‘I am so disappointed’: Candice Warner finally reveals what REALLY happened in her feud with Roxy Jacenko which caused the pair to end their friendship after SAS Australia
On Wednesday, the 35-year-old insisted that she is ready to kiss and make up with the PR guru, after the two women fell out when the former Ironwoman punched her during a boxing challenge on the show.
Speaking on The Kyle and Jackie O Show, Candice said: ‘It’s really sad, to be completely honest. I’m so disappointed by the whole thing.
Not happy: Candice Warner has admitted she’s still ‘disappointed’ about her ongoing feud with Roxy Jacenko, months after the two fell out following their stint on SAS Australia
‘Now that time has passed… it was never an intention, and I’d never want to lose a friend over something like this. I’m sorry she feels like this.’
Candice said she’s more than happy to make up with Roxy if given the opportunity.
When asked by Kyle Sandilands if she wanted to make friends, she said: ‘Of course I do. From my end there’s no dramas whatsoever.
‘It was more a business friendship… She’s a good person, she’s got a family.’
Roxy’s good pal Jackie O Henderson said she believes the pair can ‘sort things out’, to which Candice replied: ‘Absolutely. We can deal with it.’

Jackie chimed in: ‘I haven’t spoken to Roxy about it so I don’t know, I’m just an observer!’
Last month, Roxy officially ended her friendship with Candice after they competed in a brutal boxing match on the military-inspired show.
Roxy, 40, explained on The Kyle and Jackie O Show that she no longer considers Candice a friend after the women were pitted against each other in a physical fight during the season premiere of SAS Australia.
While Candice happily took several swipes at Roxy during the fight, the Sydney publicist said she refused to retaliate because of their longstanding friendship.

‘You know what? Is [Candice] really my friend anymore? No,’ Roxy raged.
‘You know why I never hit back? She’s my mate and I’m not going to smack [her] in the face for other people’s entertainment,’ she added.
You wouldn’t continue punching when the person – me – turns their back and continue punching them in the back of the head. In boxing, that’s totally not allowed. The reality is, I can’t punch my then-friend in the face for people’s entertainment.’
‘You look back and go, “F**k, I should have whacked her one,” but you know what? I’m bigger than that and I’ve got respect for other people,’ she continued.
Another twist: Roxy said she reached out to Candice after filming the show in the NSW Snowy Mountains in August and tried to repair their broken friendship – but instead of accepting the olive branch, Roxy claimed that Candice simply ‘sacked her’ as her manager instead

But instead of accepting the olive branch, Roxy claimed that Candice simply ‘sacked her’ as her manager instead.
‘No, she sacked me instead,’ Roxy laughed. ‘People will always let you down. I believe after what I did for Candice that it was a real smack in the face, pardon the pun.’
SAS Australia returns to Channel Seven on Monday at 7:30pm
Ouch: ‘You look back and go, “F**k, I should have whacked her one,” but you know what? I’m bigger than that and I’ve got respect for other people,’ Roxy told The Kyle and Jackie O Show
