Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer wanted romance away from cameras

Friends stars David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston who played Ross and Rachel wanted their romance to continue away from cameras they revealed during the big Friends Reunion show.

The two on screen lovebirds confessed their true feelings for one another during the long awaited meet up between the stars twenty seven years on from first filming.

The stars revealed their innermost secrets in the two hour special with James Corden which is finally showing on NOW in the UK and HBO Max in the States tonight.

David who played Ross Geller in the hit show said: “The first season I had a major crush on Jen and at some point we were both crushing on each other.

“But it was like two ships passing because one of us was always in a relationship and we never crossed that boundary. We always respected that.’

“When we had breaks from rehearsal, there were moments we would cuddle on the couch. We would spoon and fall asleep on the couch … and I kept thinking, how did not everyone know we were crushing on each other?”

Jennifer confirmed: “I remember saying to David, ‘It’s going to be such a bummer if the first time you and I actually kiss is going to be on national television.’ Sure enough first time we kissed was in that coffee shop.”

“But we just channelled all our love and adoration for each other into Ross and Rachel.”

Courteney Cox admitted during the reunion show that it was probably best the two actors kept things professional in case the pair broke up during filming.

Fans couldn’t believe it after finding out their character’s relationship spilled into real life.

One said: “Of course finding out that a real life Ross and Rachel could be a possibility. ooooofffffffffff. I LOVE that! #FriendsReunion.”

Another added: “Jen Aniston and David Schwimmer actually had feelings for each other but instead of acting on it they gave it to us through Ross and Rachel! Their 1st kiss ever was on national TV! STAWWWPPP! I CAN’T!!!”

And someone else said: “OMG! After knowing they’re really attracted to each other but just channeled it via Ross & Rachel, who’s wishing David and Jen really get together now that they’re older? They’re both not married now. They may be each other’s lobster after all.
