Bill Bailey Posts Heartwarming Picture To Mark Six Months Since Best Friend Sean Lock Died

Much-loved comedian Sean Lock passed away back in August from cancer at the age of 58

Bill Bailey has paid tribute the late Sean Lock to mark six months since his best friend's passing.

Lock passed away on 16 August 2021 at the age of 58 from lung cancer.

Commenting on Bailey's post, one fan wrote: "Saw the both of you in the 100 Club 20 years ago. I was drunk and stumbled into the tiny room doubling as a changing room, adamant that my coat was there. Sean kept telling me I was wrong but I wasn’t having it so he took the p*** out of me until I left. Wish I could remember it."

Another added: "Always a whiff of mutual admiration when you were both on screen. Lovely to watch and such a sad loss."

A third said: "Didn't know him. Loved his humour, loved the character I saw on telly, which everyone says that's who he was. Very sad for his friends/family, and the millions like me who just ached for the next performance."

Fellow comedian Jon Richardson, 39, also tweeted earlier this month to remember Lock while he watched his last episode of Countdown.

Back in August, following Lock's passing Bill Bailey praised his pal for being so 'courageous' with how he dealt with his cancer diagnosis over the past 'few years'.

In an interview with ITV News, Bailey revealed that Lock had been dealing with lung cancer for some time, but had continued to work.

He said: "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.

"He's an amazingly courageous and tough individual who was mentally strong throughout the whole time. I'm just grateful for the time we have had together."
