US comedy show Saturday Night Live has made light of Theresa May's Brexit woes.
Everything goes wrong for the prime minister in the TV sketch, with children giving her the thumbs down as they pass her in the street.
She gets a kiss on the lips from Winston Churchill, played by Game Of Thrones star Kit Harington, just before the finale.
In one scene, Theresa May, played by Kate McKinnon, sits down to eat fish and chips in a park but a bird overhead defecates on her food.
In others, the prime minister is splashed with muddy water from a puddle by a passing taxi and is seen dancing in a body suit.
