Audience Banned From Friends Finale

FRIENDS bosses are taking drastic measures to keep one of the most eagerly-awaited endings to a TV show secret - they're shooting the final episode without an audience.

The massively popular sitcom is finally coming to an end this year (04) after a ten year run, and bosses are determined to keep the fate of the show's six characters - played by COURTENEY COX, JENNIFER ANISTON, MATTHEW PERRY, MATT LeBLANC, LISA KUDROW and DAVID SCHWIMMER - a secret until the final episode is broadcast.

However, Schwimmer has revealed the ending of the series, which is being filmed this month (JAN04), is a positive one.

He says, "It's exactly what I had hoped.

"We all end with a sense of a new beginning, and the audience has a sense that it's a new chapter for all of the characters in their lives and it's a positive one.

"It was really funny, and we laughed and all that, but there is still something that's very hard about it."
