Hancock under pressure to resign over alleged affair

Matt Hancock has reportedly been having an affair with his aide Gina Coladangelo. The claims follow the publication of photographs appearing to show them kissing. The health secretary is married with three children and has yet to respond to the claims. But he has admitted breaking Covid restrictions. “I accept that I breached the social distancing guidelines in these circumstances. I have let people down and am very sorry”. The pair have known each other since their time at Oxford University, and have remained close friends ever since. There are now calls for him to resign. Earlier today Mr Hancock pulled out of a planned event at Newmarket Racecourse in Suffolk.
