Former EastEnders star Harry Reid shares heartwarming sign language video

Harry left the soap last year

Former EastEnders star Harry Reid has shared a heartwarming video of himself being taught how to say his name in sign language.

Harry posted the video on his Instagram page.

He captioned the post: "Quick shootout to my first lesson in possibly the most beautiful language - sign.

"A few years ago I was approached by two young ladies who wanted to teach me to spell my name.

"One of the most heartwarming moments I have ever experienced, their faces when I got it right melted my heart.

"Hopefully this language becomes more ingrained in children's education, it would be amazing for it to be the norm instead of a speciality.

"Happy #humpday #signlanguage #fans #beautiful."
