TV star Courteney Cox surprised travellers in Londonderry when she arrived at the city's airport on Wednesday.

The Friends star was pictured with staff at City of Derry Airport after arriving on a flight from Stansted.

Last month, Cox announced her engagement to Snow Patrol member Johnny McDaid, who was born in Derry.

It is believed she is in the city to meet her fiancé's family.

In June, the couple posted an announcement simultaneously on their individual Twitter accounts, using the same picture and the captions: "I'm engaged to him" and "I'm engaged to her".

Cox was spotted wearing a diamond ring on her engagement finger at the premiere of Just Before I Go.

The pair met last year through mutual friend Ed Sheeran.
