Kanye West is apparently helping Kim Kardashian to prepare for her Saturday Night Live hosting gig this weekend, despite the pair beginning divorce proceedings earlier this year.

Kim is set to host SNL this Saturday [9 October], with Kanye reportedly already in New York to help her get ready for the big night.

According to sources, "Kim is nervous about hosting SNL, it's a big challenge but she is determined to be a success," Page Six reports.

"Kanye is quietly advising her on her performance, her opening monologue, even her costumes for the show," the insider continues.

It's thought Kim will start rehearsals for the programme in the days running up to recording, and it looks like Kanye could be on hand to help.

Saturday Night Live celebrity guest hosts are usually required to deliver the show's iconic opening monologue, as well as performing in comedy sketches. So, does this mean we'll see a little Kanye influence in Kim's performance?

The news comes among reports that Kim and Kanye are "working on rebuilding the foundation of their relationship", according to sources.

However, another insider dispelled the rumours earlier this week, telling US Weekly: "They have more of a friendship and working relationship as they coparent. They’re not back together." The source also confirmed that Kanye is "still styling Kim", which means his hand in her SNL performance and costumes makes sense.

Kim's new TV hosting role was initially announced last month, as she joined a number of other celebrity guest hosts lined up to present the comedy sketch show.

The Skims founder broke the news on Instagram, sharing a picture of SNL's iconic post-it note pinboard on her Stories. She, of course, seemed suitably excited-slash-nervous about the new gig, writing on her Story, "OMFG no turning back now!!!! LOL I'm hosting SNL!!!!!!"

On top of Kim hosting, SNL also announced that the KUWTK star would be joined by Halsey as the show's musical guest, so we're looking forward to seeing these two on stage together too.

Wonder whether Kanye will be in the audience?
