Oliver Tress Wife Gina Coladangelo Affair With Matt Hancock
On 25 June 2021, it was alleged that Hancock was having an affair with Gina Coladangelo, an adviser in the Department of Health and Social Care, after CCTV images of him kissing her in his Whitehall office on 6 May were published in The Sun newspaper. The government’s social distancing guidelines only allowed intimate contact with people from a different household from 17 May.
The previous year Hancock had failed to declare he had appointed Coladangelo as an unpaid adviser at the department and later to a paid non-executive director role on its board. Coladangelo met Hancock at Oxford University, was a director at Luther Pendragon, and is said to be a millionaire. She is the head of marketing for the retail firm Oliver Bonas which was founded by her husband Oliver Tress.
Later on 25 June 2021, Hancock admitted that he “breached the social distancing guidelines in these circumstances” and apologised for “letting people down.” Boris Johnson later said that he accepted the apology, had “full confidence” in Hancock and considered the matter “closed”.
