Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston have quashed rumours they are on the verge of separating - after being photographed publicly cuddling up to each other during a Caribbean holiday.

The show of affection came as the married couple holidayed on the island of Anguilla with Aniston's Friends pal Courteney Cox ARQUETTE and her actor husband David Arquette.

Pitt has been determined to put a stop to persistent media reports about the state of his marriage, which intensified last month (DEC04) when Aniston was photographed not wearing her wedding ring.

But an onlooker says, "They seemed as close as ever and she had her wedding ring on again.

"It was a romantic New Year's holiday. They certainly didn't show any signs of problems."
