Saoirse Ronan appears to have let success go to her head in the first promo for her upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live.

The Oscar-nominated actress (23) will host this weekend's episode of the iconic comedy show and, in a tongue-in-cheek promo for the episode, she can be seen gazing out of the window of the show's New York offices at the people below.

"My God, this is so exciting. All these people have come out to see me," she tells cast member Cecily Strong.

However, the comedian bursts her bubble when she tells her what the crowds are actually there for.

"I think they're here for the Christmas tree lighting," she says.

Ronan is not convinced and insists the people are there to catch a glimpse of her after her critically lauded performance in the drama Lady Bird.

"Oh no, I don't think they are. You can see all the little elves down there, Santa's little helpers, they've come out," Ronan says.

"Those are just people," Strong tells her. "They're far away, so they look small."

"You know, I've heard the elves are, like, massive fans of Lady Bird," Ronan responds. She will host the programme alongside rock stars U2, who will be making a guest appearance on the show.

Meanwhile, the star could pocket a profit of more than €160,000 as she places her Dublin seaside home on the market this week.

Ronan bought the swish terraced property at Thormanby Grove in Howth at the beginning of 2013, when she was just 19, paying €334,000.

Now the stylish three-bedroom house is being marketed at €495,000.
