Pete Davidson is well and truly back on Saturday Night Live, and made a hilarious return to the show.

Davidson announced last year that he was leaving SNL after eight years, but his time away from the popular programme was short-lived as he made his return last night (October 14) for the season 49 premiere.

The King Of Staton Island star was joined by 'Munch' rapper Ice Spice.

As many SNL fans will know, the show is full of comical skits - and last night saw Davidson perform his own version of Ryan Gosling's 'I'm Just Ken' from the Barbie movie.

Titled 'I'm Just Pete', the 29-year-old rocked blonde hair in the video and appeared to have his own Casa Mojo Dojo.

Davidson makes jokes about his appearance (where he claimed that people say he has 'bu**hole eyes'), as well as his new show Bupkis.

He also addressed the nickname he's been given in recent times - Skete.

As per Urban Dictionary, 'Skete' is a name given to 'a pale, skinny white dude who’s banging your ex'.

This name was given to him by Kanye West; the ex-husband of his ex-girlfriend Kim Kardashian.

In his 'I'm Just Pete' video, he says: "I'm just Pete, looking like a meth head on the street.

"People online still call me Skete because of a guy's name I can't say legally."

As he sings the lyrics, an image of West briefly pops up.

West appears to have stopped taking aim at Davidson in light of his break up from Kardashian; but while they were together, he made his feelings about the SNL star very clear.

In the immediate aftermath of his split from the SKIMS founder, West shared a fake New York Times front page on Instagram that read 'SKETE DAVIDSON DEAD AT 28'.

He'd also shared images of Davidson online insisting that he'd never meet his kids.

The 'Power' rapper shares four kids with Kardashian: North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 2.

West also took fire at Davidson in a couple of his songs.

In the track 'City of Gods', the rapper says: "This afternoon a hundred goons pullin' up to SNL. When I pull up, it's dead on arrival."

Elsewhere, in his song 'Eazy', Ye says he's going to 'beat Pete Davidson's ass'.

While West has remained quiet regarding his evident dislike for Davidson in recent months, the 29-year-old's recent jibe may reignite their feud.
