It appears that they were practising for the Inter Fleet Strictly Come Dancing competition, on the helicopter deck, and during the now famous Passa Doble 'Sargeant Drag' the ship lurched slightly to starboard and they fell overboard. Unfortunately the one in full sequinned dance dress with all the frills and lace on it was overcome by the emotion of the whole event and had to be revived. A Navy spokesman - fighting back tears - addressed reporters saying, they were real contenders, we had such high hopes for them. We were even thinking of pitting them up against the 3 Para Mortars formation team. Already the Royal Navy switchboard has been inundated with near-frantic RAF Regiment members who had been hoping to challenge the Navy to a 'Black Bottom' in the new year.
