ITV have announced a special one-off programme featuring an exclusive interview with Oscar Pistorius. 
 
In Oscar Pistorius: The Interview, the former Paralympian speaks to investigative journalist, Mark Williams-Thomas, in his first television interview about the night he shot and killed his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day 2013. 
 
In the programme, to be shown on Friday 24 June at 9pm on ITV, Pistorius speaks as he prepares to return to jail having been convicted of murder after his original conviction of culpable homicide was overturned by South Africa's Supreme Court. 
 
Pistorius is interviewed at his uncle's home, where he is living while awaiting sentencing, which is expected to be delivered later this month. 
 
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 behaviour towards her and and his previous use of firearms.
 
The Steenkamp family were asked to take part in this programme, but declined.
