Two weeks after the resignation scandal which rocked Whitehall, former Health Secretary Matt Hancock has been spotted for the first time in his Suffolk constituency while his lover strolled at her London home, having removed her wedding ring.
Ironically enough, given that he resigned after breaking Covid rules, Mr Hancock was photographed at a vaccination centre at Newmarket Racecourse, where he is believed to have received his second jab on Wednesday.
Gina Coladangelo, 43, Mr Hancock's former closest aide, whom he was caught kissing and hugging in footage leaked from a CCTV camera in his office, is still believed to be living in her marital home with her three children and retail tycoon husband Oliver Tress.
But the recent removal of her wedding band suggests they are now estranged.

Mr Hancock, 42, left his osteopath wife Martha and three young children as soon as the affair broke on June 25. He was reported to have told her their marriage was over the evening the story was published and woke up his children to say goodbye.
This week he was photographed alone, looking at his phone in a stationary car, parked in Newmarket. He cancelled an engagement at the same venue on the morning his affair was revealed for the first time in The Sun.
Student Guilherme Cavaleiro, 20, who was attending for his first jab, said: 'I glanced at him and thought he looked familiar. I took a second look and realised it was Mr Hancock. We didn't exchange any words – he looked very thoughtful, just staring at his mobile phone.'
Mrs Coladangelo also cut a solitary figure as she walked her dog on Wandsworth Common, south London earlier this week, wearing sunglasses, a denim jacket, floral print skirt and Jesus sandals.
Like Mr Hancock, about 80 miles away in Suffolk, she was also carrying a mobile phone and appeared to have having a conversation while connected by Bluetooth earphones.
