Spice Girl Mel C has revealed she's turned down Strictly Come Dancing.

The singer has claimed she's been asked every year to take part in the series but always said no.

Chatting to the Daily Star newspaper, Mel C explained: “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 problem is if you do Strictly it’s so high profile and you’ll find yourself in the sidebar of shame every day.”

She added: “And the money’s s***!”

Unlike many other shows, Strictly Come Dancing pays its stars flat fee regardless of how famous they are.

But the fees paid out increase the longer a celebrity says in the show, encouraging them to actually work hard to perform well.

It's understood that celebs that go out early will be earning around £25,000 although the winner would enjoy £100,000.

Strictly Come Dancing 2016 continues this Saturday and Sunday night on BBC One.
