The Twittersphere went into overdrive last week when members believed that former Friends stars Courteney Cox and Matthew Perry, who played Monica Geller and Chandler Bing in the hit Nineties sitcom, were dating.
A tweet showing the pair enjoying a cosy lunch together in West Hollywood went viral. A snap showing Matthew gazing affectionately at Courtney was put alongside an on-set shot capturing an identical gaze from an in-love Chandler. The tweet garnered more than 17k likes and 15k retweets.
Twitter member Emma, who glimpsed the pair, wrote: "matthew looks at courteney the same way chandler looks at monica and i don't know what to do with myself".
While they got their happily-ever-after ending on the small screen, tying the knot and going on to have twins, it looks like in real life, love is not in the air. According to E! News, a source has confirmed that the rumours are no more than that, despite Courtney recently becoming single after her split from rocker Johnny McDaid.
Courteney, 51, recently split from her Snow Patrol guitarist fiancé after a year and a half. The couple decided to call off their wedding, in which Ed Sheeran was set to sing, although they had fought hard to save their relationship.
American publication TMZ reported that Johnny, 39, packed his bags and moved out of Courteney's home in Los Angeles shortly before Thanksgiving.
The report went on to say that Courteney and Johnny differed on their lifestyle choices. While the actress liked to go out on the town, her fiancé was more private and liked to stay out of the limelight.
Hours after the news broke of the pair's split, the Mother's Day actress stepped out without her diamond sparkler, confirming that the couple had gone their separate ways.
Johnny proposed to his actress love last year during a romantic getaway to Turks and Caicos to celebrate Courteney's 50th birthday.
In June the pair confirmed their engagement on Twitter and shared their happy news simultaneously with a selfie. The actress captioned it, "I'm engaged to him", while Johnny wrote, "I'm engaged to her."
