Live: Matt Hancock accused of 'having affair with close aide' Gina Coladangelo

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 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.

– MATT HANCOCK 100/1 FOR LOVE ISLAND STINT, SAYS LADBROKES

Matt Hancock is 100/1 with Ladbrokes to be a last-minute addition to the Love Island villa this year.

With just days until the 2021 series kicks off in Majorca, the bookies have installed the lothario Health Secretary as a surprise islander at 100/1.

Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes said: “It appears Matt Hancock has been doing bits in Westminster, and if he’s soon to be axed from his role as Health Secretary his odds of spending the summer in Majorca could be slashed.”

– SHAPPS: ANYONE HIRED HAS TO GO THROUGH A ‘RIGOROUS PROCESS IN GOVERNMENT’

And speaking about how Ms Coladangelo was hired as an aide during the pandemic, Mr Shapps said: “In terms of rules, anyone who’s been appointed has to go through an incredibly rigorous process in Government.

“So whatever the rules are, the rules will have to be followed.

“There are no shortcuts as anyone who has anything to do with the appointments system in the civil service knows there are very strict rules in place.

“I would only ever appoint somebody who’s qualified for the role, as I understand that this individual was more than qualified for the role of being provided.”
