“Strictly 2018” – AN ADORABLE video shows the moment an elderly couple shared a special moment by dancing to Dean Martin in a busy shopping centre.
Eleanor and Les Stocken asked performer Lewis Carroll from integrated stage school Music 4 U to play them a song during their visit to Aberdeen Trinity Centre yesterday.
The 20-year-old sang You’re Nobody til Somebody Loves You by Dean Martin so that the adorable couple could dance away like no one was watching.
With Lewis’ dulcet tones heard in the background, the couple can be seen swaying across the floor arm in arm, with Eleanor singing along.
The couple from Northfield, Aberdeen continue to sway back and forth, clearly enjoying the moment with grins spread across their face.
A group has gathered next to the dancing couple and other passers by can resist a watch.
The original video has been viewed 40,000 times and shared 372 times.
Social media users have flooded the post with lovely comments.
