The 33-year-old said in his Instagram post that he had put a lot of time, money and effort into looking into the Covid pandemic and explained the effect the virus has had on him.
“Firstly the work dried up,” Sean, who also starred in Our Girl alongside Michelle Keegan, said.
“No one would hire me whether in front of or behind the camera, all my usual ways of making money just stopped, eventually I couldn’t afford the rent.
“So I gave up my 4 bed house and move onto my friend’s couch. I had to put all my belongings into storage.
“After a while I couldn’t afford to pay the storage bill and after about 4 weeks of missing the payments – equating to about £500 – Safe store UK sold all belongings.
“My sofa, my bed frame, my office equipment, desk, chair, wardrobes, mirrors, all my coats and clothes and my projector.
“Everything to fill a family house. My whole life was in that storage unit. I lost it all. I was devastated but I couldn’t ask anyone for help because it was my choice to speak out.
“Luckily I got my mattress out in time and I’ve been sleeping on that in a friend’s spare room for over a year now. He has given me a safe space when I really needed it.
“I haven’t paid any rent to this man and it makes me extremely tearful when I think how amazing that really is.”
Sean also said his car, which he called his ‘beautiful Jenny’, had also been seized by the DVLA due to it having no tax.
“Was it all worth it? Yes! If I’ve saved one life then yes,” the Manchester actor went on.
He also said he has set up Only Facts Television and plans to “work really head to build a new life.”
Sean starred in Corrie as bad boy Callum between 2014 and 2015.
He went on to in military drama Our Girl as Fingers but was killed off in series four.
