    Default Gorgeous seals Fred and Ginger

    Flippers entwined in a courtly embrace, two seals perform an underwater version of Strictly Come Dancing.
    And their graceful routines win top marks from the judges - in this case crowds of Christmas holidaymakers.
    The one-year-old pair of common seals arrived at the North Carolina Zoological Park in April and soon became a hit with staff and visitors through their aquatic displays.
    Fred and Ginger perform another aquatic routine, enthralling the crowds

    Before long they had been nicknamed Fred and Ginger, after Astaire and Rogers.
    'When I approached their pool and saw them swimming and dancing together like this I really got excited,' said zoo volunteer Valerie Abbott, who took this picture.
    'I just watched their patterns for a few minutes and then started shooting with my camera.
    'These two can always be seen dancing together around their exhibit - they are really a lot of fun to watch.'

    The graceful seals gained top marks from the crowd when they took to the water to perform their own 'Strictly Come Dancing' routine

    The secret of the perfect dancing partnership, in this case at least, seems to be a healthy diet based largely on seafood.
    'They eat fish and lots of it,' added Miss Abbott.

    'They get some in the morning and then in the afternoon they go through a training exercise where they are rewarded with more fish.'

    Taking a break: Even dancing seals need to get away from the limelight sometimes
