On the set of iCarly, Jennette McCurdy developed an eating disorder.

The 30-year-old former actress, who rose to popularity as a teenager starring Sam Puckett on the popular Nickelodeon sitcom with Miranda Cosgrove,

claimed that the amount of food her character had to consume as a running joke left her feeling "anxious."

She expressed: "It is tragically funny. My persona was always eating, which caused me to feel so worried. 

I made several attempts to get in touch with the producers and asked if we could dial back on that things."

The "Sam and Cat" star continued by saying that although she tried to speak with "iCarly" top management, 

she was unable to address the situation head-on.

 As a result, she began to feel "mocked" by her own life when viewers would "poke fun"

At her for how much food her character would consume on the programme.
