If Friends was set in Derbyshire...

A group of friends burst on to our TV screens 22 years ago yet, there is still a special place in our hearts for those coffee-drinking New Yorkers. But imagine if the show had been set in Derbyshire...

The iconic opening scene dancing in the fountains would have taken place at Chatsworth House.

Forget drinking in Central Perk, for us Derbyshire folk we would be hanging out on Holmebrook Valley Perk.

When Monica isn’t cleaning she would be cooking up a storm at Stones Restaurant or Angelos.

Let’s be honest Chandler wouldn’t be called Chandler he would be Dave Bing, because this is England and everyone has a mate called Dave.

He would still do mysterious things with numbers, only it would be at the Spire Walk Business Park.

Joey would have spent the early part of his career as an extra in Peak Practice, and although he may look good with a stethoscope his catchphrase with the ladies would be ‘ay up me duck’ instead, which doesn’t have quite the same ring.

Ross would teach at Chesterfield College all the while longing to play his electric keyboard at open mic nights, but instead he just ends up doing karaoke in The Fisherman’s Rest.

Rachel would work as a fashion buyer for Zebra Menswear, but lets all remember she would have started her career at the Green Way Cafe.

And when the sun is shining on Derbyshire, Phoebe would be heard busking outside Vicar Lane Shopping Centre.

Let us know what we have missed in making The One When Friends Was Set in Derbyshire.
