If I Did It: OJ Simpson’s infamous ‘confession’ interview to finally air on US TV

Explosive telly awaits...

An infamous TV interview with OJ Simpson in which he speculates about what happened on the night of his ex-wife’s murder is set to finally air on US television after 12 years.

In 2006, HarperCollins sacked publisher Judith Regan after she announced plans for If I Did It, a tell-all account by Simpson in which he offers a ‘hypothetical’ explanation for the murders of Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman in 1994.

But while the book was eventually released by another publisher, Regan’s companion TV interview was never released – until now.

Next month, the ‘lost’ interview will finally air on Fox, and it will reportedly see Simpson explaining how he was acquitted of Goldman and Brown’s murders in 1994.

In the interview with Regan, Simpson also talks about how he would have committed the murders “if he were the one responsible”.

“Simpson’s explosive words finally will be heard, as he answers the questions that gripped a nation during the notorious ‘Trial of the Century’,’the network said in a release.

The interview comes after Simpson was released from a Nevada jail in October last year, having served nine years of a 33 sentence for armed robbery and kidnapping.

Earlier this year, it was also reported that he’s starring in Sacha Baron Cohen’s next film, after the controversial character comedian shelled out £15,000 for Simpson’s services.
