Spice Girl Mel B qualified second highest after the public vote on US reality show Dancing With the Stars on Tuesday night.

She and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy were the second safe couple after the public vote, behind Helio Castroneves and Julianne Hough.

The second casualty of Dancing With the Stars was male model Albert Reed, the ‘face’ of Abercrombie & Fitch clothing.

But there was a sombre note to Tuesday’s show as the presenters announced that Jane Seymour wouldn’t be taking part because she’d flown back to England after the death of her mother. It’s likely that Seymour will return for next week’s shwo.

Mel B’s been a sensation in the first two weeks of the show, with the public and judges loving her performances. Bruno Tonioli said on Monday: “You have the twinkle-toes of Ginger Rogers. What a makeover. It worked!”
