Of all the things we’ll be sad to see go when the Obamas leave the White House this week, perhaps the thing we’ll miss most is the Barack and Joe Biden bromance memes. Like this one of Barry O awarding his pal with the Medal of Freedom – or as the internet liked to think of it, the classiest friendship necklace ever.

But don’t cry – we’ve rounded-up a lovefest list of our fave celebrity BFF pairings, to fill the Obiden void.
Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner
While the Stark sisters have an erm… complicated, relationship, Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner’s one is pretty straight forward: they’re straight-up BFFs. The Game of Thrones co-stars have literally grown up together, so they have firm BFF credentials – but in case you were in any doubt, last year they even revealed their matching tattoos at the Emmys.
Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran
Taylor Swift and… pretty much everybody
What else do we expect from the woman literally responsible for the hashtag #squadgoals? Her vast army of friends ranges from models to actors to sportspeople to her primary school BFF. And one day, maybe, us.
Zendaya and Tom Holland
Tom Holland and Zendaya met on the set of the film Spider-man: Homecoming, where she plays Mary Jane and Peter Parker in the upcoming movie Spider-Man: Homecoming. But their friendship isn’t just for the screens – after all you know what they say: friends who dance together, stay together.
Salasi and Val
From London to Somerset!ROAD TRIP? Seeing my favourite pensioner in Wells. 😉 🏍 perfect excuse and weather to get on motorbike pic.twitter.com/37aWweLVhe

Oh Bake Off, you’ve left such a cake-shaped hole in our lives – but luckily, some of the cast have continued to hang out and warm our hearts like fresh scones. Salasi and Val are easily our fave Bake Off friendship to date. Nothing says adorable like a baking banker from London hopping on his motorbike to hang out with a pensioner in Somerset.
Ashley Benson and Shay Mitchell
To my little sis on her birthday – PLL has given me so many things I'm thankful for but you are easily at the top of that list. Having experienced something so life changing together has bonded us in a way that's impossible to describe, and I am forever grateful you were by my side the entire time (literally 😬). We have spent so many early mornings and late nights together and it's those moments, those exhausted, delirious, and hilarious moments I can't wait to look back on in five years and tell our kids about years after that. I know this next year of your life will be your best yet and I am so lucky to be along for the ride. I love you Benz and I'm so thankful you were born. – Buttah 🙌🏽🎂👭 #buttahbenzo
The five Pretty Little Liars stars are all real life BFFs (so much so that they got matching tattoos to remember each other by when they finished filming – seriously, matching tattoos are everything) but Ashley Benson and Shay Mitchell are more than just besties. They’re ‘sisters’.
Dan and Phil

YouTube stars Dan (@danisnotonfire) and Phil (AmazingPhil) met through the internet in 2009 – and they’ve been pretty much inseparable ever since. They’ve made hundreds of YouTube videos together, they’ve done a radio show together and they’ve even lived together. How could you not be Phans of these two?
Mindy Kaling and BJ Novak
The Ross and Rachel of Twitter, Mindy Kaling and BJ Novak were colleagues, then bf and gf, then platonic BFFs. Supposedly. It’s been a very confusing ride for their fans who just want these two soup snakes to be together.
Suki Waterhouse and Cara Delevingne
Suki and Cara have been best friends since their school days. In 2016, they somehow made a high-vis jacket the ‘must have’ of the season when they wore their matching ones to Glastonbury. They topped off the look with blue hair extensions and matching braids from Braid Bar, because everyone knows that while friends worry about wearing the exact same outfit, best friends dream of it.
Benedict Cumberbatch and Judge Rinder
The Sherlock actor and daytime TV star Robert (aka Judge Rinder) met at Manchester University, where they became student BFFs. Robert was the best man at Benefit Combersnog’s wedding – and even more adorably, when the Judge got hitched a couple of years earlier, Benny C got ordained online so he could officiate the ceremony. Or ‘Tribbiani it’, as we like to say.
Grace Helbig, Hannah Hart, and Mamrie Hart.
These three lovely ladies are have been dubbed ‘YouTube’s Holy Trinity’ by their fans. Between the three of them they have 2.3 MILLION FOLLOWERS, and rumour has it that if they ever had a fight, the internet might actually implode.
Amy Poehler and Tina Fey
The joint queens of comedy, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are one of our fave celeb double acts. They spent years on Saturday Night Live together, and were the first female duo to host Weekend Update. Oh, and they’ve hosted the Golden Globes – three freakin’ times. Obviously, they missed working together so much that they starred in a sibling comedy film together, proving once and for all that they really are each others’ sister from another mister.
