Courteney won fans all over the world with her portrayal of maternal cleanliness-obsessed Monica Geller in Friends which ran for 10 seasons and is one of the most successful TV shows of all time.

She starred alongside David Schwimmer as Ross Geller, Jennifer Aniston as Rachel Green, Matthew Perry as Chandler Bing, Matt Le Blanc as Joey Tribbiani and Lisa Kudrow as Phoebe Buffay. 

Courteney is in a long-term romance with Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid. 

Over the course of their romance Johnny and Courteney were briefly engaged but never tied the knot, calling off the engagement in 2015 when they temporarily split.

Although they repaired their romantic relationship they never got engaged again, though Courteney has suggested marriage is not entirely off the table.

In January she talked to People about the prospect of marrying Johnny, saying: ‘I don’t know. I’m definitely not opposed to it. I just don’t think about it.’

She and Johnny were kept apart for nine months by the COVID-19 lockdowns as he was in the UK and she in the US but they reunited in December 2020. 

‘I’ve learned that love is precious. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that,’ she reflected when she looked back on how the pandemic forced them to stay separate. 

On the professional front Courteney is starring on the series Shining Vale, co-created by Sharon Horgan who has previously helped create such series as Catastrophe.

Sharon’s co-creator on Shining Vale is Jeff Astrof, a writer who has worked on programs including The New Adventures Of Old Christine and Trial And Error.

Courteney is heading up a star-studded cast including Oscar winner Mira Sorvino and Oscar nominee Greg Kinnear.

As it happens Mira starred in the cult comedy Romy And Michele’s High School Reunion with Courteney’s Friends cast-mate Lisa Kudrow.
