MATT HANCOCK ADMITS ‘I’VE BREACHED SOCIAL DISTANCING’ BUT DOESN’T APOLOGISE TO WIFE AS HE BREAKS SILENCE OVER AFFAIR
MATT Hancock has today broken his silence to admit he “breached social distancing rules” – but failed to apologise to his wife of 15 years after his explosive affair was revealed by The Sun.
The Health Secretary, 42, refused to resign and instead said he “has let people down and is very sorry” as he faces calls to be sacked by Boris Johnson for his brazen steamy clinch in Whitehall.
CCTV images published this morning showed him passionately kissing his aide – with the dad-of-three shamelessly asking for “privacy on this personal matter” just hours later.
And he admitted he had “broken social distancing rules” after lecturing the country on coronavirus regulations throughout the pandemic.
In his very short statement, in which he failed to apologise to his wife or acknowledge his behaviour, he said: “I accept that I breached the social distancing guidance in these circumstances.
“I have let people down and am very sorry. I remain focused on working to get the country out of this pandemic, and would be grateful for privacy for my family on this personal matter.”
