Could we BE any more excited?

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 15 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 we can’t believe how quickly the Friends children have grown up. Are we the only ones confused by our feelings for Ben now that he’s grown up and starring in Riverdale?

But it wasn’t Cole Sprouse or the news that a former employee of Robert De Niro’s company was getting sued for binge-watching the show in company time that made all the noise this week.

Instead it was the news that Friends is coming to UK cinemas.

Yes, this is not a drill.

To mark the sitcom's 25th anniversary (yes, we feel ancient too), Showcase cinemas is launching a series of Friends episode screenings, entitled 'The One With the Anniversary'.

The event will see 12 episodes screened across three dates, but which made the cut?
