Johnny McDaid and Courteney Cox made their first red carpet appearance together at Tuesday night's BMI Pop Awards, with the Snow Patrol musician saying he has "always loved" the Friends star.

The couple, who called off their engagement last year, recently sparked reconciliation rumours after they were photographed by paparazzi over the Easter weekend in Malibu spending time together with Cox's 11-year-old daughter.

Making their first red carpet appearance together since their split, McDaid told E! News, "Just look at us. I love her. I've always loved her." 

McDaid and Cox began dating in 2013 and became engaged in June 2014 after a whirlwind romance. They were introduced by their mutual friend Ed Sheeran.
