Mel B has swapped life as Scary Spice to become Lady Spice in an episode of US Dancing With The Stars on Monday night.

The Spice Girl, who is one of the favourites to win the dancing competition, had to take etiquette lessons to improve her posture, as she prepared to do the Quickstep.

“I want to show America I can be a lady. I’m going from Scary Spice to Lady Spice,” Mel said before her performance, smiling.

And her efforts paid off, as the judges awarded her top marks. Both the judges from BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing – Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli – gave Mel eight out of a possible 10, as her husband Stephen Belafonte watched proudly from the audience.

Len said: “You held the floor beautifully,” and Bruno added: “You have the twinkle-toes of Ginger Rogers. What a makeover. It worked!”

Mel’s response? “Keeping it all together was difficult, but I’m happy. I’m very very happy!”
