Channel 4 will be clearing its schedule tonight, to pay tribute to comedian, Sean Lock, who has died from cancer, aged 58.

Lock appeared on 18 series of 8 Out of 10 Cats, including its spin-off series, 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, which has been filmed at dock10 since its creation in 2013.

Channel 4’s Chief Creative Officer Ian Katz described Sean Lock as “one of the most original voices in comedy and one of the loveliest people too.”

“Sean’s bone dry wit helped make 8 Out of 10 Cats one of Channel 4’s best loved shows and we owe him a huge debt of thanks for all the years of laughter and fun,” he added.

Tonight, Channel 4 and All 4 will air the stand-up special Sean Lock: Keep it Light at 10pm, followed at 11pm by a classic episode of 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown.

All 4 will be highlighting a collection of his TV appearances including 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown.
