Lindsay Lohan's parents have been banned from appearing on the actress' upcoming reality Tv show.

The Mean Girls star, who successfully completed a 90-day stint in rehab in July (13), has struck a deal with Oprah Winfrey's OWN Network to film her struggle to rebuild her life.

It has now emerged the star's estranged parents, Michael and Dina Lohan, have been axed from the series because producers feared their presence would confuse viewers.

According to editors at, the makers of the show have vowed to focus entirely on Lohan's recovery rather than her family issues.

The actress is reportedly set to receive a $2 million (£1.3 million) paycheck for the series.
