Jennifer Arcuri refuses to answer questions on Boris Johnson relationship

US entrepreneur Jennifer Arcuri has refused to answer questions over her private relationship with Boris Johnson during a TV interview.

Ms Arcuri said the prime minister visited her Shoreditch office and home “five, ten, a handful of times” when he was London mayor and described him as “a really good friend”.

The technology entrepreneur and former model told ITV’s Good Morning Britain: “It’s really not anyone’s business what private life we had.”

The businesswoman also denied ever directly asking Mr Johnson for sponsorship money.

She said: “Do you think I would waste his time talking about this stuff?”

Ms Arcuri said she used £10,000 given to her firm from London and Partners, the promotional agency run by the Mayor of London, to “produce (an) event” she hosted in 2013.

She said: “I produce good, really sexy, on-point events.”

The businesswoman also confirmed the prime minister “asked me to show him a few things” on the pole in her London home.

She described the kit as a “conversation starter”, adding that she and Mr Johnson “always had a laugh about it”.

Ms Arcuri said: “The pole stood in the living room, yes, he saw the pole.”

When asked directly whether Mr Johnson had ever used the pole, Ms Arcuri said: “I’m never going to tell you that.”

She then added Mr Johnson never used the pole and “just sat there with his tea”.
