Pictures show Mr Hancock, 42, and millionaire lobbyist Gina Coladangelo, 43, embracing each other in a steamy clinch at his Whitehall office.
His untimely Instagram post still remains on his story this morning – as the world reacts to his affair.
The Health Secretary wrote: “I work alongside some brilliant women. If you’re a woman who wants to get involved in politics, swipe up.”
Twitter has exploded with hundreds of users reacting to his message, many poking fun at the dad-of-three, with one writing: “Swipe right.”
Others reacted with “it’s a no from me” messages along with a number of GIFs to tease Mr Hancock.
It comes as:
- Hancock's secret affair with aide Gina Coladangelo is exposed
- Hancock’s wife Martha leaves home still wearing her wedding ring
- Shapps tries to defend Hancock over affair calling it a ‘red herring’
- Gina Coladangelo is married millionaire mum & Oliver Bonas PR chief
- Matt Hancock’s job hangs by a thread after latest scandal
- Piers Morgan blasts ‘hypocritical’ Matt Hancock for steamy affair
- Who is Matt Hancock’s aide Gina Coladangelo?
His wife of 15 years, Martha, was spotted leaving their London home this morning, still wearing her wedding ring.
The bombshell is likely to send shockwaves through government as Boris Johnson’s right-hand man fights for his political career following the dramatic revelation.
It will inevitably raise questions about his focus on the UK’s virus battle after he was accused of “lies” over his handling of the pandemic.
He stands accused of failing care home patients with botched testing, wasting billions on a bungled Test and Trace rollout and squandering millions on PPE contracts which failed to deliver.
Mr Hancock was seen kissing Ms Coladangelo 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.
He is seen in his distinctive ninth-floor office inside the sprawling Department of Health building, which is a stone’s throw from the Houses of Parliament.
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.
The source said: “They have tried to keep it a secret but everyone knows what goes on inside a building like that.
“I’m just amazed he was so brazen about it as he was the Secretary of State.
"It has also shocked people because he put her in such an important, publicly-funded role and this is what they get up to in office hours when everyone else is working hard.”
