It's been a* Friends*-tastic few months of news. We've had the Friends Festival, the deleted Friends scene going viral, and Phoebe Buffay aka Lisa Kudrow singing Smelly Cat on stage with Taylor Swift.

Now another Friends-related story has gone viral - an interesting fan theory about how the series could have ended - that might also freak you out.

We all know how the series actually ended - Monica moved out of her apartment and the gang gradually disbanded. But Twitter user Gareth Stranks suggested an alternative theory.

He wrote: “I’d have ended Friends by revealing it was all a meth-addled fantasy of a homeless Phoebe as she stared through the window of Central Perk.

“Every kooky aside, every episode she made everything about her, every instance of how much of an outsider she was… it all makes sense.

“All 10 seasons were merely her fevered imagination, projecting herself into the lives of the other 5. All she ever wanted was… Friends.

“The final scene would be Phoebe walking away from Central Perk, with the Ross, Rachel, Joey, Chandler and Monica characters making a reference to ‘the crazy lady who always stares at us’. They all have different names and personalities.

“Phoebe walks past a furniture store and catches her reflection in a mirror placed in the window. The name of the store? Ursula.

“Finally she returns to the park where she sleeps in front of the fountain. A broken lamp stands next to her bench. It starts to rain. From behind, we see her put up six dirty, but brightly coloured umbrellas. Fade to black.”

We're just going to have a lie down now.
