Sources have said the millionaire Oliver Bonas founder has been left ‘devastated’ by the affair and her departure from their 12-year marriage.
She was pictured leaving her £4.5million south west London home hours before pictures of their hallway tryst were exposed.
Husband Oliver however helped as she loaded packed bags into the back of her £70,000 Audi Q7. He did not leave with her.
Friends now say that Mr Hancock and Mrs Coladangelo are in love and want to ‘make a go’ of their new relationship.
A neighbour in Wandsworth, South West London, told The Sun: ‘Gina and Matt are giving it a proper go and Olly was left reeling.

‘They had lots of friends here so we are all trying to help look after Olly.’
Sources had said on Saturday night – when Mr Hancock resigned – that the pair had been seeing each other for around six weeks, but were a ‘love match’.
The leaked CCTV footage of their tryst sparked a furious backlash among Tory MPs behind closed doors, while an awkward silence remained among ministers.
Mr Hancock initially clung on to his Health Secretary job, helped by the Prime Minister’s backing, but later resigned under intense pressure from 80 MPs.
In a video announcing his resignation Mr Hancock said: ‘The last thing I would want is for my private life to distract attention from the single-minded focus that is leading us out of this crisis.
‘I want to reiterate my apology for breaking the guidance, and apologise to my family and loved ones for putting them through this. I also need (to) be with my children at this time.’
He will be replaced by former chancellor and home secretary Sajid Javid, it has been announced.
A statement from 10 Downing Street said: ‘The Queen has been pleased to approve the appointment of the Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP as Secretary of State for Health and Social Care.’
The Prime Minister said he was ‘sorry’ to receive Mr Hancock’s resignation as Health Secretary.
He said Mr Hancock ‘should leave office very proud of what you have achieved – not just in tackling the pandemic, but even before Covid-19 struck us’.
Boris Johnson added: ‘I am grateful for your support and believe that your contribution to public service is far from over.’
Sajid Javid, the former Chancellor, took over the role of Health Secretary, writing that he was ‘honoured to be serving my country from the Cabinet once again’.
