Where would we be without the support of our favourite pal.
We asked the Derbyshire TImes followers on Facebook to tell us who their best friends are and why.
Kayleigh Raynor gives a shout-out to Sasha Michelle and Kayleigh Burton who she trusts with her life. “Sasha helped me bring my son into the world. Kayleigh has been there for me in my darkest hour. Both know my deepest fears and mistakes and love me nonetheless,” she says in her post.
Jono Williams writes: “Stephen Harding is my best friend. I couldn’t have chosen anyone better to be friends with.”
Angie Angelina Bond says that Isla Selway is her BFF (best friend forever). “Had the pleasure of being her bridesmaid. And was her birthing partner at the birth of her son,” she comments.
5. Chalk and cheese
Sharon Dudley writes: "God knows why we're BFF (best friends forever) Jayne Elizabeth, we're like chalk and cheese, you like cleaning, i don't, you sing in a choir, I like heavy rock, you can handle your drink, I can't, but I love you; we'll always have each other's backs."

8. Walking angel
Molly Jarvis says: "Brooke Rampersaud - my best friend since day one. I couldn't have chosen anyone better to be friends with. She's never let anyone or anything get in her way and she's such an inspiration to me! She knows how to cheer me up when I feel like giving in! She never faults me in any way at all, she's a walking angel. I love her so much."
