TORY MPs have been asked to spy on randy colleagues to stop another Matt Hancock scandal.
They were told by Government whips to keep an eye out for brewing affairs in the corridors of power.
They want to avoid being caught on the back foot.
Party enforcers are said to have been given a rap on the knuckles for failing to be aware of Mr Hancock’s affair with his aide Gina Coladangelo.
The scandal rocked the Government and cost Mr Hancock his job.
He resigned as Health Secretary in June.
One source said: “They’ve told MPs and whips to be keeping a close eye on who is going into whose offices and so on.
"They don’t want to be caught out again.”
The affair made front page news as The Sun revealed the couple in a clinch in their office.
At the time, hugging was banned and Mr Hancock had warned people to stay away from other they do not live with.
Last week the father of three and 44-year-old Gina, were photographed together for the first time since the news of their relationship was revealed.
They were snapped enjoying a holiday with friends in a mountain resort in Switzerland before the return of MPs to Parliament this week.
Mr Hancock had been spotted in Cornwall with his estranged wife Martha earlier in the summer
He was said to be plotting a comeback after engaging with his fellow Tory MPs in a WhatsApp group last month.
Gove ex grateful he ‘is not ego Matt’
MICHAEL Gove’s wife Sarah Vine — who has recently split from the Cabinet Office minister — is “hugely grateful” that he has never acted like shamed Matt Hancock.
In a scathing Mail on Sunday column, journalist Sarah said Mr Hancock was all about “his own throbbing ego”.
On the former Health Secretary’s wife Martha, she said: “I hope she isn’t crushed by this.
“Trust me: no one’s looking at Matt and thinking, ‘Great guy, I wish I were married to him’.”
Hancock holidayed in Switzerland with married lover Gina Coladangelo last week.
A friend of Martha has said: “He has been horrible and has not at any point apologised.”
