Matt Hancock’s lover bins bag of empty booze bottles outside their lovenest before the pair share a peck in the street after recent European getaways
The ex-ministers former aide, Ms Coladangelo, 44, were spotted outside Mr Hancock’s flat in West Hampstead, North London taking out a bin bag containing empty alcohol bottles before the pair went their separate ways on November 14.
It has been reported that Ms Coladangelo has been staying at the former Health Secretary’s home ‘overnight’ and a few days later she was spotted locking lips with Mr Hancock outside his home.

The pair, who first met while they were both studying at Oxford, were seen sharing the embrace in front of their home following their recent European getaways, according to The Mirror.
Neighbour’s of the couple referenced Ms Coladangelo taking out the bins by comparing it to Theresa May’s appearance on BBC’s The One Show, where the former Prime Minister said that there are specific ‘boy jobs and girl jobs’ around the house.
One neighbour told The Mirror: ‘Wasn’t it Theresa May who said that taking the bins out was a boy’s job? Looks like Matt’s turned that on its head.
‘It looks like they’ve settled in pretty quickly, and they’re obviously really cosy with each other.’
This sighting comes just months after Mr Hancock was forced to quit the Cabinet when CCTV from his Whitehall office was leaked of him kissing his married aide in breach of Covid social-distancing guidance.
CCTV Images of Ms Coladangelo and Mr Hancock locked in a lover’s clinch in his office were widely published in June, leading to his resignation from Government.
She reportedly fled the £4.5 family home she shares with Mr Tress after the affair was exposed, and is understood to now be in an ongoing relationship with Mr Hancock, who in turn walked out on his wife and young children.
The Hancocks, who married in 2006, had lived with their daughter, 14, and two sons, 13 and eight, in London and West Suffolk, until earlier this year when Mr Hancock’s affair was exposed.
Mr Hancock’s kiss with Miss Coladangelo, a mother-of-three whose husband Oliver Tress is the founder of clothing shop Oliver Bonas, is alleged to have taken place on May 6 this year.
After the footage emerged, Mr Hancock confirmed his resignation and said he wanted to ‘reiterate his apology for breaking the guidance’.
This sighting comes as the pair recently enjoyed a romantic getaway to Croatia last month and were snapped at Lvxor – a café and restaurant in the Croatian city of Split offering a mix of local cuisine and international fine dining.

Mr Hancock is in talks with HarperCollins over a blow-by-blow account of ‘heated’ lockdown rows with ministers, aides, scientists and medics.
The book, which could earn him an advance of £100,000, will allow him to dispute claims that he was to blame for key blunders in the pandemic as well as push his case for a Cabinet comeback.
It is understood he will hit back at former No 10 aide Dominic Cummings who has accused him of incompetence and lying.
According to insiders, he will fuel their vicious war of words with the explosive claim that Mr Cummings’ ‘destructive antics’ delayed the vaccine breakthrough.

They suggest he will also take aim at EU Commission president Ursula von der Leyen over Covid jab rows.
Mr Hancock last night told the Mail: ‘I have been approached to write a book, but no decisions have been made.’
He is said to want it published just before the official Covid inquiry starts in the spring.
He intends to portray himself in a ‘heroic light’ and ‘get his version of events out there’ before he faces the inquiry.
A well-placed source said: ‘Matt paints a picture of a man burning the midnight oil night after night, staying cool under fire, saving the NHS and rising above petty Downing Street squabbles.
‘If you believe the book, the vaccine is all down to him for backing it against all odds, treating anti-vaxxers with contempt and winning over a sceptical public.’
He is said to be planning to ‘go out of his way to be flattering’ about Boris Johnson, seen by some as a further sign that he is determined to win back his seat round the Cabinet table – and the £140,000 salary that comes with it.
Mr Hancock is keen to resist pressure to use the book to describe the affair with aide Gina Coladangelo that led to his resignation in June – or the leaked photo of their kiss that ended his marriage.
