Matthew Perry honoured with heartbreaking tribute at the 75th Emmy Awards

The Friends actor sadly passed away in October, aged 54

Three months after his tragic death left millions of Friends fans all over the world heartbroken, actor Matthew Perry has been honoured at the 75th Emmy Awards.

The 54-year-old on-screen funny-man was sadly found dead in a hot tub at his home in Los Angeles on Saturday 28 October.

Since his death, both fans and friends of Perry - famed for playing Chandler Bing on the nostalgic 90s sitcom - have paid tribute to his illustrious career, including his five Friends co-stars, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Jennifer Anniston, Matt Le Blanc and Courteney Cox.

Kudrow (who plays Phoebe Buffay) thanked the late star for 'all I learned about GRACE and LOVE through knowing you' in an emotional Instagram statement.

Schwimmer (Ross Geller) said of his castmate: "You had heart. Which you were generous with, and shared with us, so we could create a family out of six strangers."

Perry was found dead at his Los Angeles home back in October.

Anniston (Rachel Green) described her beloved friend as her 'little brother', whilst Matt Le Blanc (Joey Tribbiani) said their time on the show side-by-side was 'among the favourite times' in his life.

And Cox - who played Perry's on-screen wife Monica Geller - shared several snaps of their time together on Instagram, writing: "I am so grateful for every moment I had with you Matty and I miss you every day."

Three months following the shocking news of his death, much-loved Hollywood star Perry was honoured last night in a tear-jerking tribute at the 75th Emmy Awards.

During the In Memoriam segment of the prestigious award show - which honours those in the entertainment industry who have died within the last year - singer Charlie Puth broke into the legendary Friends theme-tune to honour Perry.

Joined by singer-songwriter duo The War and Treaty, Puth performed his song 'See You Again', which was written to pay tribute to actor Paul Walker for the 2015 film, Furious 7.

Attendees to the star-studded soiree and those watching from home then saw pictures of all the big-name talents we've lost in the last year, including actors Leslie Jordan, Angela Lansbury and Brooklyn 99 favourite, Andre Braugher.

Towards the end of the segment, however, the mood in Peacock Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles being even more sombre, as the trio of musicians broke into a slowed-down version of 'I'll Be There For You', by The Remembrants.

"Charlie Puth singing the Friends theme song for the ‘in memoriam’ at the Emmys?! Are you trying to make me sob?", one fan wrote on Twitter last night.

A second went on: "Charlie Puth singing the Friends theme song just for him. I’m sobbing. Matthew Perry you are so loved."
