Matt Hancock’s aide and ‘lover’ Gina Coladangelo is wife of founder of Oliver Bonas

The woman Matt Hancock has been allegedly having an affair with is married to the millionaire founder of fashion firm Oliver Bonas and works as its communications director. 

Gina Coladangelo, 43, knows the Health Secretary from Oxford University, where they both worked on the student radio station, and where he also met his wife Martha Millar. 

Ms Coladangelo remains Facebook friends with Hancock’s osteopath wife after they both graduated from the university  at around the same time. 

And the pair both reside in London, with Coladangelo living with her multi-millionaire fashion tycoon husband and their three children in Wandsworth while the Hancocks live in Queens Park with their two daughters and son.    

Hancock hired Coladangelo as a non-executive director at the Department of Health last year, and the CCTV images of them kissing are taken on May 6.

The mother of three, 43, is a major shareholder – as well as director – of the lobbying firm Luther Pendragon. 

She studied politics, philosophy and economics (PPE) at Oxford between 1995 and 1998, the same as Mr Hancock.  

Mrs Coladangelo has been spotted leaving Downing Street with the Health Secretary on a number of occasions.  A source told the Sunday Times last year: ‘Before Matt does anything big, he’ll speak to Gina. She knows everything.’

But her new role was not made public despite her getting access to £15,000 from the taxpayer.

Away from work, Mrs Coladangelo has three children. In 2012 she told the Daily Mail how she had returned to work while being a mother.

She paid for a live-in nanny at their home in south-west London and worked flexible hours.

Mrs Coladangelo said: ‘I don’t worry about my children being closer to their nanny, because I spend as much time as I can with them.

‘I would never dream of telling other mothers what to do with their lives. Every woman has to make her own choice.

‘But I feel very fortunate in my education and believe those years shouldn’t be wasted. I want to work to give something back.’

Her husband Oliver gave an interview to the Financial Times in November 2015 and spoke about their house. He said: ‘Our indulgence was moving to a bigger home in Wandsworth in September (2015). 

‘We barely had a garden in Clapham, but the new house has a bigger garden and more space downstairs.

‘We might be able to build an extension. The mortgage will still be pretty considerable, as retail businesses are not necessarily throwing up a lot of cash. I am not a tycoon.’ 

Mr Bonas opened his first store on London’s Fulham Road in 1993 with handbags and jewellery he had brought from Hong Kong where his parents lived. 

Speaking to the Independent in September 2015, he said: ‘I’d been bringing presents back for friends and they were really popular so I thought, ‘I wonder if I can make a go of this?’ And to my amazement it just worked.’ 

Bonas was the surname of his then girlfriend Anna Bonas, who is the cousin of Prince Harry’s former girlfriend Cressida Bonas, and he told how ‘she very kindly hasn’t demanded that I changed it’.
