Comedy Central, home to Friends re-runs in the UK, organised the Friends Fest event in east London last month to celebrate the show’s 21st birthday. From September 16 to September 20, The Boiler House on Brick Lane was transformed into a temporary Friends immersive experience featuring a full-scale recreation of Monica’s apartment, a replica of the fountain from the show’s iconic opening sequence and an exhibition of original props and memorabilia.

Yesterday it was announced that Friends actor David Schwimmer has been cast in Morning Has Broken, the forthcoming Channel 4 sitcom set in the world of daytime TV created by Nighty Night‘s Julia Davis.
