Mel C has revealed she has snubbed 'Strictly Come Dancing' each year because the pay is rubbish

Mel C has turned down 'Strictly Come Dancing' every year because the pay is "s***".

The Spice Girls singer has revealed she has been on the bosses of the BBC One Ballroom and Latin show's hit list for a few years now and while she has refused the offer each time, it is the only reality show she could see herself on.

According to the Daily Star newspaper, she said: "'Strictly' is really the only one of those shows that I would consider and I have had a meeting with them - they ask me every year to do it."

The 'Wannabe' hitmaker - who is gearing up to release her first solo album in four years, 'Version Of Me' - is also put off by accepting the gig because she would be worried about being shamed in front of millions of viewers because of her dance moves.

She continued: "The problem is if you do 'Strictly' it's so high profile and you'll find yourself in the sidebar of shame every day. And the money's s***!"

However, should she ever change her mind, she wouldn't be the first Spice Girls band member to compete on a dancing show, as Mel B did America's version, 'Dancing with the Stars' in 2007.

Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli - who are judges on both of the dancing shows - were big fans of Mel B who made it to the final three.

Len, 72, - who will leave 'Strictly Come Dancing' after the current series, said her place in the final was "justly deserved".

And Italian dance enthusiast, Bruno, 60, said: "Melanie, I cannot believe what an accomplished dancer you have become in these past few months. Technically you have improved incredibly and your visual impact ... I tell you, stunning."
