Sean Lock leaves '£3million fortune to family' after tragic cancer death aged 58

SEAN Lock has left his family a fortune of around £3million after his tragic cancer death.

The comedian passed away this week aged 58 after a long battle with cancer.

Lock, who appeared on panel shows 8 Out Of 10 Cats and 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, has now left a £3million fortune.

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 is also said to have earned more than £1million in 2019.

Lock's agent confirmed on Wednesday Lock had passed away from cancer.

The star was previously diagnosed with skin cancer in 1990 while he worked as a labourer on a building site but it is not clear if the disease returned.

He went on to make a full recovery and has since worked with others to help raise awareness of the disease.

Tributes from the comedy world immediately flooded in for Lock as the heartbreaking news spread.

His friend and fellow comedian Harry Hill also revealed the comic spent his final months in a hospice before dying at home.

Hill – a former doctor – said: "He struggled with [the illness] – he went through all the same emotions anyone in that position would experience. But he was stoical about it.

"Because he was so bright, he read up on all the latest treatments. He knew much more about that side of medicine than I ever did.”

Bill Bailey, one of Lock's closest friends, said he kept his sense of humour even as his health was rapidly declining.

He said: "Even in his last few days, we were still having a laugh, still joking, still coming up with ideas. We had great conversations. I brought in my guitar and sang him his favourite Johnny Cash songs.” 

Lock's final public appearance was in December when he appeared in a video for charity Edible London.

The star was married to Anoushka Nara Giltsoff and the pair had two daughters born in 2004 and 2006 and a son born in 2009 together.
