Mel B is set to take part in US TV show 'Dancing With The Stars'. The former Spice Girl has been lined up as a potential contestant for the hit series - the US version of the BBC's 'Strictly Come Dancing' - following in the footsteps of fellow British contestant Heather Mills. Friends of the star, who recently gave birth to her second daughter Angel Iris, hope it will take her mind off her paternity battle with actor Eddie Murphy.
Mel's publicist was quoted in Britain's The Sun newspaper as saying: "Eddie hasn't been in contact yet, but Mel's been busy with the US version of 'Strictly Come Dancing' and her daughters." Mel, 32, dated Eddie briefly last year. The actor ended the relationship abruptly in December, and has repeatedly denied Mel's claims he is Angel Iris' father, since her birth eight weeks ago. Distraught Mel is seeking a DNA test to prove Eddie is the father. ABC, the US TV network behind 'Dancing With The Stars', insist no potential contestants have received formal offers yet.
