Matt Hancock affair news latest: Video shows kiss with Gina Coladangelo as Cabinet reshuffle plans are 'brought forward'

HEALTH Secretary Matt Hancock has been having a secret affair with a close friend and aide.

He cheated on his wife with Gina Coladangelo, 43, who he hired last year with taxpayers’ money, as Covid gripped Britain.

He was seen kissing her in video footage at the Department of Health’s London HQ during office hours last month as the mutant strain began spreading.

A Whitehall whistleblower told The Sun it was “shocking that Mr Hancock was having an affair in the middle of a pandemic with an adviser and friend he used public money to hire”.

Last night, a friend of the Health Secretary said: “He has no comment on personal matters. No rules have been broken.”

Mr Hancock was pictured embracing his aide. The image was from just after 3pm on May 6 — as the rest of Westminster was engrossed by the local elections.

    PLANS FOR A CABINET RESHUFFLE ARE BEING BROUGHT FORWARD AS HANCOCK TO BE GIVEN A 'DIGNIFIED' DEPARTURE FROM HIS JOB.

    We exclusively revealed the Health Secretary’s affair with aide Gina Coladangelo, including how they were caught on camera snogging on May 6.

    Conservative sources have claimed that the Health Secretary could be given a lower-profile role after a number of high profile scandals.

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been considering a reshuffle for months, and had decided recently to postpone it until the autumn.

    But it could be brought forward to early next month, allowing the Prime Minister to move Hancock as soon as possible.

    Speaking to the Daily Mail, a Tory MP said: "I think you will see the Prime Minister bring forward his reshuffle quite quickly now.

    “Hancock doesn't want to quit and the PM doesn't want to sack him, but it is quite clear that a dignified way has to be found to move him on."

    'I'M IN SHOCK': ITV'S LORRAINE KELLY WEIGHS IN ON MATT HANCOCK AFFAIR

    The daytime presenter was a guest on Friday night’s The Last Leg, where Hancock’s alleged affair was obviously one of the main topics of conversation.

    “If he was the last man in the world, I wouldn’t even go near him. If the future of the human race depended upon me having to go anywhere [near him, I wouldn’t].”

    “My toes will refuse to uncurl the whole day,” she added. “But he reminded me of something…” 

    Kelly was then gifted comedian Adam Hills with a facemark with the word “tw**”, in what she suggested was a Hancock-related gift.

    PRIME MINISTER BACKS MATT HANCOCK BUT AS QUESTIONS KEEP COMING, WILL HE SURVIVE?

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson has attempted to rule Matt Hancock’s affair “a closed matter” last night as questions mounted for the cheating Health Secretary.

    The unfaithful Cabinet minister is engulfed in allegations he broke the lockdown law and the ministerial code after The Sun revealed his office canoodling with an aide.

    And he has still been unable to explain how glamorous pal Gina Coladangelo — exposed as his lover by this newspaper — got a £15,000 advisory role last September.

    Tory colleagues blasted Hancock’s “phenomenal sense of self-entitlement” after his attempt to tough out the scandal by saying he was getting on with the day job of fighting the pandemic.

    And opposition parties branded the PM spineless for not giving him his marching orders.

    HOW MATT HANCOCK'S CLOSE FRIENDSHIP WITH GINA COLADANGELO BECOME PASSIONATE AFFAIR

    The ties that bind cheating minister Matt Hancock to his mistress date back more than 20 years.

    The Health Secretary, now 42, first met high-flying Gina Coladangelo when they were both undergraduates at Oxford University in the late 1990s.

    It was there that another young student also caught Hancock’s eye — his future wife, Martha.

    However it was his closeness to Gina that would set tongues wagging.

    Friends say the pair were “inseparable” while working together on the university’s student radio station Oxygen FM.

    Matt Hancock's wife is still wearing her wedding ring as she put on a smile outside her home following her husband's bombshell affair.

    Martha Hancock, who has been married to the Health Secretary for 15 years, was seen out walking this morning – after yesterday's explosive news.

    And yesterday, Mr Hancock apologised for his actions, saying: "I accept that I breached the social distancing guidance in these circumstances.

    "I have let people down and am very sorry.

    "I remain focused on working to get the country out of this pandemic, and would be grateful for privacy for my family on this personal matter."

    ‘YOU CAN TALK’

    Matt Hancock skewered Professor Lockdown Neil Ferguson for his affair during Covid – just a year before his own.

    The Health Secretary stressed the importance of social distancing and criticised the professor’s “extraordinary” behaviour during the first lockdown – but Hancock has now broken the rules himself.

    In the clip from May 2020, the Health Secretary condemns the actions of  Neil Ferguson – who broke Covid rules to meet his married mistress Antonia Staats.

    Mr Hancock said he was left “speechless” by Prof Ferguson’s “extraordinary” behaviour, and said it had been right for him to resign as a government Sage adviser.

    Matt Hancock said on Sky News at the time: “The social distancing rules are there for everyone, they’re incredibly important and they’re deadly serious. 

    “And the reason is they are the means by which we’ve managed to get control of this virus.”

    MATT HANCOCK’S WIFE MARTHA STILL WEARING WEDDING RING YESTERDAY AS SHE WAS SPOTTED FOR SECOND TIME

    Martha Hancock, who has been married to the Health Secretary for 15 years, was seen walking with her dog yesterday morning – hours after the bombshell news.

    Now she has been seen leaving the family's London home once again and still sporting dark sunglasses and her wedding ring.

    Mrs Hancock put on a brave face as she clutched her mobile phone and a set of car keys before driving off.

    She gave a half-smile as she stepped out in dark sunglasses this morning after The Sun exposed her husband's affair last night.

    Mr Hancock cheated on his wife with Gina Coladangelo, 43, who he hired last year with taxpayers’ money, as Covid gripped Britain.

    MATT HANCOCK ADMITS ‘I’VE BREACHED SOCIAL DISTANCING’ BUT DOESN’T APOLOGISE TO WIFE AS HE BREAKS SILENCE OVER AFFAIR

    Matt Hancock has today broken his silence to admit he “breached social distancing rules” – but failed to apologise to his wife of 15 years after his explosive affair was revealed by The Sun.

    The Health Secretary, 42, refused to resign and instead said he “has let people down and is very sorry” as he faces calls to be sacked by Boris Johnson for his brazen steamy clinch in Whitehall.

    CCTV images published this morning showed him passionately kissing his aide – with the dad-of-three shamelessly asking for “privacy on this personal matter” just hours later.

    And he admitted he had “broken social distancing rules” after lecturing the country on coronavirus regulations throughout the pandemic.

    In his very short statement, in which he failed to apologise to his wife or acknowledge his behaviour, he said: “I accept that I breached the social distancing guidance in these circumstances.

    “I have let people down and am very sorry. I remain focused on working to get the country out of this pandemic, and would be grateful for privacy for my family on this personal matter.”

    MATT HANCOCK FACES CALLS TO BE SACKED OVER SHOCKING AFFAIR SCANDAL AS HE SCRAPS PUBLIC VISIT

    Health Secretary Matt Hancock has scrapped a public appearance today as he bunkered down following The Sun's bombshell revelations of a shameful affair with his close adviser.

    Hancock is fighting for his job after facing calls to be sacked over the shameful affair scandal.

    He was supposed to attend a vaccination centre at Newmarket in his Suffolk constituency today but trip would have been undoubtedly overshadowed by mounting questions of him snogging top adviser Gina Coladangelo.

    And this afternoon, Mr Hancock apologised for his actions, saying: "I accept that I breached the social distancing guidance in these circumstances.

    "I have let people down and am very sorry.

    "I remain focused on working to get the country out of this pandemic, and would be grateful for privacy for my family on this personal matter."

    SLAP IN THE FACE

    Grieving families who have lost loved ones to coronavirus have written to the Prime Minister after he refused to sack Matt Hancock in the wake of his secret affair being exposed.

    Bereaved Brits have slammed Boris Johnson's decision to keep the Health Secretary as a "slap in the face" to the thousands of families of Covid victims.

    Despite preaching the importance of social distancing and lockdown rules during the pandemic, the father-of-three cheated on his wife with his closest aide Gina Coladangelo, 43, who he hired last year with taxpayers’ money.

    But Hannah Brady, who lost her father Shaun, 55, to the virus, has hit out at Mr Hancock and said he "has treated bereaved families with contempt".

    She believes the 42-year-old should have already been struck off for his failures and is infuriated that the PM "considers the matter closed".

    WIFE OF 15 YEARS

    During the pandemic, the office has provided the backdrop to his Zoom appearances on TV — including the Andrew Marr Show.

    Mr Hancock is seen checking the corridor is clear before closing the door and then leaning on it to ensure he cannot be disturbed.

    Ms Coladangelo then walks towards him and the pair begin their passionate embrace.

    According to a whistleblower, who used to work at the department, the pair have regularly been caught in clinches together.

    MATT HANCOCK’S MISTRESS GINA COLADANGELO REVEALS HE FIBBED ON STUDENT RADIO LAST YEAR

    Coladangelo went on to reveal how Hancock had told a “white lie” about watching a rugby match at Twickenham when in reality he was watching the game in a pub.

    She said: “He got one of these special tickets to go and sit in the press box with all the other serious journalists at Twickenham to watch a big match.

    “I think it was Australia vs England.

    “He actually overslept and hot-footed it to the train but didn’t make it back to Twickenham from Oxford in time so Matt had to get off the train at Reading, find a pub, watch the first half and then go to phone box outside and report in.

    “So he told a white lie, pretended he was at Twickenham watching the rugby when in fact he was in a pub in Reading.

    “Successfully, no one ever found out.”

    Gina’s dad, Rino Coladangelo, 70, is a millionaire businessman who is the boss of the international pharmaceutical company Rephine.

    SERIOUS QUESTIONS REMAIN OVER COLADANGELO APPOINTMENT

    Serious questions also remain about whether married Mr Hancock should have hired his millionaire lobbyist Ms Coladangelo for the £15,000-a-year job.

    But as of this morning Boris Johnson was sticking with his Health Secretary, with the Government line insisting it was a “private matter”.

    Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said he “absolutely” had confidence in his Cabinet colleague.

    He told Times Radio: “We don’t live in a world where the responsibilities of public work and what somebody has done in their private life are one and the same thing.

    “We’re living in the 21st century and how people live their private lives is a private business.”
