Jennifer Arcuri admits four year affair with Boris Johnson


usinesswoman Jennifer Arcuri has told for the first time how she fell in love with Boris Johnson during an affair she claims lasted four years.

The pair met when she lived in London and slept together at the Shoreditch flat where she had installed a pole dancer’s pole.

She told the Sunday Mirror they met up once a week at the height of the affair and said “I loved him, I adored him.”

Ms Arcuri, 35, said they had a mutual “physical and intellectual attraction”.

They shared a love of Shakespeare and she codenamed him Alexander the Great, a nod to his real first name Alexander.

She told the paper Mr Johnson loved her body and mind and “couldn’t keep his hands off me” on their first liaison.

Ms Arcuri said that the romance spanned from 2012 to 2016 during Mr Johnson’s second term as London Mayor when he was still married to ex wife Marina.

It was later revealed that Ms Arcuri was invited on taxpayer-funded foreign trade trips led by the then-mayor, sparking a political storm.

He spoke at a series of technology events organised by Ms Arcuri, who went on to receive £126,000 of taxpayer money in event sponsorships and grants. The bulk, £100,000, came in a government grant in 2019.

She maintains she was invited on trade trips in her own right as a member of the London tech-scene “ecosystem”.

An investigation into the trips cleared Mr Johnson, 56, of any wrongdoing when claims of the affair first emerged.
