Matt Hancock has resigned as health secretary after he breached social distancing guidance by kissing a colleague.
The health secretary had already faced questions about his relationship with Gina Coladangelo, a university friend who was brought in to be a non-executive director at the Department of Health and Social Care.
Hancock had already faced intense pressure in recent weeks, with Boris Johnson’s former aide Dominic Cummings claiming he had urged the prime minister to sack the health secretary up to 20 times, for allegedly lying to colleagues about care homes, testing and other aspects of the pandemic response.
