You know you’re best friends when…

To celebrate magical musical Wicked, we've taken inspiration from BFF's Glinda and Elphaba and written something extra-special about friendship. Can you relate?

You know you're best friends when…

You finish each other's...

...sandwiches? Sentences? Whether it's sharing food or the same train of thought, it basically means you're best friends for life.

You tell each other e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g

Whether it's that you're scared about starting that new job, that the guy you kissed last night had lips as dry as sandpaper, or that you polished off a party-sized pizza all by yourself, this is your go-to person for life advice. And vice versa.

You'd drop everything to be there for them

Even if it means missing that hair appointment you waited MONTHS for, you're there. "If you need me, call me, no matter where you are, no matter how far..." and you get the picture.

You can make each other dissolve into giggles with just one look

Nobody else knows why you're laughing - expect a lot of "so what's so funny?" glances in your direction.

No, strike that. You can tell each other e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g with just one look.

Time to leave the party? One look. That's all it takes.

Road trips are the best thing ever

Who else would crank up the volume on Whitney Houston and sing at the top of their lungs with you? No one, that's who.

You know all her secrets

Her parents might not know that she lost her virginity in their bed while they were downstairs watching Family Fortunes, but you sure do!

Phone calls with her last forEVER!

Hours, days, weeks, years - there's never enough time for you to catch up on everything. And you never, ever run out of things to say.

You've always known who your Maid Of Honour / first child's godmother would be

Well, duh!

You've seen each other at your worst...

...and vice versa. And you know what? It made absolutely no difference to how you feel about each other.

You're her biggest fan

Seriously though, you're like her own personal cheerleader. Whether she's scored a big promotion or won a rosette for her oh-so-fluffy Victoria Sponge, you just can't wait to tell everyone about it.

Life is better when you're together

Sure, you can handle time apart - but you can't help thinking "oh em gee, she would have found this so funny!" when you're out without her

She's your ultimate dance partner

In your heads, you're like Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland, sassing it up on the dance floor. Who cares about the reality?

Staying in is just as much fun as going out

"You want to grab our duvets, stick on a romcom and eat cheesy pasta until we're both sick? Sounds like the best plan ever!"

You know she's always got your back

If she runs into your most evil ex, they are in serious trouble. And vice versa.

She's the one your future partners have to impress

Forget the parents, they're easy. If he / she can't get on with your BFF, it's basically over before it even begins.

She's the one you want to experience everything with…

You really hope you have babies at the same time so THEY can be best friends too, you know? That sort of thing.

She's changed your life… for good

Who can say if you've been changed for the better? But, because you knew her, you have been changed for good.

Together you can do anything

You can even try defying gravity - because, together, no one can bring you down.

**Does this sound like you and your BFF? Then why not treat her to a fun, glamorous night out at Wicked, the award-winning musical that tells the incredible untold story of the witches of Oz. **

It's time to try defying gravity together and head to see the show together this winter. On 8 times a week, there's absolutely no excuse - we guarantee it'll be the best Christmas present ever!
