Prepare to meet the strangest match made in bestie mate heaven in Nickelodeon's all new Sam & Cat.

Sam (Jennette McCurdy, iCarly) is loud, fearless and always ready for action. Cat (Ariana Grande, Victorious) is as sweet as pie and wouldn't hurt a fly. How these two came to be such good friends is a complete mystery.

Their unlikely friendship keeps them busy with a whole bunch of fun and wacky adventures to embark on. But with very little cash, it soon becomes clear that they need a well-paid job to continue their escapades.

Setting up their very own babysitting business, the fun loving pair find a solution to their empty-pocket problems. And with an extra bit of money to spend, it can only mean more exciting adventures are on the horizon for the most mismatched buddies around.

Watch Sam & Cat on Nickelodeon (HD channel 604, Sky channel 632) every Monday at 6pm from 14 October 2013.
