His family have issued a statement.

Disney Channel star Cameron Boyce has passed away at the age of 20. His family confirmed the news to ABC last night, stating that he died from an "on-going" medical condition.

A family spokesperson said:

"It is with a profoundly heavy heart that we report that this morning we lost Cameron.

"He passed away in his sleep due to a seizure which was a result of an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated. The world is now undoubtedly without one of its brightest lights, but his spirit will live on through the kindness and compassion of all who knew and loved him.

"We are utterly heartbroken and ask for privacy during this immensely difficult time as we grieve the loss of our precious son and brother."

Cameron starred in films such as Grown Ups alongside Adam Sandler when he was a child, before making it big on Disney's Jessie and Descendants.
