Lindsay Lohan has been criticised for her 'lack of local knowledge' when it comes to guessing identities on The Masked Singer Australia.

And speaking to The Daily Telegraph's Stellar magazine on Sunday, co-judge Dannii Minogue admitted that she's definitely had to explain who some of the stars are.

The 48-year-old however commended the American singer and actress, 33, for doing extensive research before each episode.

'[I've] absolutely [had to explain who the unveiled stars are to Lindsay],' Dannii told Stellar. 'The same if we were doing the show in another country.'

'But Lindsay studied really hard. She came up with some great guesses,' the younger sister of Kylie Minogue continued. 

'She's generated enough column inches and interest about the show to get people interested enough to watch.'
