AMERICAN television network Fox is set to release an explosive interview in which O.J. Simpson discusses the murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman.

The 70-year-old former sportsman sat down for an interview with TV host Judith Regan in 2006 but the contents of the interview have never been released before.

The interview concerns a book titled If I Did It: Confessions of a Killer with O.J. hypothetically discussing how he would have killed Nicole and Ron -- who were found murdered outside Nicole’s home in Brentwood, Los Angeles, on 12 June 1994.

O.J. was tried for the double murder, but found not guilty by a jury on 3 October 1995 in a court case that was deemed the ‘Trial of the Century’ due to the huge international interest in the trial.

US news site TMZ claims the new footage -- set to be aired in America on Sunday 11 March -- sees O.J. hypothetically discussing how he would have killed the pair, and says he would have used an accomplice.

The special, titled O.J. Simpson: The Lost Confession?, was due to be aired 12 years ago but was shelved following objections from Fox station owners.

Some think the footage could amount to a confession from O.J. for the 1994 murders.

According to TMZ, the footage will show the former NFL player talk about himself in the third person, but slips into first, while discussing how he would theoretically kill Nicole and Ron.

The site alleges that OJ will explain: “he went to her house the evening of June 12, 1994, to “scare the s*** out of her.” He took the Bronco [the white van he drove while involved in a highly publicized police chase in 1994] to her home with his friend, brought a knife and put a hat and gloves on for dramatic effect.”

The alleged accomplice is not named by O.J. in the footage.

Further details offered by the star as he discusses how he would hypothetically carry out the murders, include him looking through Nicole’s window and noticing burning candles, leading him to expect her to be awaiting a man.

Upon the arrival of Ron, who was said to have been attending Nicole’s home to return sunglasses left by her mother at a nearby restaurant in which he worked, O.J. then suggest he would start “screaming in rage”.

He is then alleged to suggest he “blacked out” when Nicole emerged from her home and then “came to covered in blood.”

A trailer for the TV special asks viewers to reach their own conclusions, stating: “Does he confess? You be the judge.”

The trailer also shows O.J. sitting and addressing the camera, saying: “I’m going to tell you a story you’ve never heard before. It takes place the night of June 12, 1994 and it concerns the murders of my ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her young friend Ronald Goldman.”

He continued: “Forget everything you think you know about that night, because I know the facts better than anyone. This is one story the whole world got wrong.”

While O.J. was acquitted of the murders, the mystery has never been solved, and the former sportsman was later found liable for the wrongful death and battery of Ron Goldman after his family brought a civil lawsuit against O.J. following his ‘not guilty’ verdict in the criminal case.

He was ordered to pay $33,500,000 (£24,286,830) in damages.

O.J. was sentenced to 33 years in prison for an armed robbery in Las Vegas -- but was released in October last year after serving nine years of his sentence.
