Nadia Sawalha has furiously lashed out at Matt Hancock, branding him a “f***er” as she said that her “heart breaks” for families of Covid victims.
It comes after pictures – and then a video – of the Health Secretary passionately kissing his aide Gina Coladangelo, 43, in Whitehall.
Grieving families have suggested that allowing Mr Hancock to stay in his position was a “slap in the face” for people who could not hug loved ones at funerals last month due to Covid guidance.
Letting rip on her Insta Stories, she revealed she was in her car as she didn’t want her children – 13-year-old Kiki and 18-year-old Maddy – to “realise how angry” she was.
The Loose Women star, 56, raged: “I am sure we will still be expected to stick to all the rules and make our teenagers stick to all the rules, and our kids stick to all the rules, while these f***ers continually break them.
“I don’t give a damn if anyone out of the government breaks a rule, it’s none of my business, I don’t care.
“But when the guy who stood on that podium week after week – with his family values face, and with his doing the right thing and pull together message – is groping someone who he has given a contract to in his ministerial office and the prime minister yet again comes out and says I accept his apology and the case is now closed.
“Boris 100% believes that he and his cabinet can do whatever the f*** they like as long as he comes out at the end of it and says ‘this is now closed.’”
Labour branded Prime Minister Boris Johnson “spineless” after rebuffing calls to sack Mr Hancock, with Mr Johnson’s spokesman refusing to say eight times whether he had broken the law.
Nadia continued her scathing attack on the government as she said that she had listened to stories from radio callers who had lost loved ones to coronavirus.
She fumed: “I’ve been listening to the radio all day today, my heart has broken for the people that have rung up.
“A chap was just on the radio just then, just talking about how his father had died from Covid and how they were only allowed five minutes at the funeral. He was broken today. You could hear the tears but he couldn’t actually cry, through the PTSD of losing his father and having to bury him in that way.”
