On Thursday night Channel 4 aired a special two hour documentary about the death which took place at Michael’s £2million Essex mansion in 2011.
The documentary revealed that while all at the party co-operated with the police, none of the party guests were able to shed any light as to how Lubbock ended up in the pool or how he obtained “horrific’ injuries to his anus.
At the end of the TV special, Channel 4 bosses splashed up a message confirming that the people a the party – excluding Barrymore himself – all declined to comment when approached by the channel.
Letting rip, one viewer fumed: “Watching this program is making my blood boil.
“Of those people at the party, at least one of them knows the truth about how Stuart died.
“How can they live with themselves, keeping the truth from the Lubbock family? It’s utterly unforgivable.”
Another vented: “This Barrymore doc about the death of Stuart Lubbock is horrific.
“Somebody knows where and how Stuart sustained those injuries, and somebody else has almost certainly heard somebody else talking about it, such is human nature.”
A third continued: “All the party guests by their silence are equally responsible.
“I feel sorry for Stuart Lubbock’s family who have been waiting all these years for an answer.”
In a statement released shortly before the Channel 4 documentary aired, Michael said: “I’ve been asked by various sections of the press to comment upon the Channel Four documentary that is to be broadcast tonight.
“As I’ve made clear to everyone, I am not able to comment because Channel 4 are refusing to show it to me or even let me know what it contains.
“Forgive me for looking down on the iPad, I don’t want to get any of this wrong.
“However, I would say to anyone who would like to get to the truth of the matter, that they should watch the ITV interview I did last year with Piers Morgan. He went into everything and left no stone unturned.
He continued: “The truth is.. I have always done everything anyone has asked of me, and I’ve cooperated with everyone.
“Essex Police’s own QC has said that ‘we know Mr Barrymore has had nothing to do with this, and that there is no evidence of linking him to the injuries to Mr Lubbock or the pool’.
“I have nothing to do with this whatsoever, and yet I keep getting bashed and bullied by the media. I may comment further once I’ve seen the show go out later tonight.
“In the meantime, my heartfelt sympathies go out to the Lubbock family and I truly hope they find peace. And it is for that reason that I have constantly pressed for an independent police force to examine everything to do with the case and reach a proper conclusion. And I continue to do so.”
