Mike Tindall takes a selfie with his wife Zara at the Adelaide 500 street circuit

Fresh out of the jungle, Mike Tindall is making the most of being reunited with his wife Zara as the pair took a sweet selfie while at a motor racing event. 

The former England rugby player, 44, posted the loved-up snap as well as a video of himself on Instagram from the inside of a corvette in the Adelaide 500 – an annual motor street track racing event for supercars. 

Mike, 44, who has recently left the Australian jungle after coming fourth in I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, appears to be fitting back into normal life perfectly after the ITV series ended, and was in his element as he inspected a little red corvette and took it for a spin.

Later, the former England rugby star posted a photo on Instagram of himself up on stage getting the mics ready for a Killers gig.

On Instagram, he wrote: ‘Next stop on the whistle stop Aus tour is Adelaide for the @adelaide500.

‘Have a look at the track from the inside of a corvette and also got Vanilla Mike to get the mics ready for @thekillers for Sunday night!’

Clearly loving his time down under, he also posted several photos of himself loved up with his wife Zara. 

And keen to get back in shape following his stint in the jungle, he also posted a video of himself going back to the gym.

The sports lover also added he was attending the Aussie golf open in Melbourne, crediting it for bringing together men, women and all ability golfers.

He added that he and his wife would also take a day to go wine tasting.

Mike became a hit in the jungle, chiefly for his calm demeanour but also for wearing tight colourful budgie smugglers. 

And he also recently revealed that  a limited edition of the tight swim pants would go on sale, with the profits going to the Cure Parkinson’s charity. 

Fans on social media were quick to engage with the couple.

One wrote: ‘Let’s be honest, this is a royal tour we’re all invested in.’

Another wrote: ‘Lovely to see Mike and Zara out and about in Australia before heading back to the UK.’ 

A third wrote: ‘I love this… plenty of family time… but just curious to know…are the trunks making a reappearance?’

It is estimated that Mike earned around £150,000 for appearing on I’m a celebrity.

This is on top of other significant earnings made by him and his wife.    

The Queen’s granddaughter and her rugby ace husband, who live on Princess Anne’s Gatcombe estate, have become masters at signing lucrative deals, and are bringing in hefty earnings, according to branding expert Nick Ede.

Zara’s new collaboration with luxury brand Musto is thought to have brought in a  £200,000 and Mike will now likely be offered other lucrative roles. 

Despite their wealth, the couple were seen dressed low key and carrying their own luggage during their trip to the southern part of Australia.

The pair touched down in Adelaide on Thursday ahead of the 500 motorsports race.

Blending in with the locals in their casual ensembles, the couple of nearly 20 years looked excited as they traipsed through the airport.

Princess Anne’s daughter looked casual chic in a dark blue blazer over a blue and white floral shirt and distressed ripped skinny jeans.

She accessorised with a pair of designer shades to hide her face and strolled around in comfortable white sneakers.

Without a lick of makeup on, the equestrian let her natural beauty shine through as she pulled her golden locks back into a low bun.

Despite her social status, Zara and her former rugby player husband, 44, proved they weren’t too good to catch a commercial flight from Melbourne and also carted their own luggage along.
