Boris Johnson's second affair as Mayor to be investigated

Arcuri was at the centre of a political row earlier this year when it was alleged she had a four-year affair with Johnson - whose business support over the course of a decade led to her receiving public funds.

Ms Arcuri refused to say on the programme if they had an affair and would not comment on the nature of their relationship but did say friends had pressured her to "admit the affair".

The Sunday Times reported in September that when Johnson was mayor he failed to declare close personal links to Arcuri, who received thousands of pounds in public business funding and places on official trade trips.

Johnson is accused of failing to declare the pair's relationship.

Kelly said: "You didn't answer any of the questions that were put to you and I just don't see the point of you coming on, to be honest". And I don't understand why you've blocked me and ignored me as if I was some fleeting one-night stand or some girl that you picked up at a bar because I wasn't - and you know that.

She made her claim to Good Morning Britain while complaining that the prime minister was not speaking to her.

Lorraine responded: 'You did not reply any of the questions that have been put to you, and I simply do not see the objective of you approaching to be trustworthy'. What is it that you're looking for that I should say?'

Johnson, 55, was married at the time of the alleged affair but has since left his wife following a romance with a former Conservative party spin doctor Carrie Symonds.

Marchand silenced the crowd just 1:14 later, slicing between two Maple Leafs in the slot and again following up his initial shot. Defenseman Travis Dermott left the front of the net to challenge Matt Grzelcyk, who promptly fed Coyle from behind the net.

The reports were followed by allegations that Johnson had engaged in misconduct by showing preferential treatment to Arcuri, including her in private trade talks and facilitating grants of up to £100,000 from state bodies.

"While a third added: "@lorraine I couldn't have said it better myself.

She also claimed the Prime Minister hung up on her last weekend when she called him.

She stated: 'I am not going to reply that query, however as you'll be able to inform, there was a really particular relationship there.

"When I expressed the interest to want to speak to him, I was told there are bigger things at stake and I was brushed off ..."

"Now if you're asking if he had declared me, would I have preferred that to avoid all of this humiliation?"

"Previous vexatious and unfounded allegations against the Prime Minister have been thrown out by the courts".
