The sofa is on an international tour to celebrate the show's 25th anniversary.

A replica of the famous settee is on tour to celebrate the show's 25th anniversary - and it is visiting Princes Street Gardens between 10am and 5pm.

Edinburgh’s busiest park will be ‘transformed’ into Central Perk, a quarter of a century after Monica, Rachel, Phoebe, Chandler, Joey and Ross first appeared on TV screens.

Members of the public can take photos sitting on the sofa on a first-come-first-served basis.
