It may be hard to believe, but Friends is celebrating its 25th anniversary.

To mark the occasion, 1,000 cinemas in the United States will be screening 12 episodes across three nights in September and October, along with previously unseen content and exclusive interviews.

Fans on this side of the pond don't have to miss out on the celebrations, however.

Lego recently announced the release of a Central Perk set, complete with Friends characters, which will be available on 1 September.

Alison Healy and Jennifer Gannon discussed the reasons for the show's enduring popularity in our TV slot.

They also talked about Louis Walsh's reaction to the end of Ireland's Got Talent.
