Mel B’s Dancing with the Stars partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy is joining the Spice Girls – sort of.

In addition to competing on the ABC smash, Melanie Brown (aka Scary Spice) is also gearing up for the forthcoming Spice Girls reunion tour with Baby, Ginger, Posh, and Sporty. Hunky Maks has been accompanying Mel to practices with the girls so she can juggle both.

“I take Maks with me to my Spice Girl rehearsals,” Mel reveals to OK! after the Sept. 25 taping. “They think he’s fantastic. Of course — he’s my partner! I’m dedicated to learning and listening to Maks."

And what does he think of her? “She’s a big bundle of fun,” he tells OK!.

Catch the results show of Dancing with the Stars tonight on ABC to see if Mel survives! The Spice Girls reunion tour kicks off Dec. 2 in Vancouver.
