Sheeran recently told OMG! Insider that he set the Cougar Town actress up with the Snow Patrol star.

“I wasn’t allowed to talk about this, actually, but it’s just gone public so… My housemate [Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid] who I’ve lived with for a year, I introduced him to Courteney Cox. They started dating and [are] crazy about each other,” he said.

“I ended up spending a lot of time living in her beach house and therefore bumping into all these random people. We spent Thanksgiving eve at Jennifer Aniston’s before spending the day at Courteney’s.”

Rumors about a relationship between the two first appeared after they were spotted leaving Jennifer Aniston’s annual holiday party together.

The former Friends star was previously married to actor David Arquette but they split in 2010.
