"I've lost two children": Anthony McCluskie

Anthony McCluskie on Daybreak this morning

The father of late EastEnders actress Gemma McCluskie has disowned his son who murdered her, declaring: "I've lost two children."

Anthony McCluskie expressed disbelief that killer Tony still shows no remorse for the brutal attack and has refused even to mention his sister's name since he was jailed.

Mr McCluskie initially stood by his son but today told ITV's Daybreak he had blocked the inmate's calls from prison because he has "never said sorry".

"I've lost two children really but, at the end of the day, I'm finished with Tony now," he said.

Gemma McCluskie went missing in March of last year

"I've been to visit him in prison since the sentence and I was so shocked by his attitude and how he was with me," he said.

"He came into the visiting room with a swagger and I started asking him questions; 'Why did you discredit your sister? Why did you tell all these lies? The QCs turned you inside out...' and he kept still denying it."
