On Wednesday, we thought all our Christmases had come at once when we heard the massively exciting news that the cast of Friends – Lisa Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer, and Matt LeBlanc – were reuniting.

The news was announced during the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, with NBC boss Robert Greenblatt saying, "I'm hoping all six will be in the same room at the same time, but I'm not sure we can logistically pull it off".

But before we even had a chance to get our ‘we heart Marcel’ t-shirt dry-cleaned, there was a spanner in the works in the shape of Chandler.

Matthew, who played Chandler, "will not'" attend the reunion show due to rehearsals for his West End play, The End Of Longing, which he’s written and stars in.


According to his spokeswoman, "Matthew may tape something" for the tribute to the show's creator James Burrows.

”In other words, this is not the reunion people have been hoping for," a source told* Us Weekly.*

His former co-stars are all expected to take part in the special, which is set to be aired on NBC on 21 February.
