Joey - While he's a beefy guy, he's never shown pumping iron in the original series. This all changes in 2016, in a world where "How you doin'?" doesn't suffice. Expect daily shirtless selfies and constant screams of "JOEY DOESN'T SHARE PROTEIN SHAKES".

Ross - Instead of boring his eye-rolling friends with palaeontology facts, Ross heads over to the one place on Earth where people actually listen to him: Twitter. He's still wearing leather trousers, though.
2 of 10
Rachel - She'd never make the transition from series one spoilt brat, instead becoming a YouTube beauty queen and showing off her flurry of new threads to the adoring masses.
3 of 10
Monica - As the ever-anxious clean freak of the gang, Mon's life would be far more efficient as a Roomba hoover. As long as the writers don't include any episodes featuring steps, she'd still be a mainstay in the show.

Chandler - Finally, Chanandler Bong finds the perfect outlet for his round-the-clock humour: as a Vine star. He uploads constantly, despite the fact that he has exactly one follower (Janice).
5 of 10
Janice - Famed for her reaction of 'Oh. My. God.', Janice would be much better utilised as a sentient Emoji, walking around New York as the human embodiment of surprise (silently this time, though. Please).
6 of 10
Gunther - No more Mr. Nice Guy in 2016, no siree. As a nu-age Barista/Caffeine Artist, Gunther's snarkiness is pushed into overdrive. Ever coffee on the menu is served in a plant pot, and decorated with a piece of emotionally abusive latte art.
7 of 10
Pete - UFC is huge in 2016, and Pete takes advantage of this fact, becoming one of the most famous, respected athletes in the world. His star power means that Monica ends up staying with him, and the show is much, much worse as a result.
8 of 10
Richard - Same old, but his moustache is way more cultivated and loopy. He spends most of the show waxing his flavour-saver and fiddling with its curls, lending him a far more sinister, old-timey villain air than ever before.
9 of 10
Mike - Will always be Mike, because MIKE IS FOREVER.
