Series 4, Episode 7 - Mike Reid

A celebration of the life and times of Mike Reid, the East End boy who started out on the wrong side of the law before bursting onto our screens as a stand-up comedian and ultimately becoming one of Britain's best-loved TV characters - Frank Butcher from EastEnders.

Further details

Mike Reid

The parallels between Mike's life and that of his alter ego Frank are uncanny - from disastrous business ventures to personal tragedy. Mike's story is far more traumatic than any soap opera and it is told with great honesty and affection by the people who knew him best - his family and friends.
