It's one of the most iconic television shows in history and one that no amount of reruns can ruin.  

And with a Friends reunion still uncertain this looks like it will be perfect for those eager fans who want their fix.

To celebrate the sitcom's 25th anniversary, Friendsical, written by Miranda Larson, will open at the Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham in July.

It is a parody based on our favourite characters Joey, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Phoebe, and Ross.

The production will travel the nation, playing in cities like Newcastle, Blackpool, Southampton, and Croydon.

This plot for the play goes as follows: ''When Ross’ wife leaves him for another woman, he fears he will never find love again. But then Rachel runs back into his life…will he end up with his one true love?''

It continues, ''Joey and the gang take on naked Thursdays, a power cut, and a dinosaur convention and there’ll be original songs such as ‘(He’s her) Lobster!’, ‘Richard’s Moustache’ and ‘You’re Over Me? When Were You Under Me?’''

It sounds AMAZING.

The full casting and crew for Friendsical will be announced soon but in the meantime, we're going to re-watch every episode to get geared up for this fantastic show.

Anyone who's everyone watched Friends back in the day. It remains one of the most popular shows of all time, spanning 10 seasons and earning millions of viewers per episode.

The lead actors became stars overnight after the show began airing in the early 1990s, and it's no surprise they wanted to keep some mementos after a decade of working on the project together.

Lisa Kudrow has shared a photo of the gift which Matthew Perry gave her after they wrapped up filming, and it's UNREAL.

Matthew bagged Monica's cookie jar for Kudrow, who played Phoebe Buffay on the classic sitcom. The instantly recognisable prop now sits in the star's home, where she probably puts her granny's infamous Nestlé cookies.

The 55-year-old showed the jar to her 1.6 million followers on Instagram, and Friends fans freaked out, as predicted. She captioned the snap; "My wrap gift from Matthew Perry…”ooh, look at the time, I’ve gotta go.”" BLESS HER.

Lisa had previously explained the tale behind Matthew's choice of present to Comedy Central.

"It’s this cookie jar that was in Monica and Rachel’s apartment, and there’s a clock face on it,’ she began. "He gave it to me because… I had a scene where I was supposed to say, “Ooh, look at the time, I gotta go!”" she said.

"Well, I wasn’t wearing a watch. Because we’d rehearsed it but no one thought about it. As we were shooting, and the audience was there… it was coming up and I was like, uh oh, I’m about to say, “Look at the time.” I don’t see a watch… there’s no clock anywhere…"

She continued the story;

"So I point to the cookie jar and say, “Look at the time, I gotta go!” So afterwards Matthew Perry went, “Did you point to the cookie jar and say ‘look at the time’?” It was the dumbest fix, so lame… and then David Crane came over and said “what are you looking at?”’

"It was so stupid of me… that’s my fix! He asked Warner Bros, he got special permission and he gave that to me." Awww, gowan Matthew. What a great pal.

Matt LeBlanc was also asked about props which he stole on the show, and he revealed he took the Magna Doodle on the back of Chandler and Joey's door for an electrician who drew the artwork for every episode;

LeBlanc, who played Joey Tribbiani on the show, also revealed that he keeps the foosball from Chandler and Joey's foosball table in his tool kit.

We'd probably have tried to leave the show with the entire of Monica Geller's apartment and the contents of Rachel's wardrobe.

We absolutely love all of these nostalgic on-set Friends stories, give us more please?

Former Friends actor Matthew Perry has been battling addiction for many years, but his fans are worried about his welfare after his latest tweet.

The 49-year-old's weight has hugely fluctuated over the years of his substance abuse, with reports of pancreatitis after his Vicodin addiction and use of methadone, amphetamines, and alcohol. 

He entered rehab in 1997, 2001 and 2015, the BBC reported. He also told that publication in 2016 that he barely remembered filming three seasons of Friends.

He tweeted this morning; "I got kicked out of therapy today," leading many fans to worry that he's slipping back into substance abuse.

The post comes only five months after he tweeted in September that he had spent three months in hospital to undergo surgery to repair a ruptured bowel.

He told his followers, "Three months in a hospital bed. Check."

He spoke to ABC News in 2018, saying; "Mostly it was drinking and opiates. I think I was pretty good at hiding it from my Friends co-stars but eventually people are aware."

The actor says he has used his abuse issues to aid fellow addicts, telling The Hollywood Reporter:

"I've had a lot of ups and downs in my life and a lot of wonderful accolades, but the best thing about me is that if an alcoholic comes up to me and says, 'Will you help me stop drinking?' I will say, 'Yes. I know how to do that.'" 

We wish him a healthy recovery, and hope that he's taking care of his mental health too.

Back in 2007, actor pals Benedict Cumberbatch (AKA Bumblesnuff Crimpysnitch) and Tom Hardy hadn't yet hit the big time.

When PopSugar found an old video from over a decade ago of their pair giving an interview, thank God they didn't keep it to themselves. It's gold.

The clip premeditates their media training, marriages and dapper outfits, and the pair are visibly nervous having a natter in a pub garden of all places.

Before we saw the video, we had major lust for Tom Hardy, but now it's reached dizzying new heights.

The awkwardness of Benedict is also more pure than our souls will ever be; the duo crack jokes with each other throughout the interview, which was to promote their DVD, Stuart: A Life Backwards.

They make an effort to try and explain the plotline of the flick, but pretty much fail, all in the cutest way possible of course.

Despite their apparent comfort with each other, Stuart: A Life Backwards was genuinely their first acting project together.

The acting pair didn't work together again for four years, until the remake of Tinker,Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Thank God that project had a bigger budget, is all we can say…

Age has been kind for Hardy and Cumberbatch, we desperately hope 2019 will be the year for their third collaboration. We want on-screen MAGIC, mmkay?

If you want to feel VERY old, this is the news story for you.

Do we remember Rachel Green's adorable baby Emma? The toddler was played by twins Noelle and Cali Sheldon 15 years ago, and they're all grown up now.

The pair posted a photograph to Instagram for their sweet sixteen, sharing a tribute of their younger selves and it's the cutest.

Noelle and her sister are looking happy and carefree at the Museum of Ice Cream; she captioned the nostalgic snap; “Happy birthday @cali.sheldon."

Cali also posted a photo of herself and her sister, writing; "My partner in crime since ’02… happy birthday noelle!" 

The twins celebrate a major milestone and have also landed a role in Jordan Peele's upcoming horror flick Us, starring Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong'o and Elisabeth Moss.

It's safe to say they haven't strayed far from acting, though a horror movie is certainly different to their silver screen baby debut.

Noelle posted the news to her Instagram alongside the film's trailer;

“The trailer for Us is out now! I put the link in my bio. So happy I got to be a part of this movie, it looks amazing and terrifying!” 

Friends ended back in 2004 and broke our hearts, but we all loved watching Emma grow up alongside her parents.

Ross and Rachel were played by Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer, and we can only hope that they've kept in touch with the twins.

We'll be honest with you; this story baffles us.

Now, we can all relate to fangirling HARD over a movie franchise, tv programme or celebrity (*cough* Michael B Jordan, AKA The Snack *cough*) but this YouTuber took things pretty damn far all on her lonesome.

Chi with a C has become a viral sensation after recreating the entire first episode scene-for-scene of famous New York sitcom Friends

Despite having zero props and costumes, and only a Macbook green-screen for company, the superfan made the pilot episode all by herself and we are IMPRESSED.

It must have taken her hours and hours of work, and we're pretty sure she was procrastinating some kind of college work but boy did she commit.

She did it all in her pyjamas too, for an…alternative…costume wardrobe. Not bad for a cast of one though, we have to say

The YouTuber uses her channel for comedy purposes, as you may have guessed.

The comedian-in-training previously turned herself into Sharon Osbourne and even recreating Thank U Next with whistles alone. Alright then, each to their own..

She's got ten seasons of Friends material to dissect should she please, she seems to have the spare time on her hands anyways.

The silly season is well underway.

Getting into the festive mood, Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal decided to prank Ryan Reynolds.

The two lads told Ryan that their Christmas party had a dress code – i.e. stick on the Crimbo jumpers.

Of course, the actor turned up to the celebration with a stunning present jumper.

Selena Gomez looks healthy and refreshed in the first photos of the star since entering a treatment facility for anxiety and depression in October.

The Wolves singer went on a fun field trip to the snow in Big Bear, California, yesterday.

The star was all smiles on her day out with friends, including her former Wizards of Waverly Place co-star Bailee Madison.

Selena wore a black outfit for her outdoor activities, striking a pose with her friends and looking healthier than ever after snow-tubing.

Gomez entered a treatment facility for anxiety and depression last October following her struggle and ongoing issues with Lupus, a disease which caused her to require a kidney transplant in 2017.

After undergoing a trip to hospital in September, the star appeared under a huge amount of strain. 

A source told E! News that Selena "started to feel super overwhelmed" but just a week after entering the treatment centre she was "already feeling better than she did last week." 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Selena Gomez (@selenagomezecu2.0) on

Since leaving her treatment programme in New York, Selena hasn't made many public outings or appearances.

She utilised dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), a form of cognitive-behavioural psychology, while receiving treatment.

The 26-year-old told Vogue in 2017 that  "DBT has completely changed my life," adding,

"I wish more people would talk about therapy. We girls, we're taught to be almost too resilient, to be strong and sexy and cool and laid-back, the girl who's down. We also need to feel allowed to fall apart."

The former Disney star seems to rely a lot on her friendships for support during times of tough mental and physical health.

During a photoshoot for a campaign, she had her friends join her on set;

"I don't know what I would be without my friends. They've saved my life, they've been there for me through the thick and thin of it all," she said in a video for SGxPUMA.

We're so glad for Selena that she has such loyal friends, and wish her all the best with her health in future.

She's truly inspiring, it can't be easy to discuss mental health under the public eye.

If you were shook by the news that Friends might be taken off Netflix in 2019 – you need fear no more. 

The streaming service has allegedly pledged one hundred million dollars to WarnerMedia for the licencing rights to the show in 2019. 

This is a massive jump from the usual 30 million dollars it has so far been paying. 

'The Holiday Armadillo has granted your wish: “Friends” will still be there for you in the US throughout 2019,' Netflix announced Monday via Twitter.

Friends ran for a full decade, between 1994 and 2004. 

The shows popularity has not waned, and was introduced to a whole new generation when it launched on Netflix. 

With 130 million people using Netflix, it's no wonder the classic show has developed a new cult audience.

Jennifer Aniston has opened up about the strained nature of her dysfunctional relationship with her late mother, Nancy Dow.

The actress describes the correlation between their maternal bond and her complex new Netflix film Dumplin', in which she plays a pushy mother and former pageant queen.

In the new movie, her daughter is plus-size and enters herself in a competition purely to make a dramatic statement regarding unrealistic beauty standards in our society.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by faniston (@queen.aniston) on

The 49-year-old actress spoke candidly to The Sunday Telegraph about the many parallels between how Dow treated her during her childhood and Dumplin's expression of mother-daughter relationships.

When asked whether the two were similar experiences, Aniston replied “Where do we start?”

“One of the reasons I really loved the mother-daughter aspect of it was because it was very similar in a way to what my mother, and our relationship, was,” Aniston told the publication.

Nancy Dow, based on Aniston's description of her, was clearly preoccupied with her daughter's appearance.

“She was a model and she was all about presentation and what she looked like and what I looked like,” The former Friends actress commented. The star endured a highly-publicised fall-out with former actress Dow.

“I did not come out the model child she’d hoped for and it was something that really resonated with me, this little girl just wanting to be seen and wanting to be loved by a mum who was too occupied with things that didn’t quite matter.”

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Stylist Magazine (@stylistmagazine) on

The actress added that she really resonated with the film's message, which encourages the audience to embrace their flaws and imperfections.

"This movie is so special because it is about stripping away those preconceived notions of beauty, trying to become individuals and not feeling that we have to live up to some unrealistic ideal that society is feeding up to us," she explained.

"My idea of beauty is, it's what makes you feel beautiful and what makes me feel beautiful are the people around me, the life that I have. And maybe a good hair day."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by F.R.I.E.N.D.S. (@_.friendspostsandmemes._) on

Aniston previously told The Hollywood Reporter in 2015 about Dow, saying; "She was very critical of me." 

Nancy wrote a biographical book in 1999 about their strained relationship: From Mother and Daughter to Friends: A Memoir, which Aniston saw as a breach of privacy.

"Because she was a model, she was gorgeous, stunning. I wasn't. I never was. I honestly still don't think of myself in that sort of light, which is fine." 

We think she's absolutely beautiful, inside and out. Dow passed away in 2016 at the age of 79, after a long illness.

We are channelling all our girl power energy into our Halloween costumes this year. There’s no better group of people to dress up with than your gals so we’ve conjured up a list of the greatest girl gangs in history.

We’ll feature girl gangs from the 1980s to modern day queens who rule the world.

The Heathers:

The 1989 flick features one of the quirkiest and (meanest) girl gangs in cinema history. Gather up the gang and rock those iconic blazers with padded shoulders, the backcombed hair and don’t forget your scrunchie.

The Original Disney Princesses:

Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Ariel and Belle are the OG Disney gals so why not step into the magical world of Disney this Halloween. Plus, you’ll certainly stand out from the crowd because there’s no doubt everyone will be dressing up as Elsa again this year.

The Barden Bellas:

Pitch Perfect is a movie that celebrates female friendship and supports people who sing ALL the time- we couldn’t love it more if we tried. The perk of dressing up as the Bellas means you can randomly sing all night long because it’s ‘part of the costume’.

Rachel, Phoebe and Monica:

Embrace that glorious 90s style by dressing up as the Friends gals with your two closest girls. We’ve always dreamed of rading Rachel’s iconic wardrobe and now we can.

Clueless:

The shops are full of plaid EVERYTHING at the moment so putting this outfit together will be simple. Find the most flawless plaid skirt suit and feel free to mutter ‘Ugh, as if’ to anyone who asks who you're supposed to be.

The Pink Ladies:

We're ending with one of the original girl gangs- the Pink Ladies. Go back in time to the 60s and channel your inner Frenchie or Rizzo with this old-school look. And remember, don’t forget your neck scarf.
