Arts and Entertainment Jennifer Aniston at the Call Me Crazy premiere

The rumour mill went into overdrive last night suggesting that our old friends Monica, Chandler, Phoebe, Ross and Rachel might be about to stage a reunion.

Small Screen: Gotta have Friends

I've never seen police patrolling outside a press conference before, but there again it's not every day that the stars of Friends stop by for a chat. "The police are our biggest fans," joked Matthew Perry, who plays Chandler. "They were just there because they wanted us to sign autographs for them."

Film: Shiny and manageable, but can she cut it?

As the whiney Rachel Green in TV hit `Friends' Jennifer Aniston - along with her hairdo - has amassed a huge following. But will the fans curl up and dye after seeing her latest movie offering, wonders Ivan Waterman

Game for a scarf - at pounds 160?

Bulgari's new little silk number might cost a bundle, but guess what? It's worth it...; is it worth it?

We are all equal ... in fooling ourselves that we believe in equality

Edinburgh Festival 97: Theatre: Chicks with Flicks

In the middle of her deliciously tongue-in-cheek lecture demonstration, song (and hair) stylist Jackie Clune hits you with the hitherto hidden truth. Before the Spice quintet jumped off the rack, the original perpetrators of girl power, were, in fact, The Nolan Sisters. Not only that, the Seventies singing sibling sensation were arrested during the poll tax riots and sued for pounds 2bn by the James Joyce Estate for plagiarism of Finnegans Wake.

What's the price of a Friend? About pounds 2.5m, apparently

They may be "there for us when the rain starts to fall" but their jobs are no longer a joke and they are certainly not broke. The cast of Friends have just signed a deal for pounds 2.5m per episode.

59 things that nag at gay men (60 if you include the Pope)

That they'll look dreadful dressed as a nun

why are they famous?; courteney cox

Main Claim: Playing uptight Monica, the least popular cast member of cult sitcom Friends. Cox displays a genuine talent for being neither funny nor likeable in a show where even the pet monkey is funny and likeable. But sated with Jennifer Aniston, glossy mags have had to resort to second- best Cox, hence her arrival on the pages of Tatler and Elle this month.

Where everybody knows your name

An explosion of bars is feeding on our fantasy of the ultimate Nineties hang-out. Can they replace the pub in British affections, or are they just too trendy for their own good? asks Matthew Sweet

No newts is bad news for today's green townies

Forget sun-dried tomatoes, measles vaccinations, Jennifer Aniston's haircut, Agas, wood floors, bidets, clip-on curtains that drag on the ground, nose rings, hormone replacement therapy, post-traumatic stress disorder, fridge magnets depicting Michelangelo's David, cranberries, stencilling, butler's sinks, dented enamel colanders, lavender hedges, mobile phones, Puppies in My Pocket, camomile lawns, Shaker boxes, wonky recycled glassware, quarry tiles, antique toilet bowls, UFO-style kettles, wooden dish-racks, folk-art coat- rails, anything Tuscan or terracotta (or preferably both), or Le Creuset pots and pans, patios, bouquets of bare twigs, framed pasta, nail polish, Prozac...
