Mean Girls star Lindsay Lohan will make her West End debut this year.

Speaking to the New York Times newspaper, 27-year-old Lohan revealed she has been in London for the last few weeks rehearsing for her role as Karen, in black-comedy Speed-the-Plow.

She said: ''It's the first time I've done a stage play or anything like that. I'm nervous but I'm excited.''

The original 1988 production of Speed-the-Plow starred Joe Mantegna as Bobby Gould, Ron Silver as Charlie Fox, and Madonna as Karen.
