The Friends reunion is around the corner, and we're now been treated to a first look at the highly anticipated show.

Friends stars Jennifer Anniston, 52, Matt LeBlanc, 43, Courtney Cox, 56, Lisa Kudrow, 57, Matthew Perry, 41, and David Schwimmer, 54, have reunited for a special one-off reunion episode.

The news that the stars would reunite was confirmed last year, and now a trailer has dropped ahead of the episode's release on May 27.

In the trailer, all five main characters reunite in emotional scenes as they revisit their old set, their old storylines and their old outfits.

It looks like the reunion will also see the cast recreate some of their most iconic scenes, including the quiz that determined who would get Monica and Rachel's apartment, as well as the moment Phoebe finds out Chandler and Monica are sleeping together: "My eyes! My eyes!".

There's also a catwalk where the iconic outfits from the show are displayed, including Ross' Armadillo costume and Rachel's pink bridesmaid dress.
