Alec Baldwin has said that he plans to resume his Donald Trump impressions on Saturday Night Live even after the businessman's election success.

He began lampooning Trump on the US sketch show during 2016's US presidential election with his take on the then candidate, wearing a fluffy blond wig and orange fake tan for the role.

But despite the now-president Trump having objected to being the butt of the joke and Baldwin having previously said he was worried about the "maliciousness of this White House", he has now confirmed that he will bring the sketch back for the next run of Saturday Night Live.

He told CNN: "Yeah, we're going to fit that in. I think people have enjoyed it."

Fans hoping for a hefty portion of Trump spoofing may be disappointed though, as Baldwin added that there would only be "a couple of celery sticks" of the impression rather than a "whole meal" because of his work commitments.

Trump has said that he does not see the funny side of the sketches, and previously told Fox News: "I think the Alec Baldwin situation is not good."

He added: "I think the portrayal of me is ridiculous."
