Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been accused of having a secret affair lasting four years while he was Mayor of London.
Jennifer Arcuri, a businesswoman, was dragged into speculation over her relationship with Boris two years ago after it was revealed she went on three taxpayer-funded trade missions.
The 35-year-old has spoken out for the first time saying she did have a sexual relationship with the PM – who was Mayor of London at the time of the alleged affair – claiming they were together from 2012 to 2016.
Boris, 56, was then married to now ex-wife Marina, who he has four children with.
Talking about sex, Jennifer told The Mirror : “We were in an intimate relationship for four years. I loved him, and with good cause. But the man I thought I knew doesn’t exist any more.”
Ms Arcuri said she had met up with Boris once a week while the affair was in full swing.
Speaking to The Mirror she said: “I loved him. I adored him.”
The businesswoman says they slept together at her flat in Shoreditch and said Boris “couldn’t keep his hands off me”.
But she said he became a “cowardly wet noodle” when the row erupted over her attendance on the foreign trade trips.
