While you were pre-drinking to Eurovision on Saturday night, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds were doing what all A-list celebrity couples do, and hanging out behind the scenes of Melissa McCarthy's Saturday Night Live show.

After giving a shout out to her mother Sandra and two daughters, Vivian and Georgette, the 46-year-old host told all the mothers in the studio audience to stand up.

She joked: 'Let's give these ladies a hand! Every single one of these ladies who stood up have not been to the bathroom alone since they gave birth, they haven't had a hot meal in years, all of our purses are filled with old cracker crumbs and dirty Purell bottles, and that's OK.'

To one guest's surprise – who later turned out to be the mother of the show's co-head writer, Sarah Schneider – Melissa pulled her out from the crowd to join in a backstage tour of the show's studio.

During the tour, Melissa picked up some handy props for her show (after all, you never know when a bottle of ketchup and foot cream will come in use) bumped into a Alec Baldwin in full Donald Trump fancy dress, the SNL studio llama, and had an awkward encounter with Hollywood's golden couple, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively.

Shocked to see the 29-year-old and 40-year-old actors, McCarthy cried: 'Oh my god! Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively! What are you guys doing here?'

Unimpressed, the Deadpool actor replied: 'You invited us.'

'Are you going to get us seats?' added Lively, before McCarthy pretended to have forgotten inviting the pair and said their view backstage was much better than the audience seats .

'The Livelys', McCarthy shouted to their crowd, before revealing to Schneider's mother she 'may have been drinking when she invited them'.

To finish off her tour of the studio, the Bridesmaids actress and her audience member had a shot and bumped into Haim, before the comedian went back on stage to host the show.
