“I am genuinely, honestly contemptible and it breaks my heart when it is reported we have no remorse; that we penchant something. we do not.
“I can’t change anything. we can't mislay that day from history; what we have done.
“I know those girls would be 26 this year with families of their own, jobs and lives. we guess about them when they were branch 21 and when they were branch 18.
“I know no matter what we contend that people are not going to consider any better of me. we know that, we don’t design it to but we would much rather people have the law about how we feel.
“I have zero to benefit by observant these things.
“I know we am never getting out. we have supposed that from day one.”
Pals Holly and Jessica were 10 when school caretaker Huntley murdered them at his residence in Soham, Cambs, in Aug 2002.
The killer, now 44, confesses on the fasten to deliberately killing Jessica to stop her from lifting the alarm after Holly died in the bath in what he insists was an accident.
Huntley added: “I contend that the first one was a genuine accident.
“OK, the second one we panicked and once she tried leaving the residence we realised we could not leave the house.
“And while we pronounced in probity that we just acted instinctively, we knew we had to stop her leaving the house.”
Holly and Jessica’s families were put by the distress of a full probity discussion in 2003 given Huntley refused to beg guilty.
HOLLY Wells and Jessica Chapman would have incited 26 this year had their lives not been snatched divided by Ian Huntley.

Huntley was charged, tried, found guilty and condemned to at slightest 40 years in prison.
On the fasten he claims he wanted to acknowledge to murdering Jessica and to the killing of Holly.
But he added: “That was never going to occur as we wanted to be means to contend what happened in court. It was something we guess very prolonged and tough about given we did not wish families by that trial, we did not.”
After the girls were reported blank in 2002, Huntley was seen on TV observant he was likely to be the last person to have seen them that day and hoped they were alive.
He even voiced his magnetism to Holly’s father Kevin, despite meaningful that he had killed them.
But 16 years later, Huntley whines that he was set up and creates no reparation for his lies.
He said: “Obviously before to my arrest, OK, we feel like we was tricked by the Press given we was pestered given we lived on-site and we did not give and talk for a while and we did not wish to either.
“What they actually pronounced to me was if we gave an talk they would then discharge this. Obviously they found out we had pronounced to the police that we was one of the last people to see the girls.
“But when the Press found that out, they started hounding me and we refused to give an interview.
“They pronounced if you concluded to an talk you will be left alone. So when we gave the talk they did not stop pestering me at all. In fact, it seemed to increase.
“But we never wanted to probity the Press or to give any interviews. we done the decision to give the talk to stop the pestering.”

He is even allowed to sequence in fish and chips from outward given he claims the jail food is so bad.

“The jail food is shocking. We send out for dishes like fish and chips every weekend.
“I am a painter. we play chess. we play scrabble. Do crosswords. we used to be a good chess player but we keep getting all these headaches.
“Everybody knows we have had self-murder attempts and we have been in a coma. we have had a lot of health problems given and they have run-down over the years to the indicate now where we am really struggling.
Nobody can seem to figure out what is wrong with me.
“Every time they put me on medication, my physique reacts very badly to it. They keep observant it is down to stress. Taking duloxetine.
“It is essentially an anti-depressant. It is also widely used for neurological pain; for things like electrical startle sensations in your head.”
Huntley insists he keeps divided from newspapers and documentaries, which has isolated him from life on the outside.
Instead, he spends his time reflecting on his crimes.
He added: “To be honest with you, we consider about since we am in almost every day.
“I have been in jail now scarcely 16 years. we theory you lose . . . when you don’t review papers or see documentaries . . . you remove hit with the reality of the situation, what goes on outward these walls, given it is like a totally apart universe out there to what we have in here.
