Valentine's Day in the Zoo

Archant

The penguin enclosure at London Zoo may not be the most romantic place in London to propose to your girlfriend – but it was the perfect location for one Valentine’s Day lothario, who popped the question surrounded by the cute creatures earlier today.

Check out the video above to see if the chap’s Valentine’s Day wish granted by his stunned girlfriend.
