This is the moment flirty Matt Hancock has his basketball cap playfully nicked by a group of laughing women on the London Tube in a rare public appearance two months after he was forced to quit the Government for breaking Covid rules with his mistress.

In video originally posted on TikTok, the former Health Secretary, 42, was filmed wearing a facemask in the cheeky encounter on a District Line train at around 9pm on Saturday, during which his hat was pinched twice by the group of women on a night out.

Mr Hancock, who was wearing red shorts and a navy polo shirt, stands up to cheer and applause after three of the women, not covering their faces, surround his seat and ask: ‘Are you really Matt Hancock?’ 

A woman in a blue dress then whips his hat off his head and dances around the carriage wearing it. The shamed MP then makes his way to the standing area of the carriage, where he then appears on camera with his hat returned to him.

The women huddle around Mr Hancock and as they approach their stop say: ‘We’re loving Matt. We don’t want to get off.’ But as they pull into their station the hat is stolen from his head and the same woman runs off the Tube with it in her hand.

Before the women left, the ex-Health Secretary could be heard saying: ‘You go and enjoy yourselves.’

An onlooker claimed he was ‘clearly loving the attention, but I think stealing the hat was a bit too much’. They told the Sun: ‘It was all good-natured fun but I think if that had been me and not a group of drunk women, then it would be a different story.

‘He [Matt] looked uncomfortable after it happened because, I guess, it left him exposed for the rest of the journey. 

‘People could see who he was more clearly. He shouted after them to give it back and he tried to keep it on his head when the woman grabbed it, but she was too fast for him.’

M Hancock was forced to quit the Cabinet in June when CCTV from his Whitehall office was leaked of him kissing his married aide Gina Coladangelo in breach of Covid social-distancing guidance.

For weeks, Mr Hancock has been riding out the waves of public anger by keeping a low profile as he tries to avoid political wipeout

In the wake of the scandal, he reportedly told his wife Martha that their marriage was over and announced he would be spending time away from the spotlight to focus on his three children.

Last week, the Tory backbencher was pictured enjoying a seaside holiday in Cornwall, where he was seen in the same resort as his wife and their three children. The holiday comes just two months after he was moving boxes, suitcases and clothes out of his marital home in London. 

He is reportedly already plotting his ministerial comeback.

Miss Coladangelo, 44, also has three children with her husband Oliver Tress, who founded Oliver Bonas, the homeware chain.
