Businesswoman Jennifer Arcuri has spoken for the first time about her affair with Boris Johnson
Jennifer received more than £100,000 of taxpayers’ cash and was granted access to events, despite her businesses not meeting the criteria for the trips.
Now her comments have led to increased scrutiny over the PM’s time as Mayor.
She has spoken openly about the affair and admitted that she ‘loved and adored him’ during the relationship, which took place between 2012 and 2016.
She said the pair – who had sex for the first time just hours before the Paralympic Opening Ceremony where Johnson sat with the Royals – exchanged intimate content.

And that “desperate” Boris, named in her phone contacts as ‘Alex the Great‘ would ask for raunchy photos if he was missing her.
He once quoted Raymond Chandler after she sent him an intimate photo and flooded her with compliments.
The intimate photo, which was taken professionally, prompted Boris to describe it as “enough to make a bishop kick through a stained-glass window”.
Boris Johnson faces an inquiry by the Greater London Authority – responsible for the mayor’s office – over claims his failure to declare his relationship with Arcuri may have been a breach of the Nolan Principles of Public Life, which are contained in the Mayor of London’s code of conduct.
Arcuri was granted access to events at three top level trade missions, despite her businesses not meeting the criteria for the trips.
The Independent Office for Police Conduct said there was no evidence he’d committed the criminal offence of misconduct in public office but he may have breached the Nolan Principles.
Len Duvall, the chair of the GLA oversight committee which is conducting the investigation said: “Our investigation will consider whether Boris Johnson conducted himself in a way that’s expected from anyone in that position.
“It’s important we get those answers, because Londoners deserve to have their politicians held accountable.”
She explains: “That was one of my really very sexy photos. I had some topless ones I took by a fireplace. You don’t see me topless, but you see the silhouette of my breast.
“It’s a pin-up kind of look. I went to the polo and I won a photoshoot.
“That’s when I did other photos for him – vignette, black and white, totally tasteful, topless.
“One of the guys who did all my tech events asked to do a photoshoot with me. “
That’s where the photo with the pearls and the fur coat in the stairwell, that’s where that came from.
“When I did a shoot, he might say I’m desperate, or I miss you, and I’d respond with a photo.”
