Mel B lands new job as an Access Hollywood correspondent

Melanie BrownMel B has landed a new job - as a correspondent on US television show Access Hollywood.

The Scary Spice star will cover the new series of talent contest Dancing With The Stars for the daily entertainment broadcast.

Mel, 32, is a former contestant on Dancing, which is based on Britain's highly popular Strictly Come Dancing series.

The singer will cover everything from behind-the-scenes rehearsals to post-show interviews, Access Hollywood officials said.

Mel - real name Melanie Brown - made it to the final rounds of the fifth series of the hit ABC show last year alongside dance partner Maksim Chmerkvoskiy.

She said of the new role: "I had such a wonderful experience on 'Dancing With the Stars' last season and I'm looking forward to talking to all of this year's contestants about their journeys and experiences along the way and dropping in on all their rehearsals, but this time on the [other] side of the mic."

The new season of Dancing With The Stars starts in the US on March 17.

Among the dozen contestants this time are Police Academy star Steve Guttenberg Priscilla Presley, and tennis ace Monica Seles. It comes as the Spice Girls world reunion tour winds down.

Mel is also working on a new solo album and is expected to launch a fashion line later this year.

Access Hollywood executive producer Rob Silverstein said: "She has a magnetic and endearing personality and she knows first-hand what all these contestants are going through, which will make for some fun and candid interviews."
