Will Courteney Cox ring in a Happy New Year? Actress wears wedding band to festive bash... as estranged husband David Arquette parties in Hollywood

Not much Christmas cheer: Courteney Cox appears to be missing the Christmas spirit as she heads to a holiday party wearing her estranged husband David Arquette's wedding ring on her finger

Is Courteney Cox hoping for a New Year's reunion with her estranged husband David Arquette?The 46-year-old Cougar Town star was spotted heading to a Christmas Eve party in West Hollywood last night...wearing her wedding ring.
Cox removed the band from when the couple split back in October and this is the first time she's been seen out in public displaying the rock again.

However, Arquette may not be quite ready to kiss and make up. He was seen last night partying at the risqué Hollywood nightclub Voyeur, renowned for its semi-naked women hanging in nets from the ceiling.

After being pictured with her Cougar Town co-star Brian Van Holt at a party the night before, Cox turned up to last night's celebrations without a date.

Dressed in a plain back outfit with a white frilly shirt, the Friends actress brought her six-year-old daughter Coco as her 'plus one' instead.

While Coco happily skipped up to the front door of the private home, Cox looked decidedly glum and not as though she was in the mood to party.

Putting on a brave face: Courteney is doing her best to keep up the Christmas spirit for her six-year-old daughter Coco, but has always said that she hopes she and David will reunite

Cox and Arquette, 39, met on the set of the Scream movie in 1996. They were married for 11 years before splitting two months ago.

Arquette then went on Howard Stern's radio show and stated that the couple had not had sex for four months, and then added he had cheated on Cox with a waitress saying it made him feel "pretty manly."

While Cox has spent the last couple of months trying to remain low key about the split, Arquette has consistently been in the headlines with his partying, drinking and all-round bad behaviour.

Coco on the go: David has confessed that he 'pines' for Courteney and that he's signed all his Christmas cards from David, Courtney and Coco

In a recent appearance on the George Lopez television talk show, Arquette defended his behaviour, saying, 'That's my thing, I'm a fun-loving, great person.

'I refuse to let these magazines vilify me, make me a demon. I'm one of the best people you will ever meet. I've always been wild and crazy.'

However, last week Arquette was back on Howard Stern's show and confessed that he 'pines' for Cox 'once in a while,' and that he sent out his holiday presents and signed the cards, "David, Courteney and Coco."

When Stern asked Arquette if he was having a nervous breakdown over the split, Arquette replied: 'Absolutely.' He also said he's trying to give up drinking because he know when he does drink it turns him into 'a maniac.'

However, the following day he took to his Twitter account to backtrack on some of those comments. 'It is being reported that I'm having a Nervous Breakdown,' he tweeted. 'I assure you I am not. This stemmed from a joke I made.'

However, Arquette also tweeted that he had no intention of apologising for some of his other statements during the interview, including that he'd like to have a child with his ex - Drew Barrymore.

'I always speak my mind and I really don't care what people that don't know me may say,' he tweeted. 'I'm a good person with a huge heart. I thank those that have been on my side during this rough time.'

Yet despite Arquette's antics, Cox has always been hopeful that the two might reconcile, stating that their split is only a trial separation, which may explain why she's started wearing her wedding band again.

She recently told TV Week magazine: 'I don't know what will happen, but this is not like we're getting divorced.'
