Holly and Phil were in their usual giddy form as they introduced the show and plugged the scenes which UK fans can also view at Sky One at 8pm. 

On the show, Phillip revealed he went to watch an episode, saying: ‘I was lucky enough to watch one episode extraordinary how it worked…

‘It didn’t get the laugh they wanted so the warm up guy stopped filming and they all sat round table in flat and rewrote the scene’.  

‘Matt Perry central to that, he would say something burst out laughing, all learned new lines in 45 seconds, if audience laughed then, then they were happy!’

Friends is arguably one of most successful sitcoms of all time, running for 10 beloved seasons and 235 episodes from 1994 to 2004, which has left fans clamoring for a reunion, and that day is finally here.

Just hours after the show hit screens, Holly and Phil were seen on the replica set, with Phoebe’s guitar in view and a backdrop of the New York street.  

The six stars – Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow and David Schwimmer – reunited on the Warner Bros. studio lot, where the show was filmed, for a night chocked full of laughs, tears and everything in between.

The special was filmed over a three-day period on the Warner Bros. lot, using the iconic fountain from the show as a backdrop for the cast’s main discussion, hosted by James Corden. 

The Late Late Show host – whose choice was quite controversial among fans – delved into the making of the show in a lively discussion.

Corden also brought over Ben Winston, who serves as showrunner on The Late Late Show, to serve as the director and producer of the reunion special.

Though the Q&A did garner some criticism for failing to delve too deeply into topics that most Friends super-fans weren’t already familiar with.

The discussion delved into familiar territory, asking about each cast member’s auditions and other tales from early in development.

Aniston revealing a producer on a show she was on while auditioning for Friends, incorrectly told her, ‘That show won’t make you a star.’ 

Series creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman also regaled fans with tales from casting, and how the idea for the show was first formed.
