According to a statement released by ITV:
“In the documentary, Pistorius gives his account of what happened the night he killed his girlfriend and is questioned about key details of the prosecution case which resulted in his conviction.
He also talks about his relationship with Reeva, the allegations of his previous abusive behavior towards her and and his previous use of firearms.”
Oscar who is preparing to return to jail will be speaking with Williams from his uncle’s home.
Meanwhile, Katie Price revealed last month she had been a pen pal of Pistorius during his trial under the pseudonym Jordan.
The 38-year-old former glamour model made the revelation during an appearance on an episode of Loose Women where the topic of discussion was about women attracted to male serial killers.
She said she received direct messages from the paralympian on Twitter after she wrote a column in which she mentioned him.
Katie Price said, “I mentioned him in a column I did and it started from there. He was thanking me and I thought, ‘Is this really him?’ My brother saw the messages and then he had a verified tick. It was definitely him. In the column I was saying you’ve got to let the courts decide. Don’t judge anyone until the courts decide.”
“He was direct messaging me during his case when all the media stuff was going on before the verdict.” Price added, “It got to the point where I thought, ‘Actually I don’t want to message. I don’t want to cross that barrier where I’ve got dialogue.’”
