Ride On Time Black Box
It seems like just yesterday that Friends was still on our TV screens, so we were amazed to learn the show first aired twenty one years ago! To celebrate we take a look at where Monica, Chandler, Ross, Rachel, Joey and Phoebe would be now.
We all remember that incredibly tender moment when Chandler proposes to Monica in Season six. It's amazing to think that Monica and Chandler got engaged 15 years ago and will now have been married 14 wonderful years!
They had us on tenterhooks for 12 series with a will-they-won't-they love roller coaster... And we were so happy when they finally were! After all the tears and the drama, the wedding in Vegas and having a baby together, Ross and Rachel finally realised what we knew all along- They were perfect for each other! The couple will have been properly back together for eleven years now. Hurrah!
She had her brother's triplets, was once married to a gay ice dancer and is undeniably the quirkiest of the Friends, so we were over the moon when Mike and Phoebe finally tied the knot in a beautiful winter wedding. The happy couple will have been married eleven years now!
Joey hates having to keep secrets and found it very difficult keeping Monica and Chandler's relationship under wraps before they were ready to tell the rest of the gang they're together. In keeping their relationship hush hush, Joey accidentally reveals a secret of his own! Yep, it's been 16 years since we found out about Hugsy his bedtime penguin pal! Whoops!
Pheobe's triplets are a spirited bunch. Frank Junior, Leslie Junior and and Chandler would all be sixteen years old now, and we bet they'd still be causing mayhem for their parents Frank and Alice!
Can you believe it? Ben Geller would be 20 years old now and legally be an adult! We wonder whether he'd be as big a dinosaur geek as his dad Ross? Picture: Photoshot
Ross's adorable monkey Marcel would be 20 years old! However, capuchin monkeys can live to be 30 or 40 years old, so Marcel's got a long life ahead of him yet!
Little baby Emma would be 13 years old! She was an adorable baby, and we'd love to see a picture of her now. We wonder who she takes after in the looks department?
We only knew them as babies, so it seems almost impossible to believe, but Monica and Chandler's twins would already be 12 years old!
Finally it will have been 13 years since Chandler first discovered the joy of baths! At the end of Season ten, Chandler and Monica moved out of New York to live in the suburbs and raise their children. Now that he's a father, we wonder whether Chandler's still using those blissful bubbles as a quick way to unwind and de-stress!
The first ever line in Friends was said by Monica, claiming 'There's nothing to tell...' Two hundred and thirty eight episodes later and we feel like we know the Friends crew as well as we know our own. Each episode reportedly takes five hours of filming to create a twenty two minute episode. That's an incredible one thousand, one hundred and ninety hours of Friends filming... And a whole lot of coffees from Central Perk! What do you think the first line of a comeback season would be..?
