Melanie C is officially the second Spice Girl to make it to DWTS

However, she is not the first Spice Girl to make it on to the DWTS stage, as Mel B was part of one of the show's earliest seasons, the fifth one, and placed as the runner-up.

Lara asked Mel C whether she'd received any advice from her fellow Spice Girl about appearing on the show, and she said that she did.

"She told me, 'It's so incredible, you have to enjoy every minute and every moment of it.'" she said, also talking about how they were rehearsing for a tour in Los Angeles in 2007 when Mel B was also rehearsing for the show.
