The Health Secretary’s job hangs in the balance after he was caught on video in a passionate embrace with Mrs Coladangelo outside his office in Whitehall.
The steamy kiss was thought to have taken place on May 6 – 11 days before Covid guidance on social contact with members of other households was lifted.
But despite this, Prime Minister Boris Johnson says he ‘considers the matter closed’.
Mrs Coladangelo, who is married to Oliver Tress, founder of retailer Oliver Bonas, is a friend of Mr Hancock from their days together at Oxford University.
She was taken on as an unpaid adviser at his Department of Health and Social Care on a six-month term in March 2020, before landing a role as a non-executive director.
Mr Coladangelo is PHL Group’s executive director of strategy and innovation, having joined in October 2019, according to his LinkedIn profile.
There is no suggestion of any wrongdoing in regard to the awarding of any contracts to PHL.
On Saturday a spokesperson said its contracts had always been awarded in the correct way.
They said: ‘PHL has been operating for over 11 years and at all times has secured contracts through the robust tender and procurement processes put in place by local Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs).
‘At no time have any contracts been awarded outside of these rigorous processes and no contracts have ever been awarded by the Department of Health and Social Care.’
