It may have been cancelled back in 2004, but Friends remains one of the most widely watched sitcoms in history. Now, thanks to an American auction house, fans will be able to buy a bit of television history for themselves.

Pieces of memorabilia up for sale from the TV show include the Golden Yellow frame from Monica’s apartment door – estimated to fetch in excess of £1000 – as well as the iconic orange couch from the gang’s favourite coffee house, Central Perk. Famous bottoms to have graced the couch include Bruce Willis (‘The One where Ross meets Elizabeth’s Dad’), Julia Roberts (‘The One after The Superbowl’) and Reese Witherspoon (‘The One with Rachel’s Sister').

The props form part of a larger auction, entitled ‘Icons of Hollywood’, with other featured items including Judy Garland’s gingham dress and ruby slippers from the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz.

Friends originally hit TV screens back in 1994 and ran a record-breaking 236 episodes before saying farewell in 2004. Re-runs of the show continued to be aired on E4 until autumn 2011, after which it was syndicated to satellite channel Comedy Central.

The ‘Icons of Hollywood’ auction takes place from the 15- 16th December in Beverley Hills, with opportunities to bid online. For further information and previews of other items to be included in the auction take a look at the Profiles in History auction site.
