For months there has been speculation the cast would work with HBO Max on a reunion special.

And talk was ramped up last week when Perry all but confirmed the rumors when he tweeted out: 'Big news coming...'

Then Schwimmer was put on the spot about whether the famed characters - Monica, Phoebe, Rachel, Ross, Joey and Chandler - will be back onscreen together in one form or another. 

'First of all, I’m so glad I finally get to answer this question,' Schwimmer, 53, joked when asked during an an interview with Matt Baker and Alex jones on BBC's The One Show.

'I really wish I could confirm or deny, There's nothing official to report,' Schwimmer, 53, added.

Jones pressed even farther on the potential of a reunion show by asking: 'But maybe?' 

In keeping with his, and his Friends character Ross's penchant for a good one-liner, the actor shot back: 'Maybe Matthew Perry is pregnant,' in reference to the 'big news coming' tweet.
