Goodbye to old Friends

Star 'heartbroken' as show ends

Jennifer Aniston says she's devastated about the imminent end of Friends.

She and the rest of the cast have taped three episodes in the eighth, and reportedly final, series of the hit sitcom.

But despite official denials that the show's fate has been sealed, Aniston told America's TV Guide Online: "It's heartbreaking."

"If I think about it, it chokes me up to realize that this will be over. It's been a pretty intense eight years for this group of people, experiencing a lot together. It's a major crossroads we're at together in our lives. So it's very, very sad."

This is the show that celebrated the launch of Nick Helm's album in 2016, and has previously been unseen by anyone who was not in the O2 Forum Kentish Town that night.

With typical hyperbole, the show is described thusly: 'Under-rehearsed, under-prepared and under pressure, Nick and his band somehow managed to pull together the greatest show in the last 27 years of living memory. That show went down as a thing of legend, often spoken about by weary travellers around campfires, but thought to have been lost to the sands of time forever.'
