Under-fire Health Secretary Matt Hancock is odds-on at 4/6 with Star Sports to leave his post after reports suggest the Tory minister had an affair with a government aide.
Star Sports expect Hancock, who has come under scrutiny from many quarters for his handling of the Coronavirus crisis, to be out of a job by the end of July.
The 42-year-old is 11/10 to remain in his post beyond July, although this could be the final straw for Prime Minister Boris Johnson, after former aide Dominic Cummings revealed text messages from the Tory leader reportedly labelling Hancock ‘useless’ in recent weeks.
Luke Tarr, Head of PR at Star Sports, said: “Things just seem to go from bad to worse for Matt Hancock, and the story emerging this morning of his reported extra-marital affair could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back and sees him removed from his position.
“We make him 4/6 to leave his post as Health Secretary by 30th July, while he’s 11/10 to keep his job in Boris Johnson’s cabinet.”
