Lindsay Lohan has joined Harry Potter's Rupert Grint and Hot Fuzz's Nick Frost as part of the cast of Sky 1's new comedy Sick Note. The Mean Girls star will join the show for its second series, with the first due to air in autumn this year.

The show follows Daniel Glass (Grint), who is a compulsive liar and stuck in a failing relationship and a dead-end job. He is also wrongly diagnosed with a terminal illness by his incompetent doctor (Frost), and when the truth emerges, his doctor convinces him to hide the misdiagnosis in a lie that spirals out of control.

Lohan will play Katerina West, the daughter of Glass' boss Kenny (Don Johnson), in the second series, which has begun filming.

Sky's Head of Comedy Jon Mountague said: "One lie leads to the next in this unsettlingly brilliant comedy that will hook viewers in and have them on the very edge of their seats. Filming for series two is already under way, and we're delighted to confirm Lindsay Lohan will be joining Rupert and Nick in this stellar comedy cast."

Lohan has been keeping busy of late, having also landed her own reality TV show called The Anti-Social Network. The show will see her hijack people's social media in a Punk'd style.

Sick Note will premiere its first run this fall on Sky 1 and NOW TV.
