John Oliver is taking over hosting the Daily Show while Jon Stewart makes a film

Jon Stewart's Daily Show sidekick John Oliver is taking over the programme for two months while its host makes his new film.

The UK-born comic has been a regular on the hit US show since 2006 and will take centre stage from Monday June 10, with Armando Iannucci among his first guests.

He said: "Don't worry, it's still going to be everything that you love about The Daily Show, just without the thing that you love the most about it."

Stewart is taking time off to direct his first feature film, Rosewater, about a journalist imprisoned in Iran.
