Hi I’m Valëza and I’m *slightly* more obsessed with Friends and Eastenders than your average person. If you're like me and have always wondered what would happen if the lighthearted comedy about six good pals was to collide with the ~dramatic~ world of Albert square, then look no further!
1.First thing’s first, rather than leaving Barry on their wedding day, Rachel would have married him for his money and then pushed him off the edge of a cliff.
2.Central perk would have probably been more dimly-lit, had an ~antique-chic~ style of decor, and smelled of slightly stale beer.
3.Speaking of which, Gunther would absolutely have whacked Ross over the head with an extra-large coffee cup (or the bust of Queen Vic).
4.Ross’s body would then mysteriously disappear, and he’d come back from the "dead" after spending a few months in sunny Malaga.
5.As a brunette, leopard print-loving queen, Janice would NOT be considered a whiny, melodramatic person but rather a strong and powerful force of influence within the square (okay, the Lower East Side).
6.Phoebe would have gained a reputation for her outrageously fabulous statement earrings.
7.Forget Ralph Lauren, Rachel would have had her own fashion-focused market stall with only the *hottest* garms, carefully selected by her.
8.And instead of working as a chef, Monica would have run the local cafe to such a high standard, it would become the top greasy spoon in town.
9.Hear me out – instead of Phoebe just having a romantic dream about Jack Geller, he would have actually fathered her baby at one point.
10.At least one of the gang would have a bald head – my money’s on Joey.
11.And don't ask me why, but I feel Chandler would probably be the Ian Beale to Joey’s Phil Mitchell.
12.Phoebe and David’s breakup definitely wouldn’t have gone as smoothly as it did, she would have probably waited till the day of their wedding and then jilted him at the altar.
And I am so sorry to do this, but the ending simply wouldn’t have gone down the way it did in season 10 of Friends – here’s what I think would have happened instead:
13.Ross would have indeed been too late to catch Rachel and she would have got ON the plane.
14.Just as the group had left their beloved apartment to move into a new phase of their lives, Chandler would have met his untimely death via car crash.
15.Phoebe and Mike would have become owners of The Royal Mug (aka Central Perk).
16.Joey would have moved into one of the spare rooms above The Mug and probably adopted a dog called Gherkin.
17.HOWEVER, as Friends would now technically never "end" at least the hopeful ‘doof doof’ outro would always assure us that at least this isn't the end for our favourite characters!
