Hot to trotter: The pampered pink piglets who are hogging the limelight

These little piglets really love to hog the limelight - as this series of cute photographs show.

Dispelling the myth that pigs are dirty, these portraits capture the pretty porkers looking their best - proving that pigs can be divas too.

The hilarious shots capture the posing piglets hogging a huge pile of chocolate - before working off the calories while running on a treadmill.

Another image shows one little piggy who's clearly been to market - posing with a pile of shopping bags.

The adorable images were taken by photographer Bob Elsdale and creative director, Holly Brown - whose company, Wildside, dedicates itself to photographing and caring for young animals.

‘They become so used to human contact that having their photo becomes a game to them - all the pigs we've had have loved playing up to the camera.
He added that the pigs tend to be divas who love having their picture taken and that they never make the pigs pose if they're not happy and enjoying it.

While they're often happy to play with the props it can take hours to get exactly the right pose, he said.

The family persuade the pigs to pose in the hilarious poses by rewarding them with their favourite treat - Camembert.
‘Our first piglet, Rosie, came to live with us when she was just four days old, and became part of the family in no time.

‘She was probably one of the best fed piglets on the planet and had a particular love of Camembert - she was taught to sit, lie down and stay, all on the promise of cheese.
