Oliver to take over The Daily Show

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.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Leo:

Trust your intuition about a domestic matter. If you think it's time to get a new place, start looking for one. You could find a home that cultivates tranquillity and relaxation. Escaping the fray will be a relief. Although you enjoy socialising, you also crave private time. Being able to watch movies, read books and listen to music replenishes your batteries. A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
