Many Rachel and Ross fans have reacted to the dating rumour on social media, with most jumping for joy at the potential couple.

Friends fan account @insidefriends said on Twitter: “Jennifer Aniston & David Schwimmer are rumoured to be seeing eachother and we're HERE for it.”

Another tweet from @McGarveyDraws said: “If David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston are legit dating, I think this is the one chance we have as a planet for world peace".

Whilst David Schwimmer has reportedly denied the dating rumours, some fans are holding onto the couple's rumoured romance. In the reunion show, Schwimmer stated that the friends had never dated due to ‘one of us always being in a relationship’. Now the pair are both single, there could still be a potential romance between the two.

Could this be “The one where Aniston and Schwimmer couple up”?
