Candice Warner insists she ‘did what she was instructed to do’ on SAS Australia as she speaks about her feud with former BFF Roxy Jacenko after THAT brutal boxing match
Her friendship with Sydney PR queen Roxy Jacenko abruptly ended last year after their brutal boxing match on SAS Australia.
And now Candice Warner has spoken about their infamous feud.
The former Ironwoman, 36, told Stellar on Friday she just ‘did as she was instructed to do’ on Seven’s military-style show when ordered to spar with Roxy.

‘I can’t even comment on [the feud] because I got so much more out of the show than just that boxing scene,’ said the wife of cricketer David Warner.
‘I just did what I was instructed to do and so did everyone else. And we were all friends in that show, [not] just the person I was boxing with.’
Candice said she loved her time on the show and liked being pushed to her limits both ‘physically and mentally’.

Roxy, 41, who was Candice’s friend and publicist at the time, ended their friendship last year after they faced off in a boxing match on SAS Australia.
Candice later told Daily Mail Australia she was ‘moving forward’ after their feud.
She described her experience on the program as ‘one of the best’ of her life and said she wasn’t focusing on her falling out with the Sweaty Betty PR founder.
‘Yeah to be honest, that was all last year and this year is all about moving forward and looking to the future,’ she said in January.

‘When I first signed up for SAS, I thought what a great challenge for me. And when I started training I thought all I wanted to do was inspire my kids and show them that anything is possibly and mummy is strong and all that stuff,’ she explained.
She had previously addressed her feud with Roxy on the Fitzy & Wippa radio show in November, saying she wasn’t ‘losing sleep’ over it.
She also revealed she was prepared to sit down with Roxy and settle their differences, but her former pal had flat-out refused.

‘It is what it is and I’m not losing sleep!’ she said, adding that she couldn’t wait for her contract with The Ministry of Talent, Roxy’s influencer agency, to expire.
At about this time, Roxy told Daily Mail Australia that Candice was ‘delusional’ to think they could repair their shattered friendship.
‘Someone who carries on punching you when your back is turned, and then sacks you some two weeks later as management after four years of hard work and support would need to be delusional to think I would want to be friends!’ she raged.
‘She might be hard up for friends and accept people doing that to her, but that’s not a friend I’m interested in keeping.’
