THE fly that targeted Mike Pence in the US vice-presidential debate took centre stage again during the latest edition of Saturday Night Live.

Jim Carrey returned as Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden, who turned into Jeff Goldblum’s character in the 1986 horror film The Fly and appeared on Mr Pence’s head.

Creating a buzz: Carrey as Joe Biden

Show regular Beck Bennett played Republican Mr Pence, who said Donald Trump was recovering from Covid-19 ‘thanks to his team of terrified doctors.’

Kamala Harris was played by Maya Rudolph who used the real candidate’s riposte to Mr Pence, and said: ‘I’m speaking. I’m speaking.’ Meanwhile, rock star Jack White paid tribute to the late Eddie Van Halen, when he stood in on the show for country star Morgan Wallen.
