Matt Hancock has been pictured snogging a millionaire aide in his office as the Covid pandemic gripped the UK.

The married Health Secretary was captured locked in a steamy embrace with Gina Coladangelo in his Whitehall office.

Hancock hired the 43-year-old with taxpayer's cash last year as coronavirus swept the nation.

According to The Sun, a whistleblower has accused the Health Secretary of cheating on his wife of 15 years, Martha Hoyer Millar, as the UK continues to fight the Covid pandemic.

Matt Hancock is yet to comment on the claims.

A friend of the Health Secretary told The Mirror: “He has no comment on personal matters. No rules have been broken.”

A Whitehall source told The Sun Hancock's behaviour "in the middle of a pandemic with an adviser and friend he used public money to hire” is shocking.

The Daily Star has contacted the Department of Health and Social Care for comment on the explosive allegations.

The embattled Health Secretary was already under severe pressure after damning evidence from former Number 10 spin doctor Dominic Cummings revealed that Boris Johnson branded Mr Hancock "totally f***ing useless" during the early stages of Covid last year.

The Health Secretary was also accused of lying about PPE provisions, failing care homes and overseeing the extraordinarily costly and failing Test and Trace system.

Only this week, the Queen referred to him as "poor man" in a clip released from her first in-person audience with Mr Johnson in 15 months.

The Sun has shared images of Mr Hancock and his aide appearing to passionately kiss, which were said to have been taken just after 3pm on May 6.

The source was reported to have 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."

Rumours are said to have been circulating within the department, with colleagues openly discussing it via WhatsApp.

The explosive claims come just days after it emerged that Mr Johnson branded Mr Hancock "totally f***ing useless" during the early stages of the pandemic last year.

The PM's ex-aide Mr Cummings said the Health Secretary should have been sacked for lies and fatal failings over PPE, testing and care homes.

He also released text exchanges with the Prime Minister, in which he described Mr Hancock as "totally f***g useless", and mulled over replacing him with Michael Gove.

Mr Hancock was also accused of insulting bereaved families as he insisted there was never a national shortage of PPE and tried to shift the blame for the crisis onto others.
