Could we BE any more relieved?

After ten years of being there for us, Friends left our screens in 2004 – leaving a Central Perk shaped hole in our hearts – and we’re still not over it.

Yes it may have been 14 years since Chandler, Rachel, Ross, Monica, Phoebe and Joey made their last appearances but it still feels like it was just yesterday.

We’re still deeply invested in Rachel and Ross’ tumultuous relationship, we’ve never given up hope on Parker (Alec Baldwin) coming back into our lives, and are we the only ones confused by our feelings for Ben now that he’s grown up and starring in Riverdale?

But Friends made news for the wrong reasons two years ago when it was reported that Australian model Elle Macpherson regretted her season six cameo, playing Joey's roommate Janine Lacroix for five episodes.

This week, the 54-year-old set the record straight, opening up to news.com.au about her remarks and how they were actually taken out of context.

'I never said I regretted appearing in Friends,' Elle explained. 'What I said was, had I known how successful it was before going [on], I think I would have chickened out because it was such an iconic show and I probably wouldn’t have felt up to the job.'

She continued: 'But fortunately I went, I took a risk, I didn’t know how big of a risk I was taking, and I had the most incredible experience.'

Well that's that.

Could we BE any more relieved?
