Cast of Friends

Friends: Where are they now?

It's been over two decades since six Friends burst onto our television screens. We look at how they've changed.

It has literally been 21 years since Friends burst on to our TV screens and subsequently into our hearts.

The first season of the sitcom began on September 22 in 1994 and for ten years Rachel, Monica, Ross, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe made us laugh with their hilarious antics.

The show, which shone a light on the New York native's every day lives, became a cultural phenomenon and demonstrated a new era of friends becoming your family - truly cementing the notion of "I'll be there for you" which was made so famous in the opening theme song by The Rembrandts.

While the series ended over ten years ago, we are still as obsessed as ever with the cast made up of Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry.

The show was nominated for 62 Emmys and scored the gong for the Outstanding Comedy Series in 2002. Meanwhile Jen and Lisa were the only two stars from the ensemble cast to win individual Emmys for their work. And while there is still no sign of an official reunion, we'll keep crossing our fingers...

In honour of the show starting 21 years ago, we take a look at where the cast of Friends are now!
