British comedian and much-loved television personality, Sean Lock, sadly lost his battle to cancer, it was announced this week. The 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown star previously struggled with skin cancer after first being diagnosed with the condition in the 1990s.
The comedian did make a full recovery at the time of his diagnosis.
According to reports, he filed annual accounts for his Sean Lock Ltd company a month ago and it had cash reserves of just over £1m and total assets – including property worth £350,000 – of £2.8m.
The Daily Star also reports Sean earned more than £1 million in 2019, bringing home around over £250,000 after taxes.
The comic is survived by his wife Anoushka Nara Giltsoff and their three children.
Although the childrens’ names are not known, the couple had a daughter in 2004, a second daughter in 2006, and a son in 2009.
Sean had chosen to keep his family out of the public eye but in an unearthed interview, the TV personality had praised his other half.
In a 2010 interview with TimeOut, Lock described how he and Anoushka would strike a healthy work-life balance for their family when he came home from lengthy tours.
“Every time I come back me and the wife have arguments and I fall out with the kids,” he said.
“The problem is she doesn’t know anything about how hard my job is and likewise I’ve forgotten how hard her job is. That’s the hard bit, but you get over it.
“Recently my wife said: ‘The best thing to do when you come back is just shut the f**k up.
“‘Don’t say anything. Don’t get involved. Know your position. You’re the lowest in the family, you’re right behind the baby in the list of important things. Stay there.'”
Sean added: “And strangely, that sort of worked.”
