Sean Tully revealed he’s nearly 50

Sean is trying to raise money for a flat of his own so he can bring his son Dylan to live with him.

But when he demanded Gemma and Chesney pay him the commission from his make-up pyramid scheme, he revealed his true age.

Gemma told him: “I feel about 50 today.”

And Sean replied: “Don’t – that is my next significant birthday I mean it’s in a while but even so. 

Viewers were shocked at his age

“How is it even possible that I’m going to be the big 5-0?”

Viewers were in shock at Sean’s age as he dresses like someone who thinks he’s much younger.

One wrote: “Sean can’t pressure Gemma into giving him money. She is already swamped with looking after 5 kids she shouldn’t have to feel the burden due to Sean upping his ego. Sean needs to admit to Dylan that he can’t go above and beyond for him.”

A second said: “Why does Sean want money from Gemma? Have I missed something.”

Another added: “Micheal is right Sean can’t pressure Gemma.”
