Boris Johnson and 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’.”

Boris Johnson has been pictured for the first time since Jennifer Arcuri revealed details of their affair.

Jennifer has spoken exclusively with the Sunday Mirror, alleging she had a four-year relationship with Boris Johnson while he was Mayor of London.

The Prime Minister has since been photographed in the back of a car, with a mask on and what appears to be a serious expression.

He was said to be driven from Buckingham Palace after his morning exercise.

No.10 has yet to comment on Jennifer's claims.

Jennifer says her romance with Mr Johnson lasted from 2012 to 2016.

It was his second term of office as Mayor of London and he was married to now ex-wife Marina, mother of their four children.

Jennifer says they met up once a week at the height of the affair, she sent arty topless pictures and admits: “I loved him.

I adored him.”

Jennifer told of a mutual “physical and intellectual attraction”.

They shared a love of Shakespeare, she codenamed him Alexander the Great, and she says he loved her body and mind and “couldn’t keep his hands off me” on their first tryst.

But ultimately, she says, he was a “cowardly wet noodle” for not standing by her in the row over her presence on foreign trade trips.

Jennifer's revelations raise questions over public cash and whether Boris breached a code of conduct.

The Greater London Authority probe will examine whether he breached the Nolan Principles of Public Life.

It will examine whether he behaved with “honesty and integrity”, whether Jennifer was given “preferential treatment” and if there was any conflict of interest which should have been declared.

Boris spoke at a series of technology events organised by Jennifer, 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.

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