UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock resigned from his position after he broke government coronavirus restrictions during an affair with a close aide.



The Sun had published images of the married Cabinet minister locking lips with senior aide Gina Coladangelo, a married mother-of-three in an office in the government’s Department of Health. The outlet said the images were from a leaked CCTV footage from May 6 before the country’s strict regulations were loosened to allow hugs with family members



The Health Secretary quit on Saturday amid mounting pressure from Tory colleagues over the images of him kissing and cuddling married mother of three, Gina Coladangelo.



"The last thing I would want is for my private life to distract attention from the single-minded focus that is leading us out of this crisis," Hancock said in his letter of resignation to Prime Minister Boris Johnson.



"I want to reiterate my apology for breaking the guidance, and apologize to my family and loved ones for putting them through this," he said. "I also need [to] be with my children at this time."
