Matt Hancock’s lover appears to have left a series of relationship-related posts on a social media account – including one about a kiss.
Uploads on a Pinterest account attributed to Gina Coladangelo, 43, have been discovered.
The former aide – who was caught in clinch with the shamed Health Secretary, 42, in his office – appears to have begun posting around two years ago.
Many of the uploaded images have quotes on them – some of which relate to love and passion.
Matt Hancock “directly” handed uni pal Ms Coladangelo a £15,000-a-year taxpayer-funded post at the Department of Health last year, No10 have confirmed.
Friends of Mr Hancock have insisted the affair only began later, in May this year.

One post on her Pinterest profile says: “The longer the wait the sweeter the kiss.”
Another reads: “I would rather die of passion than boredom.”
The account – owned by @gcoladangelo – has a total of 91 quotes, with others relating to family, work and happiness.
People tend to use Pinterest to create online ‘mood boards’, which are then shared between the online community.
Ms Coladangelo and Mr Hancock’s relationship was revealed on Thursday after images of a kiss were published.
It is reported that the MP then rushed home to tell Martha, his wife of 15 years, that their marriage was over.
Ms Colagandelo is also said to have told husband Oliver Tress, the founder of Oliver Bonas, that she wants to be with Mr Hancock.
She was seen packing up her things and leaving their home in Wandsworth, south London as the news of her affair broke.
Both couples each have three children.
Ms Coladangelo and Mr Hancock are said to have first met on a student radio station at the University of Oxford.
She was then later drafted in to work at the Department of Health – sparking accusations of cronyism.
Mr Hancock has since resigned as Health Secretary and Ms Coladangelo has left her advisory role.
And a friend of the pair told the Mail on Sunday that the budding romance is the real deal.
They said: “They are in love… It is serious.”
Another pal echoed the message, telling the Sunday Times: “It is a love match. They’re setting up home.”
Mr Hancock issued a short statement after the tryst was made public – but pointedly did not apologise to his wife.
Mrs Hancock, 44, has been see outside her London home still wearing her wedding ring in recent days.
Ms Coladangelo and her husband Mr Tress, 54, are yet to comment on the revelations – although he is said to be “devastated”.
Mr Hancock has been succeeded as Health Secretary by Sajid Javid, 51.
He announced that the camera which caught his predecessor’s kiss has since been disabled.
