The pair were exposed for cheating on their partners with one another, when footage from inside his ministerial office was leaked in June.
The scandal led to Hancock stepping down from his ministerial role, citing he “needs to be with his children at this time.”
So, are they now a couple and what have their ex-partners commented on the new relationship? This is what we know so far.
Is Matt Hancock dating Gina Coladangelo?
The Tory MP is now in a relationship with Coladangelo, according to reports in The Express newspaper.
The couple were spotted enjoying the company of several others while staying at a £87-a-night mountain hideaway in the resort of Villars-sur-Ollon.
They arrived at the resort in Geneva on Tuesday, it has also been reported that they drove there in a bit to remain low-key.
Both Hancock and Coladangelo are said to have both left their marital homes following their affair being made public, at a time when Covid restrictions included not hugging and not entering any household other than your own.
While the leaked video was taken in May, the couple have been friends since their student days at Oxford University.
Have their partners made any comments on their relationship?
Since Hancock, 42, and Coladangelo, 44, were caught embracing and kissing on video, their partners have not commented publicly on their affairs.
Hancock’s wife Martha was said to be shocked when she found out about his affair only hours before the explosive pictures were published in national newspapers.
Her friends reportedly told The Mirror that she thought her marriage was “happy and stable,” as well as dining with Coladangelo and her husband on a number of occasions. Martha, an osteopath, shares two sons and a daughter with her estranged husband.
Coladangelo’s husband, Oliver Bonas founder Oliver Tress, has also not commented.
She was seen leaving the £4.7million London mansion which she shared with her husband and three children, with her suitcase, just hours before the story broke in June.
