His death in 2021 sparked an outpouring of tributes from the world of comedy including close friend Bill Bailey, Kevin Bridges, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Fry

The much-loved comedian died after he bravely chose to fight his battle with cancer quietly.

Probate records have now revealed the value of Sean's estate, which will go to his family.

According to reports, Sean said his wife Anoushka and the couple's two daughters and son should inherit the estate, valued at £4,084,911, which was to be held in a trust.

Born in Chertsey, Surrey, Lock left school in the early 1980s and began working on building sites but developed skin cancer, which he blamed on over-exposure to the sun.

He recovered and decided to focus on a career in comedy.

Early in his TV career, Lock appeared on the 1993 series Newman and Baddiel in Pieces, alongside fellow comics Rob Newman and David Baddiel.

Jon Richardson paid tribute to late comedy legend as his first posthumous new episode of 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown aired on Channel 4 earlier this year.

As Richardson said in his tweet, he and his co-stars were aware, and he shared his awe at how Lock didn't let his cancer stop him from bringing the laughs.

"Watching Sean's last ep of Countdown I can see how upset I was knowing he was ill and how much that affected my performance, while Sean himself continued to be effortlessly hilarious," he wrote.

"A true comic to the end. That's why he's trending on Twitter and why he's so missed."

While Richardson refers to the episode as "Sean's last", and the episode itself contained a 'in memory of' title card, a tweet from Channel 4 referred to it as "one of his last appearances on the show". The broadcast told Digital Spy that this was one of the last episodes Sean filmed before he passed away.
