Matt LeBlanc thinks a Friends reunion would be a bad idea.

He loved sandwiches, cheesy pick-up lines ("How you doin'?") and sex - of course. We're talking about Friends' heartthrob Joey Tribbiani, played so memorably by Matt LeBlanc.

Despite disappointing spin-off Joey, we're still secretly hoping for a Friends reunion so that we can hang out with our favourite telly chums once again.

But Matt LeBlanc says any type of Friends revival would be a bad idea - boo!

The actor, who now stars in BBC2's hit comedy Episodes, told Digital Spy that despite rumours of a reunion, it shouldn't be taken seriously. "Yeah, that probably won't happen. There's no plans for anything like that." He added: "Everyone seems to be talking about that these days, but nope, no irons in the fire there."

When asked if he thought a reunion was a bad idea, he said: "Personally I do. I think that show was all about a finite amount of time in six people's lives. They were out of college, but they hadn't settled down with their lives yet. Once they have moved on from that phase, that family unit has broken down a little bit. I'm sure they'd keep in touch a bit, but it wouldn't be the same."

But suppose Friends followed Sex and the City and hit the big screen? Sorry guys, Matt LeBlanc thinks fans would be disappointed in a movie.

"Everyone identifies with those characters in their own way and everyone in their own mind imagines what has become of those characters. I just think it's best to leave it at that."

I'd say Matt has a point. But it would still be amazing to see what the Friends have been up to after all these years; the show ended way back in 2004! Maybe one day the cast will change their minds about a reunion (perhaps if their bank balances get a bit low).

Meanwhile, you can watch Matt in the hilarious Episodes, set to hit our screens on 11 May. Have a look at the gallery below to get a sneak peek at the second series.
