Award-winning US comedian Jon Stewart has banned Hugh Grant from The Daily Show.

Hugh Grant banned from TV show

The funnyman and long-time host has revealed the British actor was his most unpleasant guest - and he will not be inviting him back.

He made the announcement during an interview with fellow comedian Stephen Colbert at the Montclair Film Festival in New Jersey last week, after opening up about his 2009 encounter with Grant, who was booked on the show to promote his film Did You Hear About the Morgans?

Stewart recalled: "He's giving everyone s**t the whole time, and he's a big pain in the a**."

The comedian was particularly upset when the movie star criticised the movie clip Stewart showed as the actor walked out onstage in the studio.

Stewart added: "(He said), 'What is that clip? It's a terrible clip'. Well, then make a better f****** movie."

The comic then told Colbert he would "never" have Grant back on his show.

Hearing he'd been banned from The Daily Show, Grant attempted to make amends via Twitter, writing: "Turns out my inner crab got the better of me with TV producer in 09. Unforgivable. J Stewart correct to give me kicking."
