Lindsay Lohan has revealed she’ll be attending the Melbourne Cup in November, following her success as a judge on Channel 10’s The Masked Singer. 

After Taylor Swift sensationally cancelled her scheduled performance at the event last month, the Hollywood star, 33, is now set to the main attraction this year. 

‘I’m coming to Melbourne for the Melbourne Cup! It’s my first time, I’ve never been so be nice to me,’ Lindsay told Hughesy & Kate with Ed Kavalee on Friday.

While speaking on the phone with the The Hit Network radio show from America, Lindsay continued: ‘I don’t know what to expect!’

Dave Hughes, who also stars as a judge on The Masked Singer, said: ‘It’s a massive event and you’ll be the talk of the nation! It’s the race that stops the nation.’

Lindsay responded: ‘I’ll get to see some of the girls from the Yummy Mummies who are friends of mine! And Dave, I’ll get to meet some of your family.’

Backlash: Taylor cancelled her appearance at the horse-racing event due to her ‘logistically impossible’ schedule …after she faced major criticism from animal rights activists

Shortly after it was announced in September that Taylor Swift would be performing two songs at the prestigious event, the songstress cancelled.  

Michael Gudinski from Mushroom Events said in a statement: ‘Regrettably, Taylor is no longer able to make it to this year’s Melbourne Cup.

‘Changes to her Asian promo schedule have made it logistically impossible for her to be here. To all of Taylor’s fans, we hope to see Taylor in Australia in 2020.’ 

The announcement came after Taylor faced major criticism from animal rights activists after it was announced she will be headlining the horse racing event.

‘We’re family, we’re all on a group chat, we’re all friends,’ said Lindsay, dispelling rumours of on-set rifts once and for all.

‘I think that’s the beauty of something like [The Masked Singer],’ she added.

‘We all stay in touch, and I think that’s so important because when you do movies, people fall out of touch – and that’s sad really.’
