Los Angeles - Lindsay Lohan has credited Oprah Winfrey with having an "amazing" impact on her life.

The recovering actress - who has her own reality series Lindsay on the TV star's OWN network - has described the broadcaster as a "guiding light" who has been a calming influence in her life.

Speaking on The Ellen DeGeneres show, she said: "I speak to her almost every day and she's just... she's been so amazing to me ... Just, you know, for everything.

"Before Lindsay premiered I started getting really, like, panicked about it and I just called her and she was just talking me through it... and she got me really into meditation.

"She's just been a really strong guiding light and force to me as a friend and someone that I admire."

Meanwhile, Oprah was seen on Sunday's episode of the show encouraging Lindsay to "prove the naysayers wrong".

She said: "You are going to have to prove the naysayers wrong.

"The vultures are waiting to pick your bones. And that shouldn't frighten you, that should liberate you, because if I were you, I wouldn't let them have me."
