Courteney Cox and David Arquette say they have been separated for some time but remain committed parents and "best friends".

The actors issued a joint statement on Monday announcing what they are calling a trial separation after In Touch Weekly reported the pair had split up.

The couple met on set of the film Scream in 1996 and they have been married since 1999. They have a six-year-old daughter together.

Cox and Arquette's statement says they are hoping the separation will help them understand themselves and their relationship.

They say they "still love each other deeply".

The pair are co-starring in the fourth instalment of the Scream series, which is due out next year.
