'Saturday Night' Live is known for its sketches in the US, and last night was no exception.

The NBC show wasted no time in making fun of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump over his lewd comments on women.

The billionaire was recorded in 2005 describing his attempt to seduce a married woman and boasting in vulgar terms of what he can do to women as a "star".

In a video statement, Mr Trump promised to be a "better man". He said: "Anyone who knows me knows these words don't reflect who I am. I said it, I was wrong and I apologise."

But the sketch show showed him no mercy.

It begins with a mock up of the vice presidential debate, before cutting to a 'Breaking News' flash to discuss the comments with 'Trump' - played by actor Alec Baldwin.

It shows 'Trump' unable to pronounce the word 'apologise', and also making some inappropriate remarks about hurricane-hit Florida.

He is also portrayed flip-flopping in his support for his own running mate, Mike Pence.

After some more funny, and inappropriate, language the presenter then interviews 'Hillary Clinton' (played by Kate McKinnon) - who is shown celebrating.

All the while, 'Trump's' microphone is still on recording his comments.
