Matthew Perry is a man with a ridiculous amount of talents - establishing himself as a great actor on film, theatre, and TV.

We were first introduced to the Friends gang in 1994.

Ross (David Schwimmer), Rachel (Jennifer Aniston), Chandler (Matthew Perry), Monica, (Courteney Cox), Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow), and Joey (Matt LeBlanc) burst onto our screens in September 1994. Created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, the comedy follows the friends, who live in the same New York apartment block, as they navigate their lives.

The sitcom became an instant hit.

The show propelled each cast member into superstardom, with the show winning several Emmy's during its ten-season run. The success of the show can't be denied...even the theme song, "I'll Be There for You," during the iconic title sequence is impossible to not sing along to.

The final season aired in 2004...

But the sitcom continues to be one of the most-watched TV shows of all time.

Over the years, there have been a few low-key reunions and a lot of false hope...

Apart from the occasional reunion on talk-shows, fans have had their fair share of disappointments when it comes to waiting for a Friends reunion. A fake trailer for a Friends movie trailer even went viral last year, giving superfans false hope that the sitcom was hitting the box office.

In 2018, Matt Leblanc said a Friends reunion would never go ahead.

The actor left fans heartbroken as he rejected calls for the show to return, saying the sitcom simply "wouldn't be the same" in an interview with the Mail Online. He added: "People want to know what happened to them. But it was about a finite period in a person’s life after college, before you settle down and start a family."

It's not just the cast that has shut down calls for the sitcom to return...

The show's creator Marta Kauffman, says she constantly gets "nagged" by fans to bring the sitcom back.

"Watch the old ones – there is no way we could win that. And there's no way it would be satisfying and it'll never happen. We'll never do it," she said.

At this point, it was pretty clear that a Friends reunion was never going to happen.

But, as we were finally beginning to accept we wouldn't see the gang on our TV's again, Jennifer Aniston has just gone and totally changed the game...

Speaking on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the actress gave fans a fresh glimmer of hope...

Speaking to Ellen, the star said the cast are all on board for a reunion.

Yes, you read that correctly... When asked the usual question about a potential reunion with her fellow co-stars, Aniston surprised fans, saying: "Why not? You know what, because, listen, I told you this.

"I would do it... The girls would do it. And the boys would do it, I'm sure. Listen. Anything could happen."

The actress seems very keen to get together with her former castmates...

Aniston joked that she could do a revival by herself if nobody else was up for it.

And speaking of Jen...

Who remembers when she literally broke Instagram last year when she finally got herself an account?

Jen wasted no time in giving us fans what we wanted...

She shared a selfie of herself and the rest of the Friends gang, clearing enjoying an evening together. "And now we’re Instagram FRIENDS too. HI INSTAGRAM," she captioned the post.

Things eventually calmed down after Jen's first post...

But she has been pretty consistent with her posting, and us fans have been in for a real treat with lots of wholesome Jennifer content.

She has also posted plenty of throw-backs...

Because we all love the 1980s Rachel Green!

The rest of the gang also have their own Instagram accounts...

And we simply cannot resist their wholesome reunions.

But there's now just one person missing...

And that's Matthew Perry.

Even though Matthew still hangs out with the gang...

He has never been an active user of social media.

Until now...

Matthew finally has an Instagram account!

He is yet to deliver his first Instagram post...

But he already has 1.8 million followers.

But of course, the gang gave him a very warm welcome...

Lisa Kudrow posted the cutest throwback of the 2 of them, captioning it, "Finally!!! Yay!! Can’t believe my eyes MY EYES Welcome to Instagram @mattyperry4 #friendsforlife."

Jennifer also shared her joy...

She commented on Lisa's post saying, "Yay Matty! Could you TAKE any longer?"

Remember back in 2015?

When rumours began circulating online that Matthew Perry and co-star Courteney Cox were dating?

It turned out to be false.

However while the pair have never dated, it certainly seems like Perry has always loved her.

'He has always been in love with her'.

According to US Weekly, Perry has been smitten with Cox ever since he first met her.

They said:

Matthew’s always been in love with her. Matthew has never fully been able to get over her

I wonder if the feeling was mutual...

Sadly it seems we'll never know...
