The pair are connected on the social networking site

Katie Price has an unexpected new Twitter fan.

The model, 35, is now being followed by Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius, who is currently on trial for the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

Katie – who’s married to stripper Kieran Hayler – has also started following Oscar, 27.

It’s been speculated on the social networking site that South African Oscar may have taken interest in Katie after she wrote about his case in her Now column last month.

The mum-of-four said that ‘we are all equal

when it comes to judicial undertakings’ and that she’s ‘certainly not going to judge Oscar on other people’s theories portrayed via the media’.

‘Either it was a tragic accident due to Oscar believing Reeva was a violent house intruder or it was a sinister domestic fallout,’ wrote Katie.

‘The fact that cannot be changed is that Reeva was killed. The only person who really knows what exactly went on is Oscar himself.’

Katie‘s brother Danny couldn’t help noting that she and Oscar are now connected on Twitter.

‘Interesting!’ he Tweeted.
