The cast - Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc - have been teasing us with group selfies and cryptic tweets for weeks, and last week a source told Deadline that a new one-off episode had been confirmed.

Heart caught up with David Schwimmer - who plays Ross Geller - ahead of his new Sky One show Intelligence and asked about the rumours.

Sadly, though, he held his heart close to his chest, saying: "I wish there was something I could share with you that was official, but I can't.

And when pressed about whether he would be up for a reunion, he cryptically replied: "I don't know. It depends what exactly you're talking about."

His words come just weeks after the whole gang broke the internet with their first known picture together since the series aired.

Jennifer Aniston's shared the pic to Instagram alongside the caption: "And now we’re Instagram FRIENDS too. HI INSTAGRAM 👋🏻".

Speaking about the show, Nick, who wrote the sitcom, said: "It's a work place sitcom set in GCHQ - some people are saying it's Homeland meets the office. It deals with some of that subject matter in a banal way."
