Pistorius is currently on trial for the murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, who he shot dead in February last year. The case shocked the world when it was revealed the successful Paralympian had fired four shots through a closed door after allegedly mistaking his girlfriend for an intruder.

Last month, Katie Price said she wasn't 'going to judge' Oscar Pistorius, and expressed her sympathy for everyone involved in the case 'as they're all now embroiled in what can only be described as a media circus.'

She called on people to reserve judgement and to await the outcome of the trial.

'No matter who you are or where you're from or what you do, we are all equal when it comes to judicial undertakings and no prejudice or external factors should complicate the process,' wrote the 35-year-old.

Oscar is in the witness box for the fifth day today, as prosecutors try to determine the sequence of events that led to him shooting dead his girlfriend on Valentine's Day 2013.

Today they seem to be focusing on the minutes before he approached the bathroom and shot through the door - attempting to determine facts such as which side the athlete got out of bed, the position of various fans and items in the bedroom.
