LATEST: Producers of the hit show Friends have hit out at claims the six stars are set for a money-spinning reunion.

According to reports, Jennifer Aniston, MATT LeBLANC, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer, Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox met in secret before Christmas (05) and each agreed a $5 million (GBP2.7 million) deal with NBC bosses in Los Angeles, to reprise their roles in four special one-hour episodes.

But a Warner Bros spokesperson insists, "There is absolutely no truth to it. There is nothing planned of any kind."
