Our favourite Friends couple have reunited and we couldn’t BE any happier about it. Courteney Cox and Matthew Perry got together for lunch and posted a rare selfie together, much to the delight of their fans.

Courteney even used one of the show's famous quotes for the caption, “Guess who I had lunch with today….I KNOW!! Could I BE any happier? #realfriends”

The on-screen couple looked as happy as ever in the snap which sent fans and fellow cast members into a frenzy.

Jennifer Aniston, who is new to Instagram, commented on the snap, “Matty!! I love you guys.”

Lisa Kudrow, best known for playing Phoebe on the show, added, “Lucky lucky #beautifulpeople.”

Jennifer Aniston recently shared a reunion selfie with the entire cast on her Instagram account which left fans wishing for a reboot of the iconic TV series.

However, the actress doesn’t believe that would work.

She told The Ellen Show, “We would love for there to be something, but we don't know what that something is. So we're just trying. We're working on something."

"I don't want to lead people on," she responded when Ellen asked for more detail.

Speaking about getting the gang together again, the actress gushed, “We did that because we miss each other and we all happened to be in the same part of the world."

A project may or may not be in the pipeline but at least we can watch old episodes of Friends on Netflix until the cast get together again.


Friends remains one of the most iconic and easy-to-watch TV shows of all time, despite almost 25 years passing since it first aired.

The sitcom we know and love offers us relatable comedy with lovable characters, what's not to adore? It could have been a very different series, however, without one of the cast in particular.

Author Saul Austerlitz has spilled some of Central Perk's most shocking secrets to celebrate a quarter-century of the programme, including which Friend was almost cut out of the show.

According to Austerlitz's new book, Generation Friends, the one and only Jennifer Aniston herself was nearly written out of the show after a potential filming conflict emerged.

Austerlitz told Entertainment Weekly that Jennifer had already filmed numerous episodes for an upcoming comedy, Muddling Through, which was set to air on rival network CBS.

The scheduling team at NBC allegedly aired a ratings-winning stream of TV films adapted from Danielle Steel novels at the same time as Aniston's other show to avoid ditching Rachel.

Most of Muddling Through's intended target audience switched to NBC for some luxurious fluff, Aniston's career prospects with Muddling Through were annihilated.

Pretty intelligent stuff from NBC, we have to admit. Imagine Friends without Rachel Greene, her hilarious diva idiosyncracies and her 'lobster' love for Ross Gellar?

It's iconic. That violet hue adorning Monica's apartment's walls in Friends is simply unmistakable, yet also puzzling.

Often we find ourselves pondering one question during the unending reruns of our favourite sitcom (and no, it's not 'Were they on a break?'): why purple?

Yes, we love it, but it's definitely an unusual choice. Were the set designers big fans of grapes? Did they get a discount on that particular paint? Colour us intrigued!

Finally, all has been revealed. Set designer John Shaffner, the mastermind behind Monica's enviable apartment, spoke to Great Big Story about his colour choice.

"Everybody was really anxious," the accomplished production designer said of his paint decision.

One of the biggest reasons he chose that bold shade of violet was because it helped show the sitcom's personality.

"Colour is really important in establishing the show identity," he said.

John, who has also worked on the likes of The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men, said that he thought the hue would help hook viewers.

"When you switch to Friends, you saw that it was purple and you stay tuned," he noted.

Colour choice isn't the only challenge a set designer faces, though. John observed, "One of the responsibilities of a production designer is to look into the future."

One such crystal ball moment was when he included the mystery door in Monica's apartment, which wasn't opened until season eight to reveal an overstuffed closet.

"We put a door all the way up this hallway and we really didn't say where it went to. I said, 'Why don't we just wait and see where the story is taken?'" John recalled.

And we were so happy to see where it went! Monica is totally the type of person to be ashamed of a messy closet.

Reflecting on his work, the Emmy Award-winner said, "I am so lucky that I got to design Friends."
