The beleaguered minister has tonight quit after shocking footage of his clinch with a senior aide at work was published by The Sun.

The Health Minister resigned from his high-profile government post in the wake of mounting pressure from colleagues within the Conservative party over the steamy kiss between him and Gina Coladangelo.

And tonight’s resignation revelation prompted a barrage of tweets…

Piers Morgan echoed comments on Twitter by blasting Mr Hancock for resigning over his affair – and not over failures that saw Britain’s Covid toll rise.

The former Good Morning Britain host, 56, berated the minister, writing: “Didn’t resign for his abject failures on PPE, testing & care homes that led to Britain having the worst Covid death toll in Europe.

“Did resign for being caught snogging his mistress. Pretty much sums up Matt Hancock. As the Prime Minister said: ‘Totally f***ing hopeless.’”

Boris Johnson has told Mr Hancock that he “should be proud of what he’s achieved” – despite slamming him as “useless’ in a text.

He added that he should “leave office very proud of what you have achieved not just in tackling the pandemic, but even before Covid-19 struck us”.

In his letter to the Prime Minister he wrote: “I am writing to resign as Secretary of State for Health and Social Care. We have worked so hard as a country to fight the pandemic.

“The last thing I would want is for my private life to distract attention from the single-minded focus that is leading us out of this crisis.

“I want to reiterate my apology for breaking the guidance, and apologise to my family and loved ones for putting them through this. I also need to be with my children at this time.”
