Jennifer Arcuri

usinesswoman Jennifer Arcuri has told for the first time how she fell in love with Boris Johnson during an affair she claims lasted four years.

The pair met when she lived in London and slept together at the Shoreditch flat where she had installed a pole dancer’s pole.

She told the Sunday Mirror they met up once a week at the height of the affair and said “I loved him, I adored him.”

Ms Arcuri, 35, said they had a mutual “physical and intellectual attraction”.

They shared a love of Shakespeare and she codenamed him Alexander the Great, a nod to his real first name Alexander.

She told the paper Mr Johnson loved her body and mind and “couldn’t keep his hands off me” on their first liaison.

Ms Arcuri said that the romance spanned from 2012 to 2016 during Mr Johnson’s second term as London Mayor when he was still married to ex wife Marina.

It was later revealed that Ms Arcuri was invited on taxpayer-funded foreign trade trips led by the then-mayor, sparking a political storm.

He spoke at a series of technology events organised by Ms Arcuri, who went on to receive £126,000 of taxpayer money in event sponsorships and grants.

The bulk, £100,000, came in a government grant in 2019.

She maintains she was invited on trade trips in her own right as a member of the London tech-scene “ecosystem”.

An investigation into the trips cleared Mr Johnson, 56, of any wrongdoing when claims of the affair first emerged.

Ms Arcuri said that she considered him a “cowardly wet noodle” for not standing by her when the row broke out.

She added: “We were in an intimate relationship for four years.

I loved him, and with good cause.

But the man I thought I knew doesn’t exist any more.”

Ms Arcuri claimed they first had sex in her Shoreditch flat hours before Mr Johnson sat between Marina and Princess Anne at the opening of the 2012 London Paralympics.

She revealed that he had to hunt for a stray sock before heading off to the event.

She also claimed he had to borrow £3.10 on their first date and later shrugged off concerns about kissing in public, saying: “This is my city, I don’t care.”

Ms Arcuri said Mr Johnson wined and dined her openly at a London restaurant, telling her: “I want to date you, you’re the only American I’ve ever fancied.”

He requested racy images of her and said one raunchy picture was “enough to make a bishop kick a hole in a stained-glass window”.

Ms Arcuri was a business student when she met Mr Johnson when he was speaking at an event in 2011.

She said: “He entered the room, his hair all dishevelled.

That’s when I saw the first real magic of Boris Johnson.

“He’d turn the whole room into a bunch of howling schoolgirls.

I made a beeline for the front of the line.

I said, ‘Hello, my name is Jennifer, if you didn’t know me, now you do’.”

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is dad to six children, including a lookalike son, a gorgeous baby with an impressive head of hair and a love child from one of his many affairs.

The Tory politician is now happily engaged to PR guru Carrie Symonds, but he's had a complicated love life including two divorces.

In 1987 he married his university girlfriend Allegra Mostyn-Owen but they divorced six years later, and Johnson wed Marina Wheeler with whom he had four children.

However Johnson's affair with a property developer saw him become a father again in 2009, and he welcomed a new baby son with Carrie during the Covid pandemic.

Today, Jennifer Arcuri has revealed all about her four-year affair with the Prime Minister – as he faces a probe over his conduct

The Johnson kids are very successful, attending top private schools and Cambridge with some very impressive jobs between them.

Here's what we know about Boris Johnson's children:

Johnson and Marina's oldest child was conceived ahead of their wedding in 1993.

Lara, 27, uses the double-barrelled surname Johnson-Wheeler, with the second being her mum's surname.

She went to the £33,000-a-year Bedales school before earning a place at St Andrews University where she studied Latin.

She now works as a journalist, writer, editor and broadcaster and lives in London.

She specialises in arts and fashion criticism and has been published in Vogue.

Her website states: "Johnson-Wheeler is open to and has experience in public speaking, chairing panel discussions and debates."

At 27, she is just five years younger than her dad's current girlfriend Carrie.

At the time of her parents' split, the Sun reported that Lara called her dad a "selfish b*stard".

She reportedly said: "Mum is finished with him.

She will never take him back now."

Milo, 26, is Boris and Marina's oldest son and is a keen sportsman.

He went to Westminster School, which costs about £27,000-a-year.

He studied at London's School of Oriental and African Studies and can speak Arabic, Russian and French.

After his parents' split Milo was photographed helping his mum clearing out their Highgate home.

The 24-year-old studied at Highgate School, which costs about £18,000-a-year.

Like her dad and older sister, Cassia is a writer.

Theo is Boris and Marina's youngest child, and he is now 22.

He went to Cambridge University – the rival of his dad's Oxford.

Not much is known about Theo, but he is understood to have attended a private school in London.

Stephanie was born through Johnson's affair with property developer Helen Macintyre.

She was born in 2009.

Helen tried to keep their child secret and even launched legal action against a newspaper to prevent them publishing a report.

However, judges ruled the public had a right to know about Boris's daughter.

It is understood that Stephanie has very little to do with her dad or her half siblings.

Johnson and Carrie Symonds welcomed their first child April 29.

A spokesman for Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds said: "The Prime Minister and Ms Symonds are thrilled to announce the birth of a healthy baby boy at a London hospital earlier this morning.

Both mother and baby are doing very well.

"The PM and Ms Symonds would like to thank the fantastic NHS maternity team."

The happy news came just weeks after the PM was admitted to intensive care with coronavirus.

Carrie also suffered from the virus, however her symptoms were not as severe.

The couple got engaged at the end of 2019 and the PR guru is due in the spring.

Following weeks of rumours, Carrie shared the happy news on her Instgram page.

She wrote: "We got engaged at the end of last year…

and we've got a baby hatching early summer."

Johnson's ex Marina, who is in the process of divorcing the serial-cheat Prime Minister and battled cancer last year, is said to be extremely upset by the news.

Boris Johnson faces an inquiry by the Greater London Authority – responsible for the mayor’s office – over claims his failure to declare his relationship with Arcuri may have been a breach of the Nolan Principles of Public Life, which are contained in the Mayor of London’s code of conduct.

Arcuri was granted access to events at three top level trade missions, despite her businesses not meeting the criteria for the trips.

The Independent Office for Police Conduct said there was no evidence he’d committed the criminal offence of misconduct in public office but he may have breached the Nolan Principles.

Len Duvall, the chair of the GLA oversight committee which is conducting the investigation said: "Our investigation will consider whether Boris Johnson conducted himself in a way that’s expected from anyone in that position.

"It’s important we get those answers, because Londoners deserve to have their politicians held accountable."

A source said: “Marina has had a tough year with her health scare and the divorce and is very worried about how the kids are handling it too.

She’s just in pieces over it all.”

Other friends said the 55-year-old was “crushed” by the news.

And sources say their four grown-up kids are “furious” at Mr Johnson over his relationship with Carrie – who at 31 is 24 years his junior.

They are said to have barely met her and believe she started seeing him while he was still living with their mum.
