Although it wasn't the Friends reunion we were all hoping for - with the chick, duck and LOADS of Joey Tribbiani pizza, obviously - the celebration of director James Burrows went down over the weekend, and 5/6 of the Friends cast gathered together 10 years later.

Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc and Jennifer Aniston were all in attendance whilst Matthew Perry sent a video message over, and here's everything you missed if you weren't lucky enough to watch it:

1. Jennifer Aniston revealed they were really good friends off screen too 

 "We fell in love with each other and wanted to hang out," she explained. "We experienced friendship, family, heartbreak, babies, everything, together. And we also had a wonderful experience with the world loving us as well." She said they all played poker in their dressing rooms off screen and for the first year of the show they would watch each episode together every week, at one another's apartments.

2. Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow ate the same lunch together every day

During the TEN YEARS that Friends filmed, Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow ate the same lunch together every day. It was a 'Jennifer' salad, which consisted of turkey bacon, garbanzo beans and basic Cobb salad.

3. The cast denied they were asked to sign a contract saying they wouldn't have sex

Lisa Kudrow explained: "'I was not asked to sign anything like that", before David Schwimmer chimed in: "Well, that was broken!"

4. The cast revealed their favourite episodes

Matt LeBlanc said his favourite Joey moment was the episode where Ross gets hit in the face with the hockey puck, Kourtney Cox said hers was 'The One With The Blackout' from the first season, where Ross is on the balcony with the cat. Jen Aniston said she loved the flashback episodes, commenting: "I always loved when we would flashback to fat Monica and Rachel pre-nose job and Ross with his afro."

5. Matthew Perry did a video message 

He introduced the rest of the cast in a pre-recorded video message, which isn't quite the same but IT'LL DO MR CHANDLER BING.

6. Jennifer Aniston had a cry

7. James Burrows explained why Ross and Rachel had to break up

"It's the same as Sam and Diane [from Cheer]", the director said. ". They flirted for a lot longer, but you have to shake it up.… If you don't fight, and if you don't get angry, you have no place to go."

8. The cast gushed over what a great director he was

Schwimmer commented: "'This man is an incredible director who helped define situation comedy in this country in the last 40 years so I love him and I'm excited to be here."

SO THERE YOU GO. Everything you missed from the Friends reunion, yo.
