Brooks is 'honoured' over 'Enders return
Charlie Brooks feels "honoured" to have been asked to return for a special episode of EastEnders in a tribute to the late Mike Reid.

Brooks played Janine Butcher, the daughter of Reid's character, until she quit in 2004.

The actress has agreed to join a host of former EastEnders stars, including Patsy Palmer and Sid Owen, to shoot funeral scenes for Reid's character Frank Butcher.

Brooks said: "I was honoured to be asked. I’m really looking forward to it. Patsy Palmer’s going back and Sid Owen’s going back.

“It’s going to be bizarre seeing everyone again.”

Reid died after suffering from a heart attack at his Spanish home in July at the age of 67.

The scenes will be aired in a week of special episodes next year, but it has not been revealed how Frank will die. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
