Candice Warner (née Falzon) was only 14 when she competed in her first professional Ironman She went on to earn a place in the grueling Nutri-Grain Ironman & Ironwoman Series in 2008

Thanks to her success, Candice has become something of an “it girl” in Sydney; a must-have on social and sports pages

But in 2007, the athlete and professional surf lifesaver was subjected to brutal trolling after media reported she had a drunken encounter with footballer Sonny Bill Williams in a cabin pub toilet

On Monday, viewers will see Candice relive that moment in her life during an interrogation on SAS Australia

« I try to turn everything in my life into a Some of the things people said or wrote about me hurt, but I use that as a motivation Thank them, » she said later told Daily Telegraph

Candice met cricketer David Warner after contacting him on Twitter while playing at the Ashes in England in 2013 They messaged back and forth, started video chatting, and once back in Australia, started a whirlwind romance

Earlier in the tournament, Candice had been shaken by the sight of South African fans tormenting her husband while wearing Sonny Bill Williams masks Then came that second blow

“I felt so happy that day,” Candice later told Australian Women’s Weekly “I was hoping the terrible things were behind us I was starting to feel this first stage of pregnancy – the changes subtle in my body were starting We were overwhelmed, knowing that another little Warner was on the way

« I was getting [his daughters] ready to go to the afternoon shoot and out of the corner of my eye, on the screen, I could see something going on It was my first time knew about the tampering of the ball « 

The fallout was intense The trio were banned from the tournament and packed on return flights Candice and David returned to Australia to a horde of waiting media, screaming and showing cameras to their faces

There have been reviews that the couple took their daughters into the fray, with some accusing them of ‘hiding behind’ their children But Candice later said they were told they were would go through a private outing: « I’m not fragile but I was in a bad state I was completely drained when I saw the media »
