Just when you thought 2020 was all doom and gloom, Amazon have dropped a Friends advent calendar and it's available to pre-order now.

'The One With The Surprises' contains over 40 trinkets over 25 days counting down to Christmas, including gift tags, ornaments and Friends-inspired recipe cards. While it's unclear which recipes you'll get, our bets are on Rachel's questionable Thanksgiving trifle, Ross' infamous moist-maker sandwich, and hopefully some of pro chef Monica Geller's best dishes.

A 'Holiday Armadillo surprise' is also included in the calendar, which we're desperate to see.

It's set to be released on October 27th in time for Christmas, but due to the show's huge fan base across the globe, it's expected to sell out fast - so we recommend ordering now if you're a die-hard Friends fan (or know someone who is).

Even better? For a limited time, the advent calendar is on sale for under £20.

The calendar comes from Insight Editions, who are selling a whole host of Friends memorabilia on Amazon, including the Official Friends Cookbook and a Friends Journal.&qid=1597845180&s=books&sr=1-2&linkCode=ll1&tag=graziadaily00-21&linkId=9c6d513fa8797ff11d8b80be996374b3){href='' target='_blank' rel='noopener noreferrer'}

The advent calendar will hopefully cheer up fans of the US TV series, who were left disappointed when filming of the hotly anticipated reunion was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic this year.

The one-off episode was announced in February and was set to air in May on HBO Max streaming service, before production was halted. It's now unclear when we'll be able to watch David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry together again, as filming dates are yet to be determined.

Jennifer Aniston, who is set to reunite on screen with her ex-husband Brad Pitt for the first time in 19 years this month, has remained optimistic about the delay in filming, telling Deadline earlier this year, 'It's going to be super. You know what? This has also given us more time to make it even more exciting and more fun than it would have been.

'So I choose to see it as the glass is half-full that it got postponed. Look, we're not going anywhere. You're never going to get rid of Friends, sorry. You're stuck with us for life, guys.'
