RIP Frank/Mike

We manage to catch Eastenders on BBC Prime over here, and it only seems to be a week or two behind the UK broadcasts. As you may already know Mike Reid (who played Frank in Eastenders) passed away having suffered a heart attack. To people a little older than me, he was well known previous to his soap career, with a respectable career as a stand up comedian, and even a childrens TV show presenter. Previous to that, he worked as a stuntman in The Saint TV series, and the film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang!
Although his exit from Eastenders was probably a good move, his time on the show certainly bought a lighter note to many storylines.
