Icarly star Miranda Cosgrove is heading back to Tv as Christina Ricci's daughter.

The teenager has been added to the cast of NBC comedy Girlfriend in a Coma.

Ricci will play a woman who wakes from a 17-year coma and realises she has a daughter from a pregnancy she was unaware of.

Cosgrove starred in iCarly for seven seasons before the show came to an end last year (12), as the actress embarked on a college degree at the University of Southern California.
