It seems Mel B hasn't let her days as Scary Spice go to waste. The busy mother of four has revealed that she is always up for a dance-off with her girls.

The former Spice Girl has three daughters, Phoenix, Angel and Madison, and is also step-mum to husband Stephen Belafonte's daughter Giselle. 

The 37-year-old judge on the Australian X Factor likes to dance around to the band's old hits with her brood.

The next generation of Spice

Mel B (a.k.a Scary Spice) has quite the growing brood with her husband Stephen Belafonte ... (Clockwise from bottom left) 12-year-old Phoenix, her eldest from her first marriage, her nine-year-old step-daughter Giselle, five-year-old Angel, from her relationship with Eddie Murphy, and the latest addition to their family 11-month-old Madison.

"I don't know (their favourite Spice Girls song), I've never asked them. Sometimes they put on the songs and we have little dance-offs!" she told the British edition of OK!

Despite her work commitments in Australia, she takes her children with her whenever she can and values spending time with her girls.

"You just have to go with it week by week," she said about balancing her job and family life.

"But in Australia I can take my kids to work with me. There's a creche on set at X Factor Australia and my kids love the chaos backstage. They love coming out to the audience and saying hi in the ad breaks. It's completely fun for them and I get to be with them."

The star's jet-setting lifestyle can make it difficult for her to plan special family occasions however.

So far she is unsure where she and Belafonte will be spending Christmas with the kids.

"I haven't decided yet," she said.

"We might have a holiday with the kids in Fiji or we might head back to Los Angeles or maybe even the UK. We haven't really full-on decided."
