Fans of TV show Friends have gone into total meltdown online after a photo of its stars Matthew Perry and Courteney Cox enjoying an intimate lunch together went viral.
Famous for their roles as Chandler Bing and Monica Geller, the lunch photo was lined up and compared to an image from Friends in a Tweet by a fan. The photo of the cosy lunch is in fact, years old.
The image, has now been re-tweeted over 12,000 times and gathered 13,000 likes, with memories of the show being shared all over the internet. Of particular interest was the ‘adoring’ look that Matthew is seen giving Courteney – strikingly similar to the looks he gave Monica when playing Chandler on Friends.

It drew internet-wide speculation of a possible real-life romance from confused and hopeful fans – however the image dates back to 2005 and was taken just months after Friends series ended.
The long-running Friends TV show, was originally broadcast on the NBC from 1994 – 2004, with Monica and Chandler moving from friends to lovers- eventually getting married in season seven.
The TV couple was a firm favourite of fans of the show, and ended up adopting surprise twins, when faced with infertility issues.
Courtney herself has faced some real life drama recently, splitting from her fiance of 18 months, Johnny McDaid. According to TMZ, the engagement ended when they couldn’t settle on a place to live. She has a daughter Coco, 11, with ex-husband David Arquette,who she divorced in 2013.
