Courtney Cox is spending her time in self-isolation in the most relatable way, by binge-watching Friends.

Many of us may have found ourselves watching re-runs of of the hit sitcom during the coronavirus pandemic - and knowing all the lines by heart.

However that’s not the case for Cox, who played Monica Geller on the iconic TV series for a decade.

“People love the show so much, I decided to binge watch Friends…it’s really good!” Cox told Jimmy Kimmel via video link.

“I don’t remember even being on the show, I have such a bad memory.”

She continued: “I remember obviously loving everybody there and having fun and I remember certain times of my life I was there, but I don’t remember episodes.”

The actress revealed that she’d bought the entire Friends box set on Amazon Prime, after it was taken off Netflix in the US, reports BBC.

But despite now rewatching countless episodes, Cox says she gets stressed out when people quiz her knowledge of Friends.

Kimmel then decided to put her Friends trivia to the test, by putting Cox head-to-head with Kimmel’s cousin who is a huge fan of the show. Despite the quiz being Monica-themed, Cox lost 5-0.

Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, the highly-anticipated Friends reunion special has been postponed.

Cox said that filming was meant to take place on Monday and Tuesday, along with her former co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer.
