Matt Hancock, born October 2, 1978, is a British politician from Chesire.

Hancock entered politics in 2005 as chief of staff to then-shadow chancellor George Osborne.

Hancock then rose through the ranks of the Conservative Party to become Health Secretary in July 2018.

Before taking up the post of Health Secretary, however, Hancock received his first junior ministerial role as Secretary of State for Skills and Enterprises in October 2013.

In July of the following year he was then appointed Minister of State for Economy and Enterprise.

In the same month he also became Minister for Energy.

Hancock then moved to the role of Minister for the Cabinet Office Paymaster General in May 2015.

Hancock was then promoted to Foreign Secretary of the same department in January 2018 until July 2018.

After Hancock took over the position of Secretary of Health, Hancock’s ambitions didn’t stop there and on 25 July 2019 he announced that he was running to become leader of the Conservative Party.

However, this dream was short-lived and after finishing sixth in the first ballot, he dropped out of the race.

Boris Johnson became Prime Minister shortly thereafter and Hancock retained his position as Health Secretary.

On June 25, 2021, it was revealed that Hancock had broken coronavirus social distancing restrictions with Gina Coladangelo – an adviser at the Department of Health and Social Care.

In an exclusive edition, The Sun revealed Hancock was having an affair with Gina Coladangelo after CCTV images showed Hancock kissing and hugging her in his Whitehall office.

At the time of the affair, Hancock was married to married Martha Hoyer Millar, an osteopath, whom he married in 2006.
