Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman are ditching their differences following their shock divorce two years ago (01) - by appearing together in hit TV comedy Friends.

The pair, who have little contact following their split and Cruise's subsequent relationship with his Vanilla Sky co-star Penelope Cruz, will star together in an upcoming episode of the American show - although TV bosses have decreed that their roles should be filmed separately.

Kidman explained to a friend, "I usually wouldn't do TV, but this I couldn't pass up."
