Elizabeth Berkley has confirmed that the Saved By The Bell cast are still in touch with one another - 24 years after they shot to fame.

Elizabeth played Jessie Spano in the hit teen comedy and despite three decades passing, she has confirmed they "still have each other's backs".

The actress is currently starring on US reality show Dancing With The Stars and has even added that her former cast mates, including Mark-Paul Gosselaar [Zack Morris], Mario Lopez [ AC Slater] and Tiffani Theissen [Kelly Kapowski], may visit the studio to cheer her on.

Speaking to American magazine People, Elizabeth said: "We do check in, and we always have each other's backs. It's a really special thing."

She added: "Mark-Paul just had a baby, which is the only reason he hasn't been here. Mario has been travelling. Tiffani – she just finished working. She's a very dear friend. We're just trying to figure out [the time]."

Last month, Mark-Paul and his wife Catriona welcomed their third child into the world - a little boy called Dekker Edward. Elizabeth described Mark-Paul as an "amazing father".

Talking about her Lark Voorhies [Lisa Turtle], she added that they have not seen each other since 2009. She said: "I've always loved her."

Meanwhile, since taking to the dance floor on DWTS, Elizabeth's SBTB co-stars have been tweeting her with their support.

Prior to an episode, Tiffani said: "Sending good vibes to my girl @ElizBerkley for tonight's #DWTS."

Mario also invited Elizabeth on his entertainment TV show Extra, telling fans: "Tango time with my girl @ElizBerkley on @ExtraTV! So proud of you..."

While on set, the pair - who played on/off couple in SBTB - posed for a picture together as Elizabeth demonstrated her dancing moves.

We're so pleased to hear that they're all friends still!
