"Oh my god! I gave Harry Styles jungle worms!"

iGo One Direction (originally titled iGot Jungle Worms[4][5]) is the 2nd episode of Season 5 and the 96th episode overall of iCarly.


Miranda with One Direction

Carly gets sick with Jungle Worms on a vacation. Although she is cured of her symptoms after two days, Dr. Dresdin warns that she might still be contagious. When the British-Irish boyband One Direction accepts an invitation to iCarly, band member Harry gets sick after he drinks from Carly's water bottle. He's still not better after a week and Carly takes care of him. At the Groovy Smoothie, the others are wondering why Harry isn't better after a week. Sam tell the others how Harry is better but just faking his illness because he likes Carly taking care of him. In order to get him to confess, they make up a lie that they want to accept Gibby, a huge One Direction fan, into the band. Harry is so shocked by the idea that he stops pretending to be sick, and One Direction performs their song "What Makes You Beautiful" on iCarly.


Spencer finds an exercise machine on the junkyard. It catches the eye of an attractive woman named Justine, so Spencer claims to be a personal trainer in order to impress her. Unfortunately for him, she doesn't want to train, but rather sends her bratty daughter Bethany. Spencer eventually talks to the girl about how she has to be nicer and tries to give her a makeover, but fails.

Guest Stars


  • This episode's title originally was iGot Jungle Worms.[6][7]
  • On the Nickelodeon USA guide, it uses iGot Jungle Worms instead of iGo One Direction.
  • This is the first episode in Season 5 to feature the new sequence, which has a few changes to it. Alongside the new clips from season 5, these include:
    • Spencer's blowtorch now shines for a moment before the brighter purple-tinted "explosion" into the iCarly logo; the flame is missing and the sparkles are rendered differently; coming out towards the viewer.
    • As the "iCarly" logo shines out, the whole sequence is flashed out as the scene of Carly getting blinded by Spencer's lights is played.
    • More of the season 3 clips are replaced with the season 5 clips.
    • T-Bo is now in the end shot, the scene of him and the iCarly gang eating soup from iApril Fools.
  • Intestinal parasitic worms exist, but they are called helminths, not "jungle worms"; that was just made up for the episode.
  • One Direction guest stars and performs their song "What Makes You Beautiful". It was confirmed by a tweet from spinorbinmusic on January 26, 2012. [8]

  • Dan said, "...the One Direction guys are good, funny actors. When I booked them to appear on iCarly, I didn't know if they could act or not. I took a chance, and I was thrilled with their work.
