The long-awaited Friends reunion is officially almost here! Ahead of the episode, which is set to stream on HBO Max from 27 May, the Friends cast have been discussing what they reckon their characters would be up to in 2021, more than 26 years after the show first aired - and their answers are pretty accurate.

Speaking exclusively to PEOPLE, Jennifer Aniston kicked things off by speculating on where Rachel would be today. "I would like to have maybe started a clothing line of my own, and it's sort of a small franchise. Like a Nili Lotan. And I live in New York City on the Upper East Side," she revealed.

Courteney Cox added that Monica would be just as competitive as ever, saying, "I always just feel like Monica would be doing something competitively with other mothers and trying to outdo them. Whether it's the bake sale at school or something. I mean, she'd be so annoying. She'd be at the head of the PTA or something." Honestly, we can picture it now.

Meanwhile, Lisa Kudrow reckons Phoebe would be "living in Connecticut with Mike and their kids, and she's in charge of the arts program for the school," adding that she's "the advocate for her kids because they're different like she was". Adorable.

Mathew Perry went on to add that Chandler would be "a wonderful father" to his and Monica's kids, as well as "a wonderful comedy writer".

Matt LeBlanc's answer was textbook Joey, with the star revealing that his character "would have opened a chain of sandwich shops", with Matthew Perry adding, "and eaten all the sandwiches." Sounds about right to us.

Plus, David Schwimmer reckons Ross would be in on the sandwich action too, saying that "he would've invested in Joey's sandwich shop and lost a lot of his savings for his kids," as well as "playin' with the bones" as a paleontologist, of course.

"[A] dinosaur-themed sandwich shop," Matt jokingly added. "Bronto-burger."

Excited to see the Friends cast back together again? There's not long to wait! 'Friends: The Reunion' will be streaming on HBO Max from 27 May. Check out the trailer here:
