Barks gets her skates and tights on

Actress Samantha Barks joined a host of stars in pulling on a pair of thick woolly tights at the opening of the ice skating rink at Somerset House on Wednesday night.

Barks combined the dark tights with a pair of ankle-length black boots, a dark blue dress, a red handbag and a long black winter coat. However, the Les Misérables star decided that it was not cold enough yet for a woolly hat and scarf.

The 23-year-old was joined at Somerset House, by fellow actress Kaya Scodelario and model Lily Cole along with some other famous faces.

The 900 square-foot rink surrounded by the spectacular Somerset House is just one of half a dozen or so temporary ice skating rinks which are set to open in the capital over the course of this month, with other famous landmarks such as the Tower of London and the London Eye providing the backdrop to the rinks.

Somerset House ice rink will remain open until January 5.
