Of all the celebrity rumours we’ve ever heard (and we’ve heard a lot), we would probably die if this one ended up happening. Amid the surprise news that Courteney Cox had suddenly ended her engagement to Johnny McDaid, her new potential plus one has everyone thrilled, as a number of US publications report that it is none other than fellow Friends star, Matthew Perry. Yep, their TV romance could become an actual love fest if the rumour mill is to be believed. We’ve all secretly hoped that at least one on-screen couple from the iconic show would get together in real life and this is the closest thing we have to it, so we’re clutching at our straws, however few there might be.
Newly single Courteney was spotted having lunch with old friend and former co-star Matthew Perry, and then this picture happened and it practically broke the internet:

According to Star Magazine her onscreen husband has been Courteney’s “rock” since her split: “It’s no surprise that Matthew was one of the first people Courteney called when she ended the engagement. They’ve leaned on each other before, during her infertility struggle and his battle with addiction.” Perry has been single for a while now so at least the timing would be spot on.
It’s not the first time it’s been rumoured that love has blossomed between Friends co-stars.
Earlier this year that Matt LeBlanc, who played Joey, and Jennifer Aniston, who played Rachel, once shared a romantic dalliance including pictures of them publicly kissing in a street. Yes, we know she married Justin in the end but it was still fun to speculate.
Of course, that’s not all; the source added: “Matthew invited her over to talk one night, and they ended up hooking up… There isn’t any pressure to put a label on it yet, but they’re excited to see where this might go.”
If the rumor that Courtney Cox and Matthew Perry are dating is real, it will be the greatest Christmas gift of all.

Disregarding the validity of this “source”, and despite another outlet claiming the rumours are untrue, social media users have lost all self-control and are literally freaking out, but it never hurts to dream, right? They did always make a great couple, and for another trip down Friends memory lane, remember when this dance happened?
