Former Health Minister Matt Hancock and his lover Gina Coladangelo were spotted out for dinner enjoying their latest romantic getaway to Croatia.

The ex-minister, 42, and his former assistant, Miss Coladangelo, 44, were caught in Lvxor – a cafe and restaurant in the Croatian city of Split offering a mix of local dishes and international fine dining.

In the video, shot Saturday night, the couple appears to be enjoying glasses of wine, sitting at a table outside the front of the restaurant while being serenaded by a guitarist singing on the steps of the venue.

Named after the Egyptian city of Luxor, the restaurant describes itself as ‘the favorite meeting place of Split’s cultural and social elite and one of the most visited places for both domestic and foreign visitors to our city’.

It says the venue is “widely known for its quality coffee aroma, homemade delicacies, national cuisine, extensive wine list and a number of cultural events.”

From the outdoor seating, guests can enjoy views of the bell tower of St. Domnius, the patron saint of Split, and the eternal Peristyle Square.

The hall says that during the spring and summer evenings, the square becomes ‘a unique stage for romantic concerts and dance for all our guests’.

Split is a vibrant, modern city of 250,000 inhabitants and one of the busiest ports in the area. With the Dalmatian mountains behind and the islands of the Adriatic Sea to the front, the Croatian city is a mix of labyrinthine old town and beautiful vistas.

Last night, photos showed Hancock in dark trousers with a dark sweater over a white shirt, while Mrs. Coladangelo was dressed in a white vest over a dark dress.

Sources say the couple, who have been together since their affair came to light, finished at the restaurant shortly before 9pm and that Mr Hancock was wearing a dark baseball cap as they left the plaza.

The sighting comes just months after Mr Hancock was forced to leave cabinet when CCTV leaked from his Whitehall office in which he kissed his married assistant in violation of Covid’s social distancing guidelines.

He said: ‘The last thing I would want is for my private life to divert attention from the one-sided focus that is leading us out of this crisis.

“I want to apologize for violating the guidelines and apologize to my family and loved ones for going through this. I must (must) be with my children right now.’

And a letter to the public read: ‘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 divert attention from the one-sided focus that is leading us out of this crisis.”
