COMEDIAN Sean Lock’s cause of death was lung cancer, his friend Bill Bailey revealed today.
The Eight Out of 10 cats legend passed away earlier this week surrounded by family, sparking tributes from across the world of comedy.
Today Bill Bailey told ITV: “He had been diagnosed with lung cancer a few years ago and it was at the time quite a blow, particularly when it was quite advanced.
‘We’ve tried to make the most of the last few years. We spent a lot of time together and went on trips together. And he’s continued to work.”
It comes as annual accounts for his Sean Lock Ltd company had cash reserves of just over £1million.
Documents posted on Companies House last month also show he had total assets – including property worth £350,000 – of £2.8million.
The dad-of-three, who starred on 8 Out of 10 Cats and 8 Our of 10 Cats Does Countdown, is also said to have earned more than £1million in 2019.
