Anger at Michael Barrymore's new Big Brother job

Post by Baz on Tue Dec 16, 2008 4:07 am



Michael Barrymore's new job as Celebrity Big Brother's 'roving reporter' has sparked a storm of protest from the family of the man found dead in his swimming pool.

The father of Stuart Lubbock has blasted Channel 4 chiefs for employing the comedian on the show's Little Brother version.

Barrymore starts his new job on January 2 where he will link up with E4 presenter George Lamb.

"As one who knows what its like to live in the Big Brother House, Michael will be able to offer his thoughts on how his fellow celebs are fairing as well as becoming BBLBs very own celeb task tester and on the street reporter," Channel 4 said.

But news of his TV return has angered and shocked Terry Lubbock, whose 31-year-old son Stuart died during a party at Barrymore's then home in Roydon, Essex, in March 2001.

Terry, 65, only recently suffered the setback of hearing there would not be a second inquest opened into Stuart's death, despite a new Essex Police investigation finding evidence he might have been unlawfully killed.

And now he has been hit by this fresh blow.

Speaking from his home in Harlow, Essex, Terry said: "I'm absolutely disgusted, sickened and appalled. It was bad enough when Channel 4 brought Barrymore back from exile in New Zealand in 2006 to appear on Celebrity Big Brother.

"That really upset me - I didn't feel he deserved to be paid to be on TV.

"Now they are bringing more misery to me by giving him a job as a TV reporter. I just want this man to go away and leave my family in peace.

"Why should he be allowed to get on with his life and career while I've still got to struggle with knowing that no one has been brought to justice for my son's death?"

Barrymore was in Celebrity Big Brother in 2006 when he came runner-up to then unknown Essex girl Chantelle Houghton.

Essex Police had re-opened the investigation into Stuart's death and the chief investigating officer, Detective Superintendent Gareth Wilson, said he believed father-of-two Stuart had been the victim of a serious assault before his body was found in the pool at Barrymore's house.

At the inquest in 2002 a coroner recorded an open verdict after four pathologists gave conflicting accounts over how Stuart died.

Barrymore, 56, controversially attended the inquest but declined to respond to any questions about the case.

The father of the guy that died is never going to let this go. He will hound Barrymore forever.

I agree, but he wants to ruin Barrymore. There is more to that story.

Perhaps he thinks he's going to get a large payout.
