THE dad of the man found dead in Michael Barrymore’s swimming pool has revealed he has terminal cancer.
Terry Lubbock, whose 31-year-old son, Stuart, was found following a party at the star’s Essex home, said he wants a new inquest despite recently being diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Mr Lubbock told The Mirror: “It’s a killer and I’m only going to be around for a few months.
“They can’t do anything about it, they say it has spread too far around my body.”
Terry, 76, who has previously suffered a number of strokes, was speaking ahead of the twentieth anniversary of his son’s death next month.
He believes a new inquest would allow the full details of his son’s death to be made public for the first time.
Terry said: “Then I can rest in peace. We have got to get another inquest, then I will feel as though my job has been done.”
Talking about his battle to get to the truth, he added: “I’ve given it my best shot, it’s taken me twenty years to start to get some kind of justice. I think it’s going to come.”
The pensioner said he was diagnosed at the Princess Alexandra Hospital, Harlow, Essex, after falling last month at his nearby care home.
He said: “The keep an eye on me and see me every three months. The last time I went they gave me the all clear but the day after I fell over.
“I was okay that night but in the morning I felt terrible and they took me to hospital and gave me a full check up and that’s when they found the cancer.
“They found it had moved on from the prostate.”
