Sean Lock death – Bill Bailey says ‘fearless’ comedian battled lung cancer in secret as star ‘leaves £3M to family’

SEAN LOCK ‘SPENT HIS FINAL MONTHS IN A HOSPICE’ BEFORE DYING AT HOME AGED 58 AND WAS ‘LAUGHING UNTIL THE END’

SEAN Lock spent his final months in a hospice before dying at home and was “laughing until the end”, his friends said.

Comedian Lock, 58, died yesterday following a lengthy battle with can. His friend and fellow comedian Harry Hill said Lock had called him from a hospice a few months ago, the Telegraph reported.

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, saying: “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.”
