After rumors of having an affair with Gina Coladangelo his former aide, Matt Hancock is contemplating ways of publicizing the relationship.
In June, the former health minister had ruined his 15-year marriage to wife Martha as well as his political career. Mr. Hancock signed his resignation after he was seen on CCTV kissing Gina.
“The last thing I would want is for my private life to distract attention from the single-minded focus that is leading us out of this crisis, he had said at the time.
“I want to reiterate my apology for breaking the guidance and apologize to my family and loved ones for putting them through this. I also need to be with my children at this time. We owe it to people who have sacrificed so much in this pandemic to be honest when we have let them down as I have done by breaching the guidance.”
Rumors of the ex-minister`s secret romance had been circulating all over media prompting him to consider ways of officially presenting it to the public. In the meantime, Hancock and Gina are leaving separately but are believed to be still in a relationship.
“He is still very much together with Gina, but they are physically apart because of the intense media interest,” a source told Daily Mail.
In an effort to save his career, Hancock popped up on the Tory MP WhatsApp chats.
One MP said: “It was the first time he had popped up on the WhatsApp group since he resigned. He was thanking people for their support after he quit, and everyone was very nice to him, saying well done on the vaccine programme.”
