Driving in a golf buggy, James joined Matt Le Blanc, 53, Jennifer Aniston, 52, Matthew Perry, 51, Lisa Kudrow, 57, Courteney Cox, 56, and David Schwimmer, 54, as they sang Friends’ iconic theme tune I’ll Be There For You, before Jen revealed she still wears her character Rachel’s clothes as well as Monica’s.

The segment started with Lisa (Phoebe) and Courteney (Monica) flagging James down for a ride as he cruised around Warner Bros studios ahead of filming the reunion. 

As he tried to film his intro, he was interrupted once again, this time by Jennifer (Rachel) and Matt (Joey) who hopped onto the golf buggy.

Matthew (Chandler) and David (Ross) also stopped the comedian in his tracks as they got onto the backseats of the automobile.

The group headed to Central Perk where James asked Matt: ‘How does it feel being in this set?’

Matt said: ‘I didn’t anticipate being on set was going to hit me, we spent a lot of time on these sets. Some of it happened on camera but some of the funniest times happened between us that never made it to TV. The whole world never saw that. 

‘These six people mean the world to me, except Schwimmer, him not so much.’
