Other aspects of the interview include his relationship with Reeva, the allegations of his previous abusive behaviour towards her, and his previous use of firearms.
In an opinion piece for the Mirror in 2014, Williams-Thomas wrote that he believes the shooting of Reeva Steenkamp was a tragic accident. The journalist was granted unique access to Pistorius during his trial and heard his personal account away from the courts. In the article, Williams-Thomas states that he believes Pistorius genuinely thought an intruder was in his house.
The Steenkamp family declined to take part in the programme.
The programme will be aired on ITV on 24 June.
