Nickelodeon bosses to give One Direction their own show?
Not content with pursuing their record breaking music career, it seems that One Direction could soon become TV stars in their own right too.
Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson recently traveled to America, to record a guest appearance on Nickelodeon show iCarly, alongside Miranda Cosgrove.
Insiders are now reporting that network bosses were so impressed not just by their performance, but also by the reaction the boys got by their thousands of American fans, that they are keen to sign them for their own series.
The X Factor group sang their debut single ‘What makes You Beautiful’ for the special one off episode and the storyline was that harry Styles fell for Carly, while appearing on her web show and then pretended to be ill so he could get some extra attention from the brunette beauty.

A source told Now magazine that industry bigwigs were impressed with the singers’ acting and also the hype that surrounded them and explained:
“Simon [Cowell] has vowed to launch them on the US X Factor, while Nickelodeon are in talks to give them their own show.”
However Liam, Niall, Zayn and Louis may need to be careful, because it is looking more and more likely that the bosses behind the band may get their wish, after it was reported recently that they want Harry Styles to take over as front man.
