Gina Coladangelo, a colleague and longtime girlfriend of resigned British Health Secretary Matt Hancock, has separated from her husband after a cheating scandal in the workplace during the quarantine imposed because of the pandemic coronavirus. This was reported by the Daily Mail on June 28.
It is noted that the beloved of the head of the British Ministry of Health broke up with her husband – a millionaire and founder of Oliver Bonas Oliver Tress – after 12 years of marriage.
In addition, Coladangelo left her position as a non-executive director at the U.K. Department of Health and Social Care hours after Hancock himself resigned.
According to their friends, the former minister and Coladangelo are in love and want to “kick-start” their relationship. In addition, according to the publication, the couple are already living together.
After the resignation of the head of the Department of Health, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, noting the merits of the department, including in the fight against COVID-19, said he regretted the departure of Hancock from his post.
It was announced June 26 that Hancock had left his post after a high-profile workplace cheating scandal during quarantine because of a coronavirus pandemic. It was also announced that former Chancellor and Interior Minister Sajid Javid would take over his position.
The politician’s wife, Martha Hancock, was unaware of her spouse’s affair until the minister himself announced the dissolution of their 15-year marriage. The official announced it hours before the video of the kiss was released to the media. The former minister and Coladangelo each have three children.
It was pointed out that Hancock wrote his resignation petition after learning that there was a risk of a police investigation into his violation of the Coronavirus Act because people were advised to refrain from bodily contact during the quarantine because of the risk of COVID-19 infection.
