Los Angeles: Contrary to earlier reports former `Friend`s star Jennifer Aniston will not be joining the cast of `Days of Our Lives`, confirms her representative.

It was reported that the 42-year-old actress will be appearing on NBC`s long-running daytime soap opera ? which her father John has starred in for 24 years. But her publicist has denied any such development, reported Access Hollywood.

"There is no truth at all," said her spokesperson.

Aniston was rumoured to play a wedding planner on the show, who was going to help her father`s character marry Maggie Horton, played by Suzanne Rogers.

The soap`s producers, who intended to axe the show at the end of its current series because of disastrous ratings, believed that with the introduction of Aniston, it will get a huge ratings boost.

John Aniston, 74, has appeared in almost 1200 episodes, playing Greek mobster, Victor Kiriakis.
