Johnny McDaid


If there's anywhere in the world you wouldn't expect to see a major Hollywood star, it's probably in a remote part of North Dublin.

The iconic Friends actress Courtney Cox has been spotted in Lusk this morning as her musician partner prepares for tomorrow's Snow Patrol gig.

The 54-year-old was snapped picking up a coffee in Applegreen station in the Dublin location, and looked relaxed and chilled out in blue jeans, a navy jumper and sunglasses.

You almost wouldn't recognise her, but these Freshii staff members couldn't miss out on the chance to snap a photo with her.

Applegreen tweeted the snap with the message: "We had a very special ‘Friend’ drop by to Applegreen Lusk North!" Gas.

Courtney's partner Johnny McDaid plays a concert in Bangor, Co. Down tonight as part of the Snow Patrol 'Wildness' tour, and plays Malahide Castle in Dublin on June 7. 

The actress, who is famed for playing Monica Geller on the hit TV show, was snapped hanging out with The Hunger Games star Woody Harrelson and X-Men actor James Marsden in Los Angeles earlier this week at Wiltern Theater where Johnny was playing a gig.

Courtney posted a picture to Instagram of herself with three famous friends on Tuesday, captioning the snap; "Great night with this lovable misfits at Snow Patrol concert."

Johnny's band are heading on a string of dates across Europe, and said that the public's obsession with his and Courtney's romance is 'bizarre'.

The couple announced their engagement in 2014, but have yet to tie the knot. He commented: “I think people are curious. I’m often approached from a perspective of people thinking they know something when they don’t.

He continued: 

“I think people are curious. I’m often approached from a perspective of people thinking they know something when they don’t. But often it’s just funny. I think I’ve gotten married 15 times in the last year.

“There is a missing part of that equation, I’m on tour at the moment and Courtney is in LA. So it would be really difficult for me to get married unless I do it by proxy or over Skype or something.”

He spoke to the Belfast Telegraph: “It is a bit bizarre but it comes with the territory. I expect the curiosity but I also respect my relationship and my love.”

Courtney and Johnny apparently split up in 2015 but later rekindled their relationship. The Derry rocker was introduced to Cox by Ed Sheeran in 2013, who is a mutual mate.

The actress is already mum to 14-year-old Coco, with ex-husband David Arquette. When she appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres show, she denied that Johnny was her fiancé.

“We were engaged to be married, but now we’re just together. We broke off our engagement and he moved to England. Then we got back together, and it’s actually better than it was before."

Courteney Cox says she and her boyfriend Johnny McDaid prefer not to put a label on their relationship.

The long-time partners have been dating for nearly five years and are in no rush to get married anytime soon.

The Friends star told People that the word husband is just “a label”. What really matters is their devotion to one another.

“We’re not married. I’m married in my heart,” she said.

The actress, who was previously married to David Arquette, has already done the whole wedding ceremony and said she has realised where the value lies in a relationship.

“We have [a ceremony] every morning when we look at each other,” she explained.

Johnny added to his girlfriend's words, calling her his “best friend” and “partner in everything”.

“When I write her poems, it’s just an extension of how I feel every second anyway, and that’s true for me,” he told the magazine.

Love is all about quality time and the gestures ones show each other, according to the happy couple.

In fact, that is how the pair plan on spending the holidays this season.

Courteney’s 14-year-old daughter Coco will be joining them for a fun, family Christmas – a tradition where the three “hang out, sing songs, play music, eat and drink…and be together.”

Courteney and Johnny are still as head over heels as when they first met and are prioritising what really matters in their love life.



Now, this is a wedding we'd want to go to.

We all know wedding bands can be totally hit and miss; some people are into the music and some aren't – but we'd say there wasn't ANY room left on the dance floor at this Irish wedding last weekend.

In one of the greatest musical combinations ever, Ed Sheeran played with Johnny McDaid and his band Snow Patrol on Saturday.

Johnny's younger sister tied the knot in Derry, and Beech Hill Country House Hotel shared a video of the musical stars playing together on the night.

Johnny brought his girlfriend (and rumoured fiancé) Courteney Cox along to the big day, which sparked the news that they were the ones getting married, but the Friends star was simply there to wish Johnny's sister well.

According to Belfast Live, Courteney and Johnny stayed at the family home in Culmore,Derry, and were spotted strolling at Queen’s Quay over the weekend.


Bear Grylls seems to be better than any talk show host when it comes to getting information out of people.

The whole world was shocked at the end of last year when Courteney Cox and Johnny McDaid called in quits on their engagement – just weeks before they were set to tie the knot.

The couple reconciled a few months later, but Court kept quiet about the whole thing – until now.

While on a hike with Bear, the actress opened up to him, saying: "We were engaged for over a year and then we broke up.

"There's something about… you know, he's from Ireland. And the way he regards love is precious," she said.

"We have to treat it in a different way. It's more special… you coddle it. I didn't know how to regard love the way he does.

"And I definitely made a lot of mistakes that I see, whether it's co-dependency or people-pleasing. I didn't know how to bring it in.

"It was always external. I definitely have learned a lot, and no matter what, I will be a better person from the break-up, even though it was so brutal," she admitted.


Courteney Cox is just back from our fair green isle, but that doesn’t mean things are peachy between her and her partner, Johnny McDaid.

The couple were photographed in Notting Hill and it looks like they were having a major row – and Johnny looks like he’s in the bad books.

In the pictures obtained by the Mail, Courteney can be seen breaking down before getting into a hated argument with the star.

It is rumoured that the couple are having a secret wedding in October, after splitting just before their nuptials last year.

Let’s hope this was just a fight about the table plan!


Monica Geller Courteney Cox is in Ireland!

The actress has touched down on our fair green isle with her partner Johnny McDaid as she joins Bear Grylls in the wilderness.

Court shared a picture with her man which saw them standing on a balcony with the sea in the background.

She captioned the post: "In Ireland as my love @johnnymcdaid sends me off into the wilderness for the @beargrylls show. It's already raining!"

(Try living here 24/7 Courteney!)

The Friends star and Johnny were meant to marry in Ireland last year, but called off their wedding only weeks beforehand.

Hopefully she'll fall back in love with our country as she travels it with Bear!


Johnny McDaid and Courteney Cox reconciled their relationship after a brief split at the beginning of the year.

But it looks like the couple are more loved up than ever as Johnny just sent the sweetest message to the former Friends actress on Twitter.

Sharing a photo of the couple standing beside a beautiful lake, the Snow Patrol star wrote: "Wishing my beautiful @CourteneyCox the happiest birthday!"

She replied to him soon after, saying: "Thank you my love," and then tweeted to the rest of her followers, "Huge thank you to all those who took the time to wish me a happy birthday. It's been a great one!"

But it wasn't only on Twitter that Johnny wished Courteney a happy birthday. He also took to Instagram to share another message.

While posting the same photo, he simply captioned the snap: "Happy Birthday Darlin' Girl. X."

The actress turned 52 (can you believe it?!) and is reportedly engaged to the musician again.



The world may know him as the (once) long-haired cheeky chap from One Direction, but it sounds like no one knows Harry Styles as well as Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid does.

Opening up during a recent interview, Johnny revealed that Harry has so much more to give the music industry than anyone realises – something he learned during their private jam sessions. (Yeah, we know!)

"I've been friends with Harry for a long time, and we've written together a lot," he explained. "He's really authentic and he has an incredible voice, so we've been writing a lot of songs. "

While the 22-year-old Cheshire lad may have been tarred with the boy band brush (due mainly to being part of a boy band obvs), it seems Johnny has high hopes for his pal.

"I'm really excited by the way he's sounding at the minute, he's such a talent," Johnny explained. "I think the world is going to be really shocked at what he comes up with."

According to Hello! Johnny doesn't have an exact date for the epic debut, but he did insist certain pieces of clothing would leave our body with excitement.

"I don't know about soon, I don't know how long that is. But I would imagine that Harry would come up with something that's going to be pretty special, and from what I've heard, it'll blow the socks off the world," he said.

Well, in that case, pass the slippers.

They broke our hearts when they split up last year, just weeks before they were meant to tie the knot on our fair green isle.

But now, rumour has it that Courteney Cox and her ex-fiance Johnny McDaid are back on – and they've taken it one step further by moving in together!

According to The Sun, the actress is temporarily moving into Johnny's London apartment while she films a TV show – a new ITV sitcom called Truthing.

The pair broke up last December, cancelling their engagement, but reports are suggesting they have recently reconciled.

Courteney and Johnny were originally introduced by mutual pal Ed Sheeran (who was meant to play at their wedding) and began dating in 2013.

We hope that Irish wedding ends up taking place soon!


It's set to be the Irish celebrity wedding of 2016, but it looks like Courteney Cox's nuptials to Johnny McDaid might be off the cards.

The Friends actress is said to be single again after her Snow Patrol rocker fiancé suddenly "decided" he wanted to end things.

According to Hollywood Life, Johnny has even reportedly moved out of Courteney's Malibu mansion, where he had been living full-time with her and her daughter, 11-year-old Coco.

"They [Courteney and Johnny] were going to counselling because they were having issues and fighting a lot, about everything," an insider alleges.

"He just decided he wanted to separate. He hasn’t really given a reason, but mainly said he wants to focus on his music and can’t take the fighting."

It's true that Johnny has indeed been giving music a lot of attention of late, as he's been back in the studio with his Snow Patrol bandmates to record their seventh album. The Northern Irish rockers took some time in Topanga Canyon at the end of October to lay down tracks with Irish producer Jacknife Lee.

As for Courteney, she is reportedly struggling to stay positive about things after the unexpected split.

"She is really depressed about it…extremely upset. She truly is just miserable about it," the insider says.

The pair were due to marry at the luxurious Ashford Castle in Cong Co. Mayo, although no wedding date had been officially set, with the actress saying things were still in the "planning" stages.

Courtney was apparently very taken with the five-star hotel when she and Johnny visited it as a possible wedding venue in August 2014.

 "Johnny took Courteney to Ireland to meet his family and they fell in love with Ashford Castle," a source told The Sun at the time.

"They want to get married there… and have a big bash in LA on a Malibu beach afterwards."

The couple, who were introduced by singer Ed Sheeran, got engaged last summer during a birthday party for the actress' daughter Coco, held at Jennifer Aniston's house.



There's still no news of an official date for Courteney Cox and Johnny McDaid's upcoming Irish nuptials, but we're loving all the rumours so far.

And while this latest piece of news might seem a bit off-the-wall at first, we reckon it could definitely be likely to happen.

Singer Ed Sheeran has reportedly signed on to officiate Courteney and Johnny's wedding, standing at the alter on the big day to lead the ceremony.

Having a BFF (or just someone very famous) officiating your wedding seems to be the done thing of late – in fact Courteney's close pal Jennifer Aniston was married by Jimmy Kimmel just a couple of months ago.

And last month Girls actress Allison Williams had Tom Hanks on hand to oversee her wedding to Ricky Van Veen.

Fans of Courteney will know that Ed was in fact the one who set her and Johnny up back in 2013, having introduced them while he was living rent-free in Court's Malibu beach house.

Just last month it was reported that Ed would be present to sing at the wedding, strongly rumoured to be taking place at the luxurious Ashford Castle in Cong, Co. Mayo.

Cougar Town star Courteney is said to have been very taken with the five star hotel when she and Johnny visited it as a possible wedding venue last August.

"Johnny took Courteney to Ireland to meet his family and they fell in love with Ashford Castle,” a source told The Sun at the time.

Usher, officiant or wedding singer… Which is it gonna be, Ed?


First Ronan Keating, now Courteney Cox… Ed Sheeran could have a new career as a wedding singer in the pipeline.

The Thinking Out Loud hitmaker will reportedly perform at the wedding of Courteney and Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid, at the couple's request.

Courtney, 51, revealed during the week that Ed will serenade her Johnny on their wedding day, which seems fitting considering Mr. Sheeran actually introduced the couple back in 2013.

“We are certainly grateful to Ed for introducing us,” she told The Sun.

“I can’t imagine him not playing something at the wedding. It’ll be a musical night.” 

Oh to be a fly on the wall!

We've no doubt that it will be an extremely musical night as we're sure Johnny's Snow Patrol band mates will perform a song or two. 

And Irish band Kodaline might even pop in for a sing-song after Johnny, 39, recently co-wrote their new song and Courteney directed their new music video.

As for the venue, the pair are likely  to marry on Irish soil in the lavish surroundings of Ashford Castle in Cong, Co. Mayo. Courtney was reportedly very taken with the venue when the couple visited earlier this year.

There is also going to be a special performance from Courteney's 11-year-old daughter Coco.

“She’s actually really, really talented,” Courteney said.

“Coco sang a song for the film I directed called Just Before I Go and she’s amazing."

It definitely sounds like it will be a night to remember… With Ed, Snow Patrol, Kodaline and probably half the cast of Friends attending the wedding, we think we need a one-stop train ticket to Mayo very soon.
