Ellen DeGeneres staged a surprise 'Friends' reunion on her show and fans are loving it.

Ellen DeGeneres sneakily planned a surprise Friends reunion during her interview with Courteney Cox yesterday.

Cox, who played Monica on Friends, joined Ellen on the iconic Friends sofa during her interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Ellen, who is known for catching her guests off-guard, said: "I wish Lisa Kudrow was here because that would be fun". Kudrow, who plays Phoebe on Friends, then walked onstage to surprise the audience and Courteney Cox.

Kudrow joined the interview to pose for Courteney Cox's first Instagram photo. She captioned it: "Hello Instagram! I'm here with a little help from my friends".

Since its final episode aired 15 years ago, Friends has been the subject of multiple cast reunion speculations. Although Ellen didn't manage to get the full gang back together, Friends fans were overjoyed to see the mini reunion.
