Do Matt Hancock's wife Martha and Gina Coladangelo know each other?

Matt Hancock, his wife Martha and newly exposed mistress Gina Coldangelo all attended Oxford University more than 20 years ago.

Like Hancock, Gina studied ­philosophy, politics and economics (PPE) at Oxford’s Exeter College between 1995 and 1998.

Friends say the future Health Secretary, now 42, and glamorous young Gina were “inseparable” while working together on the university’s student radio station Oxygen FM.

Gina took on the role of news reporter while Hancock was on sport.

But while studying, another young student caught Hancock's eye – his future wife and osteopath Martha, now 44.

The pair married in 2006 — the same year Gina tied the knot with property lawyer Glynn Gibb. However the couple split within three years.

Years later, when Hancock appointed Gina as his unpaid adviser, she was described as his “closest friend” at Oxford.

It is not known how well Gina and Martha knew each other at Oxford, if at all, but the pair are said to have graduated around the same time.

They are also friends on Facebook, the Mail reports.

And Gina and her husband Oliver Tress – the founder of Oliver Bonas – celebrated Christmas at parties with the Hancock family, it is claimed.

Did Matt Hancock's wife Martha know about his husband's affair?

According to The Sunday Times, Martha had no idea her husband was having an affair until he broke the news and announced that their marriage was over.

Hancock reportedly raced home after being told about The Sun's revelations – which included pictures and video of him and Gina in a passionate embrace.

He then delivered the bombshell news to Martha, who believed that their marriage had until that moment been "happy and stable".

Family friends told the Daily Mail that the revelation had come as a shock to Martha, who is said to have had no suspicions over Gina. 

Hancock even woke up the couple's youngest child, aged eight, to break the news he was leaving.

Hancock's allies have said the politician and Gina are “love match” and are planning to set up home together.

In his resignation statement, the former Health Secretary pointedly left out reference to wife Martha as he said he wanted to spend more time with his children.

She was pictured wearing her wedding ring – seen for the first time after it revealed the Health Secretary dumped her after his affair.
