Matt Hancock and his new partner Gina Coladangelo have launched a media blitz, with the former health secretary taking part in a ‘heated’ interview with a Dragon’s Den star. 

Mr Hancock has been grilled by entrepreneur Steven Bartlett for an episode of his ‘The Diary of a CEO’ podcast.

Mr Bartlett, who appears on the Dragon’s Den TV show as an investor, said on Twitter that Mr Hancock and Ms Coladangelo had ‘stopped by’ for a tell-all chat. 

The host said the interview was ‘a little heated’ but Mr Hancock ‘did answer all of the tough questions I asked him and nothing will be edited out’.       

Mr Hancock was forced to quit the Cabinet last year after CCTV from his Whitehall office was leaked which showed him kissing his married aide in breach of Covid social-distancing guidance. The pair continued dating after their affair was exposed.

Mr Bartlett tweeted this morning to reveal he had interviewed Mr Hancock. 

He said: ‘Matt Hancock x The Diary Of A CEO! Matt Hancock stopped by with his new partner Gina to speak to me.

‘It’s time to find out what really happened, it’s time to ask the questions we’ve not had answers to; Party gate? Where did the CCTV footage come from? What mistakes did he make?’

He added: ‘This is the first time in the history of The Diary Of A CEO that things got a little heated between me and a guest at one point.

‘However, Matt did answer all of the tough questions I asked him and nothing will be edited out. You will see it all.’

Mr Bartlett also tweeted pictures of Mr Hancock and Ms Coladangelo at the interview, with the former health secretary wearing blue jeans and a navy turtle neck jumper.  

It is currently unclear when Mr Hancock’s appearance on the podcast will be released. 

It comes after Mr Hancock and Ms Coladangelo were pictured together last September as they headed out for dinner with friends during a romantic getaway to the Swiss Alps. 

The couple stayed at a £87-a-night hotel tucked away in the mountains in the village of Villars-sur-Ollon, near Montreux.

But the al fresco lengths riled local swimmers because early morning access to the lake is strictly for members only.
