The Graham Norton Show returned on Friday (4 February) night and the host was joined by Courteney Cox - though many viewers thought she'd rather have been somewhere else.

The Friends star joined guests Taron Egerton, Minnie Driver, Uma Thurman and Ariana DeBose on the show.

The 57-year-old was promoting her new comedy-horror series Shining Vale, and judging by the reaction on social media, she better hope it's more entertaining than her appearance on the show.

Taking to Twitter, one person wrote: "He [Norton] really is superb at managing the guests. It was a tough one tonight, too - Courteney Cox looked like she wasn't present at all, almost dissociated.

"Her eyes looked glazed over, which isn't how she used to come across."

Another added: "Courteney Cox looks bored. Such a shame."

A third said: "#Courteneycox looks like she wants to be somewhere else. So awkward."

To be fair to Cox, the thrill of being asked questions about a show you made decades ago has probably well and truly worn off.

Whether or not she was bored on the show is of course a matter of opinion, but she clearly had a great time on The John Bishop Show, which aired last night.

Writing on Instagram, Cox said she 'loved being on the show' with Bishop, who she described as a 'friend'.

Speaking on the show, she explained that they had to overcome an accent barrier to build this friendship.

She said: "Scouse? I don't even know what that means.

"I know that when I first met you, I needed to see your mouth move at the same time.

"If we were taking a walk and I was behind you it was like uh oh... I didn't understand."

Shining Vale comes out next month and sees Cox take on the role of novelist Pat Phelps.

A synopsis of the show reads: "Shining Vale is a horror comedy about a dysfunctional family that moves from the city to a small town into a house in which terrible atrocities have taken place.

"But no one seems to notice except for Pat (Courteney Cox), who's convinced she’s either depressed or possessed – turns out, the symptoms are exactly the same."
