After weeks of speculation, Lindsay Lohan has confirmed her move to London.

The 28-year-old actress, who previously revealed that she had fallen in love with the capital after spending a lot of time in the UK, is now keen to lay down more permanent roots.

"I think I am making the move to come over here," she told the BBC. "I've noticed when I'm watching the news here and such, you guys have such a different outlook."

Her impending move across the Atlantic is also spearheaded by her desire to turn the focus back to her career. She admits she feels let down by America and under constant scrutiny on her home soil.

"In the U.S., starting at 5 p.m., it's TMZ and all of these shows that are just talking about people's personal lives that are in the industry," she continued.

"Here, I don't notice any of that. It's more news and politics and music," Lohan added. "It feels really good to be able to turn on the TV and not see everything be about gossip."

It has been a turbulent few months for the 28-year-old, who has previously battled with drink and drug dependency, but with her upcoming West End debut in David Mamet's Speed-the-Plow her career prospects is already looking brighter.

"I think you go through phases in life and you hit this wall where you kind of want to do something new and experience something different," she said of the new challenge, "and I think I just am in a place now where it's the right time."

Although she has been busy with business meetings about modelling and TV gigs, the Mean Girls actress still finds time to have some fun.

She reportedly gave onlookers an eyeful when she toured Selfridges naked during a recent trip to London.

''She was laughing her head off and literally giving staff the run-around as customers looked on,'' a source told the Sun.
