Friends exec producer Kevin S Bright has insisted that there is "no talk" about a reunion.

Rumours of the popular sitcom's return have been denied in the past by stars including Jennifer Aniston (Rachel) and Matt LeBlanc (Joey).

"There is absolutely, 100 percent no talk about a reunion," Bright confirmed to TV Guide. "Maybe they'll find a reason one day, and obviously the reason can't be about money and things like that. Other than that, I don't think there is a reason to do it."

The producer/director also ruled out the possibility of a Friends movie, arguing that the show's format does not suit the big screen.

"It was made to be an intimate show in your living room," he explained. "It wasn't a broader show like many of the comedies today that are shot single-camera."

However, Bright did speculate on where the show's central characters might be now, claiming that each of the show's couples are "still married and living happily ever after".

"I imagine that after they had the surrogate twins, Monica (Courteney Cox) did get pregnant after all and they had a third child, so they have a wonderful family," he said. "Chandler (Matthew Perry) now owns his own number-crunching business.

"I think Ross (David Schwimmer) and Rachel... also had another child. Joey is a star. He finally got his big break."

Friends originally aired on NBC in the US and on Channel 4 in the UK, with the series finale first being broadcast in May 2004.
