The highly-anticipated Friends reunion episode will air on 27 May

Matthew Perry was comforted by co-star Jennifer Aniston as he burst into tears whilst filming the trailer for the upcoming Friends: The Reunion episode.

The actor’s character, Chandler Bing, famously said that he could not cry, which left his wife Monica Geller with the difficult task of making Chandler cry.

The 51 year-old actor proved he can shed a few tears in real life when he broke down while filming the one-off Friends reunion episode.

The star welled up, before the actor reminisced about his time on Friends.

The upcoming episode will air next week on 27 May via HBO and HBO Max.

The teaser of the new Friends episode was a trip down memory lane for the actors, as they filmed the one-off episode at the familiar Stage 24 at Warner Bros. Studios in Los Angeles.

The introductory scene immediately takes viewers back to the past as Jenifer Aniston sits down next to Cox and LeBlanc on their old sofa for a game of trivia.

The American sitcom ran from 1994 to 2004 for a a total of 10 seasons. Viewers were devastated when the popular show came to an end.

Now fans can’t seem to control their excitement for the upcoming Friends reunion episode.

On Twitter, one user wrote: “Vibe check we’re all crying uncontrollably right?”

Another fan seemed to be counting down the days until the episode airs.
