OH. MY. GOD! Are Courtney Cox and Matthew Perry (Monica and Chandler) dating in real life?

Monica and Chandler are dating in real life, apparently. That's the word on the street.

Is this proof that life is a fairytale? It's a Friends fanatic's dream come true: Courteney Cox and Matthew Perry, aka Monica Geller and Chandler Bing, are rumored to be together IRL! 

All we need now is for Jennifer Aniston to dump Justin Theroux for David Schwimmer and I will actually pass out.

According to a single “source” who spoke to US magazine Star, the actors Courteney Cox and Matthew Perry are “hooking up” following the break-up of Cox’s engagement to Snow Patrol singer Johnny McDaid.

Disregarding the validity of any such “source”, social media users have lost all self-control over the rumours. This is the tweet that started it all:

Breaking our hearts, the above photo of Cox and Perry actually dates back to 2005, when Cox was married to David Arquette – hence the rather sizeable wedding ring on her finger. The couple separated and then amicably divorced in 2013.

Another anonymous source told Entertainment Today the pair are not dating, confirming the rumours were totally “untrue”.

Sad times.

It’s really lovely to have assurance from the company arranging the night that we will be looked after, even after we have paid the money - Charlotte
