Lindsay Lohan is to make her West End debut this year.

The 'Mean Girls' actress has been in London for several weeks and has now revealed she is in the city to prepare for a potential appearance in stage production 'Speed-the-Plow', a venture she is both ''nervous'' and ''excited'' about.

She told the New York Times newspaper: ''It's the first time I've done a stage play or anything like that. I'm nervous but I'm excited.''

The production is a satirical take on the dreams and strategies of Hollywood executives and will reportedly open in November.

It was revealed earlier this week that Lindsay - who has been changing hotels in London every three weeks - is house-hunting in the city as she wants to find a more permanent base.

Insiders claim the 27-year-old star is hoping to stay in the city for at least a year.

Former model and reality TV star Tom Kilbey - who Lindsay is rumoured to be dating - has been on several nights out with the actress in London and says she is a big fan of the local ''scene''.

He said: ''I met Lindsay four years ago through mutual friends when I was working in LA.

''She's actually really down to earth and cool. I think she likes the scene over here.''
