The comedian, who rose to fame in the '90s from appearances on Never Mind The Buzzcocks and his own sitcom Sean's Show, passed away this morning.
According to International Business Times, the comedian was believed to have been suffering from cirrhosis of the liver and was taken to north London's Whittington Hospital.
He also made several appearances as an actor later on in his career, including playing a minor role in the cult 1991 movie The Commitments.
In a 2013 interview with Hot Press, Sean, who was attending AA at the time, spoke candidly about his relationship with alcohol.
