Yeah, I've seen all 354 seasons of Friends, I loved it when Joey and Monica got married in the end.

Ever lied about watching the latest TV series just so you wouldn't be left out in the group? Well, don't feel so bad, because there's plenty who do it too!

More than half of us have pretended to have watched TV shows we've never seen - to avoid being left out of conversations.

1,300 people took part in a Radio Times survey, which revealed that 676 people (52%) pretended to watch a popular show.

14% of people told fibs about watching the Netflix hit Stanger Things when in reality they had never seen any.
