Friends star Courteney Cox set for Bear Grylls treatment in Ireland

US actress Courteney Cox is set to travel to Ireland to film an episode of Wild Weekends with Irish born TV adventurer Bear Grylls later this year.

The 51-year-old actress who gained overnight fame as Monica Gellar on Friends is no stranger to the Emerald Isle following her engagement to Northern Irish musician Johnny McDaid of Snow Patrol.

The pair reunited following a temporary split last year, which was reportedly based on Cox’s reluctance to leave Los Angeles, according to the Daily Mail.
