Snow Patrol star Jonny Quinn says he hasn't met Courteney Cox yet - but he's delighted his bandmate is marrying the actress.

The drummer said that he had only talked to the former Friends star - who is engaged to Johnny McDaid - online.

He told the Irish Mirror: "I've only met Courteney on Skype. She's lovely. For being the mega star that she is, she's quite a down to earth, lovely person actually."

The 42-year-old sparked speculation that the couple could be marrying next month by saying : "I'm going to see them in August to stay with them - but I can't tell you about a wedding.

"No, I haven't been told about the wedding. But I am so happy they met, it happened a very organic way."

The rocker added: "I t's just gone from strength to strength - obviously, they're getting married. Johnny is a great guy, I've known him for a very long time. I wish all the best for him."

Snow Patrol are celebrating their 20th anniversary but Jonny said it hadn't always been easy.

"The first seven years were tough. We made so many mistakes. We were all over the shop, terrible live," he said.

"Gary (Lightbody) used to get really nervous and drunk before. But he doesn't even drink now."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

Take a friend's advice with a pinch of salt. Although you love this dreamer dearly, they don't have a realistic grasp of the situation. Trust your instincts instead. You've always taken great pride in your work ethic. Abandoning a project before it is finished will weigh on your conscience. Do the best you can with a severely reduced budget. The results won't be thrilling, but they will be respectable. Nobody will blame you for having to make bricks from straw.More
