Jennifer Arcuri has accused Boris Johnson of "casting her aside like a gremlin" in a dramatic new TV interview.
The American businesswoman told ITV's Exposure she had been left "heartbroken" after being ignored by Johnson "like some one-night stand".
Addressing the PM directly in the interview, which airs tonight, she warned him she had "kept his secrets" up until this point.
"I've kept your secrets, and I've been your friend," she said.

"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.
"I'm terribly heartbroken by the way that you have cast me aside like I am some gremlin…
"He should know me well enough to know who I am…Shame on him for not answering the phone."
While Arcuri refuses to share the exact nature of her and Johnson's relationship, she is clear they were "very close" for several years.

Johnson helped Jennifer’s business ventures, including inviting her on a trade mission to Tel Aviv.
Appearing to claim they had an affair, Jennifer said: “When the story broke half the people that reached out told me to categorically deny, deny, deny.
"The other half told me to admit the, er, affair, fall on the sword, get it over with.”

Jennifer claimed Johnson then refused to support her and would not take her phone calls.
She said: “I felt so disgusted and humiliated that I was told bigger things are at stake, never mind you, he’s too busy for you.”
In response to the programme, a Conservative spokesman said: “Any claims of impropriety in office are untrue and unfounded.”
