Courteney Cox's new man, her Cougar Town co-star Brian Van Holt, can't get enough of her

Courteney Cox's new boyfriend says she is "phenomenal".

Brian Van Holt - who plays the star's ex-husband in her hit sitcom Cougar Town - was full of compliments for his girlfriend, who he has reportedly been seeing for six months, when quizzed about their budding relationship.

He gushed to Us Weekly: "Courteney's amazing; Courteney's phenomenal."

The 43-year-old actor has starred alongside Courtney, 49, in the TV series for four years and it's thought their on-set friendship has developed into a more romantic relationship over the last year, following her divorce from actor husband David Arquette in May.

Courteney first separated from her Scream co-star David - with whom she has nine-year-old daughter Coco - in 2010.

The former Friends actress and Brian were spotted enjoying dinner with Coco at West Hollywood's Chin Lin eatery earlier this year, and a witness said they "acted like boyfriend and girlfriend".

It seems Courteney's young daughter approves of her new relationship, also, as she is said to have been "extremely comfortable" with Brian.

A source said: "She treated him like a dad or an uncle."

David, 41, previously accused Courteney of having an "emotional affair" with her co-star following their separation in 2010.

However, the actor has since moved on and is now dating TV presenter Christina McLarty.
