After the scandal of the Minister of Health Matt Hancock .. he separated from his wife
The aftermath of the scandal of the former British Health Minister, Matt Hancock, continues, especially with the discovery of new details about the incident documented by the cameras and published by the press.
On Saturday, Hancock submitted his resignation as Minister of Health, after the newspaper "The Sun" published pictures showing him embracing and kissing his assistant, Gina Coladangelo, in a scandal that shook British public opinion, according to Sky News Arabia.
In addition to being a form of marital infidelity, it was a violation of the rules of social distancing, for which he is supposed to be responsible.
And the British newspaper "The Sun" reported, on Sunday, that shortly after the news of the scandal spread, Hancock rushed to the house, where he informed his wife that he would divorce her and separate from her.
In his resignation letter to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Hancock made no mention of his wife, Martha.
"I want to reiterate my apologies for the breach of the guidelines. I apologize to my family and loved ones for their embarrassment," he said in the letter.
"I also need to be with my kids at this time," he added.
He admitted that he "failed" the millions who made sacrifices during the pandemic, after documenting on cameras his acceptance of his aid, Gina Coladangelo.
The minister's wife had no idea that he was having an affair with his assistant, until news of the scandal broke.
Not only that, but the wife believed that their marriage was "happy and stable".
After news of the scandal spread, the husband rushed to his home, where he informed his wife of the decision to divorce, and woke up their youngest 8-year-old son to inform him of the decision to separate.
Those close to Hancock say he was in love with Coladangelo, a "love match", and they plan to stay in a house together, adding that his relationship with the assistant is "modern but serious".
However, wife Martha Hancock was seen walking after the scandal, still wearing her wedding ring.
Martha, a mother of three, wore a pink dress and dark sunglasses as she painted a sad half smile on the onlookers.
