The creator of Friends has revealed how the audience reaction to Monica and Chandler hooking up in London, changed the whole course of the television series. 

Marta Kaufman explained how that was meant to be a one-off but the fans reacted so favourably to it that she decided to rewrite how the rest of the series would pan out.

"We had no idea what response that was going get," said co-creator Marta Kaufman at the ATX Television Festival.

When the moment unfolded in front of a live studio audience, they were so shocked to see Monica pop up from underneath the covers with Chandler that they started screaming, and filming had to be stopped."

She added: "We thought it was going to be funny and we were going to get rid of it.

"Suddenly the audience told us they had been waiting for that and we had to rethink how we were going to keep going and change the relationship."

Fans of the popular television show, which ran for a decade, told the creators loud and clear that this was they moment they had been waiting for and thus the relationship took centre stage, taking over from Ross and Rachel. 

Marta had previously revealed that Monica and Joey had initially been intended as the main couple on Friends because "they just seemed the most sexual of the characters".

This got us thinking how much we LOVE Monica and Chandler as a couple and the series would not have been the same without some of their best bits…


The one when Chandler admitted his love for Monica

The one where Phoebe found out

The one where they got engaged

The one where they adopted the twins

Basically any episode when they were THE MOST adorable couple ever..

Ever since the hit sitcom finished over ten years ago, there have been constant rumours surfacing that a Friends reunion could finally take place.

But it seems Courtney Cox squashed all our reunion hopes, when the actress said “its not gonna happen.”

Courtney was appearing on American chat show, The Late Show with David Letterman when questioned on the possibility of a reunion. But the 49-year-old actress revealed it was too difficult to organise, as everyone is busy with their new schedules.

“It doesn’t happen. I mean, I can get the girls to come, maybe Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc cancelled last time, Schwimmer lives here, so it’s just not going to happen.”

As heart-breaking as that is to hear, we can still dream that our six favourites might get together some day in the future.
