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 hasn't been the best year for the love lives of the One Direction lads, but we're hoping one couple can survive the distance.

Back in March, Zayn Malik quit the band following allegations he had cheated on his fiancée Perrie Edwards with a fan in Thailand, while just a week beforehand, Louis Tomlinson called his quits with his girlfriend of four years, Eleanor Calder.

Showing he's not about to let all the negativity get him down, Liam Payne recorded a brilliant video with his longtime girlfriend Sophia Smith last night, taking off the iconic Friends scene in which Rachel tells Ross they are "SO OVER." 

We have to say, Liam's Ross Gellar impersonation is pretty damn impressive…

 

I love this app aha #friends #ross #Rachel

Liam and Sophia have clearly been making the most of their free time together, as One Direction enjoy a break from touring for a few weeks.

The band finished up the Australian and Asian legs of their On The Run tour last month, and have a clear schedule until kicking off the first of their European gigs next month.

Over the last week, the loved-up couple have been holidaying in the south of France, where they checked out the Formula One Grand Prix in Monaco and even enjoyed a short cruise with Topshop boss Sir Philip Green and Spice Girls star Geri Halliwell.

Liam has made no secret of how smitten he still is with Sophia, often taking to social media to let her know he misses her when the pair are not together:

We reckon these two are in it for the long haul.
