Verne Troyer's best bits from his glittering film and TV career as he dies aged 49

The 2ft 8in actor put in a show stealing performance as the freakishly strong clone.

But his career, on and off the big screen, has won him an army of fans well beyond the popular comedy trilogy.

Verne was hilarious in 2009's Celebrity Big Brother, caused havoc with Keith Lemon on Celebrity Juice and was punched in the face by Arnie Schwarzenegger in Jingle All The Way.

We celebrate the best bits of Verne on the tragic evening when the 49-year-old actor passed away.

1. Mini-Me puts in a big performance

Verne stole the show in the beloved Austen Powers trilogy as Dr Evil's clone henchman Mini Me.

Memorable moments include his one-on-one scraps with Mike Myers and his musical duets including the hilarious Just The Two Of Us and Hard Knock Life.

The character became an instant classic when he appeared in the second film.

2. Big Brother ran-raid

Verne put in a memorable stint on Celebrity Big Brother in 2009.

Viewers were in hysterics when the foot-tall superstar RAMMED the famous diary room door in his electric scooter.

He was hauled into the diary room for a ticking off.

Verne also thrilled viewers flirting with Mutya and La Toya, getting tipsy on Champagne and calling rapper Coolio 'b****'.

3. I'll be whacked!

Verne proved he could do action as well as comedy when he grappled with Arnold Schwarzenegger in Christmas flick Jingle All The Way.

But it doesn't end well for him.

A burly henchman ends up punching the bad Santa across the room.

4. Game for a laugh

Verne gave a hilarious performance on Celebrity Juice as he took part in x-rated charades with host Keith Lemon.

The side-splitting skit saw Verne being carried around the studio and stripping off to the waist to act out Fight Club.
