Matt LeBlanc can't wait to meet Courteney Cox's fiancé.

The 46-year-old actor hasn't met Derry-born Johnny McDaid despite still being in regular contact with his former 'Friends' co-star, who got engaged to the Snow Patrol rocker last month.

The 'Episodes' star told E! News: "I haven't met him yet. I want to meet him. Apparently, he's a great guy. I'm sure he's awesome. Courteney likes him!"

The brunette beauty had dinner with two of her other former co-stars Lisa Kudrow and Jennifer Aniston earlier this week in Los Angeles, sparking rumours they are planning a 'Friends' reunion, and Matt revealed they video called him from the restaurant.

He said: "They Facetimed me from the restaurant. So I talked to them over the phone and saw them all."

But he added: "They've been eating lunch together for 20 years. It was no reunion. They never split up."

Courteney previously claimed it was impossible to get all of her former castmates together for dinner.

The 50-year-old star said: "Let me tell you something: there's six friends and I've been trying to put together a cast dinner for 10 years. It doesn't happen! I can get the girls to come, maybe Matthew Perry. Matt LeBlanc cancelled last time right at the last minute, [David] Schwimmer lives here [in New York City], so it's just not gonna happen."
