Pensioner becomes dancing internet sensation

He's the twinkle toes of Winchester - the groover and the shaker making everyone smile. 87 year old Ronald Burgess has ballroom danced since he was 15 - and had stopped his dancing ways completely - up until now.

Ronald is now regularly dancing on the High Street. A video of the pensioner has been viewed thousands of times - and he's become an overnight sensation. Divya Kohli reports.

A litter of puppies at Dogs Trust Salisbury is ready to dance off to new homes, after staff named them after the judges of Strictly Come Dancing.

The 9 week old Lurcher cross pups have been nicknamed - wait for it -Craig Revel ‘Paw-wood’, Len ‘Gooddog’, Darcey ‘Bushey Tail’ and ‘Boneo Tail-ioli’

Staff at the re-homing centre hope they will dazzle potential new owners with their ‘jazz paws’ and find a home worthy of a perfect 10.

“The Strictly pups are an adorable bunch with so much energy, they have the staff dancing in circles around them but we wouldn’t have it any other way! Like the celebrities on Strictly, they could benefit from a little extra training and are sure to keep new owners on their toes, but they have the potential to be the stars of any household.”
