    Former EastEnders actor Mike Reid has died, possibly from a heart attack, at the age of 67.

    Mr Reid started out as a stand-up comedian in clubs and on cruise liners, before appearing in TV shows including Steptoe and Son, Doctor Who and Minder.

    But he became best known for his role as Frank Butcher in EastEnders.

    How will he be remembered? What is your most memorable Mike Reid moment? Did you ever meet him? Send your tributes.

    If you don't have anything to say about him then why even post?

    I imagine they'll just attach his body to a network of strings, or possibly include some zombie subplot.

    Of course they're going to kill him off.

    Who is going to have a tribute to Mike Reid? Is this on the off-chance his grand kids post on the BBC HYS?
