics ran in to assess the sports star, before calling for additional assistance. 

'Front gate. Front gate. Yeah, just tell them it's urgent,' one of the show's medics called over a two-way radio.

As he slowly came to, a disoriented Nathan asked the medics if he collapsed and admitted: 'Jeez, I don't know where I went then.'

The celebrities were called back to camp while Nathan was taken away for further treatment, with his heart rate worryingly slow at just 44 beats per minute. 

Back at camp, the celebrities who witnessed Nathan's medical episode tried to make sense of what had happened. 

'He hit his head on a log. Like, he collapsed... For a minute, I thought he was having a heart attack 'cause his eyes kind of rolled over,' recounted a stunned Poh Ling Yeow.

A tearful Maria, 28, added: 'It's just scary. Yeah, it was just scary. Like, he went white as a ghost.' 

As she continued to cry, the other celebrities tried to comfort a shell-shocked Maria, who was walking just behind Nathan when he collapsed. 

Meanwhile, the medics took Nathan over to the medical hut, where they checked him over more thoroughly.

'I have had that. I have had that lightheaded stuff before when I get up quick. And I think that's what [happened],' Nathan told them.

After being given the all-clear, Nathan returned to camp, much to the relief of the other celebrities.

'It's low blood sugar, which is standard for me. Low heart rate, and I get a little bit of lightheadedness when I sort of get up quickly, even in my normal life,' he told them.

He said he was also experiencing severe stomach cramps, and claimed the pain had contributed to his medical episode.

'Seeing the celebs react to Nathan's fall really shows how loved he is by the whole camp. Definitely a favourite to win the show this season,' added another.
