Courteney Cox 'plans trip to save relationship'

Courteney Cox and Johnny McDaid have reportedly planned a "make-or-break" trip to save their relationship.

The former Friends star got engaged to the Snow Patrol rocker in June 2014, after a whirlwind romance, but the couple was plagued by break-up rumours towards the end of 2015. While neither has confirmed the split, insiders claim 2016 will be a year of making amends as they work on their union.

"Courteney and Johnny have constantly been in touch and are keen to try and fix things," a source told Britain's Closer magazine. "They've planned a make-or-break week-long trip in the New Year - they've hired a 12-bedroom mansion in Punta Mita, Mexico, and they're planning to have couples' counselling too."

Their mutual friend Ed Sheeran introduced them in 2013 and they were last photographed together in August 2015, at a film premiere, but haven't been spotted out together since. It seems a lot rides on this getaway, as it could mean moving things forward quickly.

"Everything hangs on this trip," the source stressed. "If it all goes to plan, friends wouldn't be surprised to see them tie the knot as early as this spring (16)."

Amid the rumoured troubles, Courteney is said to be leaning on close pal Jennifer Aniston, who co-starred with her in hit sitcom Friends. Having waited three years to walk down the aisle with her husband Justin Theroux, Jennifer is apparently urging her pal to be patient.

"She knows how much Courteney loves Johnny and worries she's let the pressure of a wedding ruin what they have," it was previously reported. "She's urging her not to give up on him - even if they need therapy to work through some of their issues."
