If you're on Twitter, then you will have seen the latest Gossip Girl meme. Like the best memes, it's simple yet effective, featuring a still of Upper East Siders Serena van der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf. Now Serena herself has got involved in the action and participated in the global online trend.

Blake Lively, who rose to fame in the teen drama, has since found success in films like A Simple Favour and The Age Of Adaline. But she clearly has fond memories of her Gossip Girl days, and posted an Instagram story featuring the meme. Whereas previous examples see Serena ask a question, with Blair answers with words scrambled from the title's opener - like 'Help me I'm lost,' followed by 'gps girl', or 'What's yes in Spanish?' followed by 'Si, girl', Blake's version is more current.

In her contribution, Serena asks Blair 'What should I wear to the supermarket'. Blair's reply? 'Gloves girl.'

The response is, of course, a reference to safety during the coronavirus pandemic, but Blake - who self-styles on the red carpet - is also partial to a pair of leather gloves for her glamorous appearances.

Blake's husband - actor Ryan Reynolds - loves Gossip Girl too. Asked recently if he had watched the programme, he tweeted: 'I didn't watch. I drank it through my eyes.' We think that means he's a fan, anyway.

It has been years since Gossip Girl signed off with a trademark xoxo, when the individual behind the anonymous blog was revealed as... You know what? We're not going to say. Not because of spoilers - you've had years to catch up. But because we're still not really over it.

Will Leighton Meester get involved too and complete the classic Serena/Blair pairing? That's one thing we'll never tell. Xoxo.

Rachel Bilson and Bill Hader

The actors, who starred in 2013 rom-com The To Do List, are an unusual pairing to most - but both have recently divorced from their long-term partners. Bill was married to Maggie Carey, who directed The To Do List, and they share three kids together. Rachel - who has a 5-year-old girl - also recently separated from husband Hayden Christensen in 2017 after 10 years together. It was reported by TMZ that the new couple were spending the holidays together - after they were spotted holding hands in Bill's hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma. To end all the speculation though, they confirmed the romance at the Golden Globes. Sadly, they then split during the summer.

In October, they made their relationship Instagram official, with a cute snap of them in Disneyland. They've also made the classic Hollywood couple move of kissing at a basketball game, so they are totally legit guys. So legit, in fact, that in September they got married at a surprise ceremony in Las Vegas.
