David Schwimmer has revealed that the role of Ross Geller on Friends is the "best job" he has ever had.

The actor appeared as the paleontologist in the hit comedy for ten years, until it came to a close in 2004. Speaking on BBC Breakfast, Schwimmer confessed that the six leads have not been together since finishing.

Schwimmer said: "It's something that I will forever be grateful for. First of all, it was the best job to ever have. The actual work on set was so much fun, and the collaborative spirit of the show - not only between the actors, but with the writers and the directors... hands down, the best job I've ever had."

On spending time with his former co-stars, who included Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox, the 44-year-old said: "The person I'm most in touch with is coincidentally Matt LeBlanc, who is doing a show here now - Episodes.

"But I live in New York and everyone else lives in Los Angeles. I don't think we've all been in the same room since the show ended. We have such different lives - we're all scattered, we have families now... it's hard."

Scwimmer became a father for the first time seven weeks ago, when his wife Zoe Buckman gave birth to "amazing" daughter Cleo.
