    Friends star Matthew Perry was said to hold a candle for his on-screen wife Courteney Cox after growing close to her on the set of the hit US comedy series.

    Their characters Chandler Bing and Monica Gellar tied the knot after years of being friends and were last seen strolling off into the sunset for a life in the suburbs when the series ended in 2004.

    After the pair found love following a one night stand in London, the pair quickly became the show' power couple, but according to reports, their on-screen romance could have tipped into real life.

    Matthew was said to have been harbouring deep feelings for his co-star since the show ended back in 2004, while Courteney was married to Scream actor David Arquette towards the end of the Friends days until they split in October 2010.

    The Cougar Town star has since found love with Snow Patrol guitarist Johnny McDaid and the couple have been dating since 2013.

    During her brief split from Johnny in 2015, it was reported that Courteney turned to Matthew for support, as a source told Perez Hilton at the time: "It’s no surprise that Matthew was one of the first people Courteney called after Johnny left her.

    "They’ve leaned on each other before. There isn’t any pressure to put a label on it just yet, but they’re excited to see where this might go."

    The pair slammed rumours and Courtney reunited with Johnny and Matthew dated Molly Hurwitz for two years before they went their separate ways.

    However, despite pals slamming the claims, according to other sources, Matthew's feelings for Courteney still ran deep.

    A source told US Weekly last year: "Matthew’s always been in love with her.

    "Matthew has never fully been able to get over her."

    The pair remained close throughout the years, and the actress is sure to be devastated at the news of Matthew's untimely death at the age of 54.
    He was found in his hot tub at his Pacific Palisades home and was said to have drowned. No drugs were discovered at the scene and there is no indication of foul play.

    The Friends' official Twitter account confirmed the sad news as they posted: "We are devastated to learn of Matthew Perry’s passing. He was a true gift to us all. Our heart goes out to his family, loved ones, and all of his fans."
