Tharston man chooses Banham Zoo’s meerkat enclosure to pop the question
When Adam Lock was comparing the market for the perfect place to propose to his girlfriend, he found a zoo's meerkat enclosure to be 'seemply' the best.
The 42-year-old, from Tharston, chose to pop the question to his girlfriend Karina Large, 30, among the meerkats at Banham Zoo because the African mammal, famed for the Compare the Market TV commercials and the 'seemples' catchphrase, is her favourite animal.
Mr Lock said: 'She was quite speechless and quite emotional. She has got a massive love for meerkats and thinks they are cute.'
Miss Large said: 'I thought it was lovely and very unusual.'
Banham Zoo, near Attleborough, has also hosted wedding ceremonies and receptions, giving happy couples the chance to feed the giraffes and penguins and other animals.
