    In one clip, Matthew could be seen close to the camera and squinting as he wishes a fan named Rachel congratulations on her engagement and upcoming birthday.

    One fan wrote on Twitter: "Seriously starting to get worried about Matthew Perry, man the dude doesn't look well and in his recent "Cameo" videos he's slurring his words. Even the fact he's ON Cameo doesn't bode well for me."

    A second added: "I just watched it. Awful. Was Matthew Perry slurring his words on purpose or is that how he sounded."

    The news comes ahead of the upcoming Friends reunion special.

    LADY GAGA AND LISA KUDROW WILL PERFORM DUET DURING FRIENDS REUNION

    Lady Gaga will star in the upcoming Friends union alongside Lisa Kudrow as the pair perform character Phoebe's hit song Smelly Cat.

    Director Ben Winston confirmed that the 35-year-old pop superstar will join the sitcom actress for a hilarious rendition of the song.

    Lady Gaga is just one of many celebrities named to appear in Friends: The Reunion, which will air on HBO Max on Thursday.

    Director Ben explained her somewhat confusing cameo appearance, as he revealed that Lisa, 57, agreed to duet with a hit singer.

    "I said to Lisa, 'Would you be prepared to sing it?' and she was like, 'Yeah, that would be fun'," he explained of the Lady Gaga collaboration.

    "We went through a few names and we both agreed that Gaga, if we could get her, would be the ultimate one because she associates with and feels close to Phoebe in so many ways, as Gaga says on the show.

    "That was a really beautiful moment, and Lady Gaga jumped at the chance to do it."

    He added that the pair had barely any time to rehearse the song, and so worked it out "there and then" as the programme was being filmed.

    “We sat there with the two guitars with Lisa and her and worked it out there and then,” British producer Ben concluded.
