Tyra Banks and Alfonso Ribeiro's reunion on 'Shake It Up'

[Via family-room.ew.com...]

We told you a few months ago about a behind-the-scenes Fresh Prince of Bel Air reunion of sorts on the set of Shake it Up but here’s a first look at Tyra Banks and Alfonso Ribeiro on screen together for the first time on the Disney show in the Feb. 24 episode (9pm ET/PT). In the episode, CeCe (Bella Thorne) and Rocky (Zendaya) help Miss Burke (Banks) win over her crush, Mr. Zigfeld (Ribeiro). This is a recurring character for Banks, and Ribeiro has directed a couple of episodes of the show.

Take a look below for a trip down memory lane at the two together 20 years ago, when Banks played Will Smith’s girlfriend.

This is also the episode that Carly Rae Jepsen guest stars in as herself.
