Nicola Sturgeon will follow in the footsteps of Tony Blair and Gordon Brown today by appearing on on the US satirical news programme The Daily Show.

Scotland’s First Minister is in America until Thursday, and will undertake a series of engagements in New York and Washington DC.

The SNP leader is due to be interviewed on the late night chat show hosted by comedian Jon Stewart.

The programme’s website listed her as a “comedian” at the weekend before quickly rectifying the mistake.

Unlike Mr Blair and Mr Brown, Ms Sturgeon is taking part in the show while still in office.

Later she will host a reception to kick off Glasgow School of Art’s fundraising appeal in the US before heading to Washington.

There she will address an audience at the World Bank, attend a meeting at the International Monetary Fund, visit the US Holocaust Museum and make a speech to the Council on Foreign Relations.

Yesterday Ms Sturgeon visited a school in Brooklyn, New York, to learn how standards in Scottish schools can be improved.
