Los Angeles - Lindsay Lohan will appear as a guest star on TV musical comedy Glee, her spokesperson said on Tuesday, in the latest step of a comeback for the once rising star whose career has been tarnished by drinking, drugs and legal troubles.

Lohan's spokesperson declined to give details of the episode involving the Mean Girls actress. But entertainment website said Lohan would play herself and serve as a celebrity judge when the Glee choir performs at a key contest toward the end of this current season.

The Glee guest stint marks a turnaround for Lohan, who was the butt of a joke on the show in 2010 when actress Gwyneth Paltrow's school teacher character Holly Holliday delivered a sharp quip about Lohan's many stints in rehab.
