YouTubers are paying tribute to Disney star Cameron Boyce, who died on Saturday (6th July) at the age of 20.

Cameron passed away following a seizure brought on by an "on going medical condition", believed to be epilepsy, and died in his sleep. His family confirmed the news in a statement to ABC News. "It is with a profoundly heavy heart that we report that this morning we lost Cameron," the statement reads.

"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.”
