Canary Wharf Ice Rink hosts Cleo Rocos in lead up to Valentines Day

Local resident and celebrity Cleo Rocos recently went for a spin around the picturesque Canary Wharf Ice Rink, sponsored by BGC Partners.

Rocos, former star of Celebrity Big Brother and the Kenny Everett Show, proved to be a tenacious skater with a will to ‘get it right;’ she persevered until she could go it alone.

Canary Wharf Ice Rink Managing Director Brian Jokat said, “She is very fond of Canary Wharf and although she has made previous rink side visits to the Moose Bar, this was the first time she challenged herself on the ice. She did very well, but may be nursing a bruise or too!”

The Canary Wharf Ice Rink has always been popular for couples on Valentines Day and has even been the setting for a marriage proposal. This year it offers a free flower for those who ‘skate with a date’ on Friday the 13th, Saturday the 14th and Sunday the 15th of February, and drink specials of £5 for two Moosehead Canadian Beers or £5 for two Bellinis at the adjacent Moose Bar.

“The Canary Wharf Ice Rink is a romantic place for a date this Valentine’s Day. You may even run into more celebrities. I suggest people book in advance, as tickets are selling fast,” concludes Jokat.
