Ex-EastEnders Ben Mitchell actor Harry Reid takes a puff on a HUGE joint for '420 Day'

EX-EASTENDERS star Harry Reid took a puff on a huge joint as he celebrated 420 yesterday.

The former Ben Mitchell actor, 28, held the giant cigarette in a video posted on Instagram and took a puff to mark “Weed Day” – which falls on April 20 every year.

Weed users celebrate the smoking of cannabis on April 20, with the digits coming from the American way of laying out dates.

He captioned the video: "Throwback. Happy 420."

Then in the next slide of his story he shared a "420 giveaway", which included a herb grinder and an ashtray.

Reid joined EastEnders in 2014 as Phil Mitchell's son Ben.

He played the role for over three years until making his last appearance in January 2018.

The role is now played by Max Bowden.

Harry later appeared on the fifth series of E4's Celebrity Coach Trip in 2019.

Hundreds of British pot smokers attended Hyde Park on 420 yesterday amid fresh calls to legalise cannabis.

Police officers were seen patrolling the park which was full of joyous locals.

Youngsters were left to gather in large groups to smoke together with some wearing marijuana-themed sunglasses and hats.

420 day has become synonymous with cannabis culture.

It is a day half of celebration and half a call to action – calling for the decriminalisation of the drug.
