Courteney Cox is reportedly moving to Ireland to work on her relationship with Snow Patrol star Johnny McDaid.

The 51-year-old actress and the Londonderry born musician were seen together for the first time since their December split on Easter Sunday in Malibu, California, fuelling rumours that they are back together.

The pair were engaged in June 2014.

However, they called the relationship off four months ago after reports of differences over where to live and how they handled life in the spotlight, which is said to have put their relationship under strain because of their different approaches to fame.

But an insider told OK magazine that the former Friends star may consider a move to Ireland to give their relationship another shot.

The insider said: "A permanent move is off the table.

"But Courteney is willing to spend more time in Ireland to make the relationship work. At this point she'll bend over backward to make Johnny happy."

"Being away from Johnny made Courteney realize how much she missed him," a source added.

The pair had been spotted shopping together in the US and they also enjoyed a dinner date at Craig's in West Hollywood.

'They ordered wine and pizza and looked so happy together,' a fellow diner told Life & Style who also confirmed the duo sat side-by-side in a private booth.

After their split, celebrity website TMZ claimed he wanted to return to live in the UK, with Cox more content to remain in America. There were also rumours the Derry man was uncomfortable in the limelight.

Originally from Alabama, Cox is now based in Los Angeles with her daughter Coco (11). Cox was married to Coco's father actor David Arquette from 1999-2013 and he also lives nearby.
