FORMER Health Secretary Matt Hancock and Gina Coladangelo have been friends since university, it has been reported.
On Friday The Sun revealed that Hancock cheated on his wife with Gina, 43, who he hired last year with taxpayers’ money, as Covid gripped Britain.
GINA Coladangelo is to step down from her £15,000 position on the board of the Department for Health and Social Care following Matt Hancock’s resignation.
Meanwhile, it was reported that Hancock told his wife he was leaving her on the night his affair was revealed.
According to The Sunday Times, she had no idea her husband was having an affair until he broke the news and announced that their marriage was over.
In his resignation statement released yesterday, Hancock wrote how he wanted to “reiterate my apology for breaking the guidance and apologise to my family and loved ones for putting them through this” but did not mention his wife.
