It's been more than 17 years since Ross, Rachel, Joey, Monica, Chandler and Phoebe had us glued to our television sets.
Friends was the show that made them all stars, but they have all continued to find success after the show had finished, to varying degrees.
The show was historic in more ways than one, as it gave the stars – David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Matt LaBlanc, Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry and Lisa Kudrow – continued worldwide success and A list status.
The show was also historic in ensuring that the cast continued to profit from its runaway success, and nearly two decades later the cast continue to make some serious money from the royalties and worldwide syndication of the show
The studio behind the award winning sitcom, Warner Bros, brings in an incredible $1billion dollars (£7million) every year from the syndication rights.
The cast negotiated a deal that ensured that they'd receive 2% of the profits – which is for each member of the Friends gang a whopping $20million (£14.1million) dollars a year.

Jennifer Aniston is undoubtedly the most famous face out of the group and also the richest.
