Bill Bailey: Star Sean was joking to the end

- By Tom Bryant

COMIC Sean Lock was still joking “even in his last days”, pals say.

Bill Bailey said of his “dearest friend”, who died aged 58 from cancer: “We were still joking, still coming up with ideas.We had great conversati­ons – and I brought my guitar in and I sang him Johnny Cash songs.”

Harry Hill revealed: “He took his illness in typically dry style. I heard he was in a hospice for a bit of rest. I called him up. ‘Wow!’ I said. ‘A hospice, what’s that like?’ ‘It’s ok, he said, ‘...and the sex is amazing’.”

Yesterday Eddie Izzard added his tribute to the 8 Out Of 10 Cats star, saying: “His legacy lives on.” Channel 4 last night devoted its later schedule to the dad-ofthree’s talents.
