Courteney Cox has revealed that she's spending her time in coronavirus self-isolation binge-watching Friends.

However, unlike virtually everyone else on the planet — and despite the fact she was actually in the show herself — it turns out Courteney has never watched the series from start to finish until now.

Courteney made the revelation during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel's new "Minilogue" series — condensed YouTube versions of his late night TV show which has been halted due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Courteney began by explaining that her memory is so bad that she doesn't actually recall filming much of Friends, and certainly can't remember details from specific episodes.

"I don't remember even being on the show," Courteney said. "I have such a bad memory. I remember obviously loving everybody there and having fun, and certain times in my life that I remember I was there for, but I don't remember episodes."

Courteney went on to explain that she'd therefore decided to put her time in quarantine to good use by binging the show and seeing what all the fuss was about.

"I decided during this time — because people love the show so much — I decided to binge-watch Friends," she said.

"I just started season one. It's really good!" she added.

Courteney also addressed the Friends reunion special which was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak, revealing that the cast were actually scheduled to shoot the episode this week.

"We were supposed to do it Monday and Tuesday this week," she said. "We did speak with the producer one time. We had a meeting — it was really fun to have us all in one room."
