Boris Johnson’s lover, Jennifer Arcuri, has revealed that they slept together on the couch in his family home while his wife was at work and were caught by her just minutes away.
The American tech entrepreneur, who took a selfie in the kitchen of the £ 3.35 million Grade-II mansion, left minutes before Marina Wheeler got home.
The explosive claim was made by Miss Arcuri, 36, when she opened the lid on her four-year affair with London’s then-mayor and future prime minister.
A spokesperson for No. 10 told MailOnline today that it had “nothing to add” to the claims.
Jennifer Arcuri has claimed that she and Boris Johnson (together in 2014) had a four-year affair in which she sent him ‘artsy’ topless photos – but insists they had an ‘intellectual appeal’

In an interview with the Daily mirror, the former model revealed that the pair would meet for weekly encounters and exchange sexual messages.
Mr. Johnson told her that a vulgar photo she sent him “was enough to make a bishop kick a hole in a stained glass window.”
The Prime Minister is under investigation by the Greater London Authority whether he violated the Mayor’s code of conduct by not disclosing his relationship with Miss Arcuri.
In 2019, it was revealed that she had been awarded £ 126,000 in public money and privileged access to three official overseas trade missions led by him.
Miss Arcuri claims she had sex with Mr. Johnson on the living room couch of his marital home in March 2016, which he shared with wife Marina Wheeler.
Messages between the pair reportedly show him texting her his Islington address, before telling her he wanted to ‘check that the coast will be clear’.
That night he cooked her cheesy pasta and they read Shakespeare’s Macbeth, which was “ kind of a foreplay routine we had, ” she said.
“After we made love … I felt conflicted about being there in his parents’ home and seeing him like that, but I couldn’t help but love the feeling of being desired.”
She left just ten minutes before Miss Wheeler, a QC and the mother of four of his children, returned home from work.
Miss Arcuri, who is twenty years younger than Mr. Johnson, had initially denied rumors about the affair when the scandal broke.
But in an interview with the Daily Mail in October, she first admitted that they had been intimate.
The latest interview is her most explicit account to date of Mr. Johnson’s effort to pursue her and the extent of their affair.
Miss Arcuri was a business student when she met him at an event in 2011. A few months later, she volunteered to help his campaign for re-election as mayor in 2012.
She said there was a ‘clear spark’ when he recognized her in his ‘Boris Bus’ campaign vehicle and they traded numbers.
Ms. Arcuri claims the couple first had sex in her flat on Shoreditch High Street, where she installed the pole dancer device just hours before he attended the opening of the 2012 Paralympic Games.
Weeks later, he texted her asking for a private drink.
She told how he showed up ‘late, sloppy and chaotic’ and walked in with his bicycle helmet still on.
She said: ‘He went to the bar and came back in a minute and said,’ Jennifer can I borrow £ 3.10? ‘
On their second date, a few weeks later, he was “ very outspoken ” and said to her, “ I can’t stop thinking, I want to date you, I really like you. ‘
She said he stroked her leg under the table and “begged to go home with her,” but was “frustrated” when she refused and “cycled away in a pinch.”
Outside the restaurant, despite posing for selfies with members of the audience, ‘he shouted,’ Kiss me! ‘And I said,’ Mr. Mayor, I don’t kiss politicians in the street ‘.
He said, ‘This is my town, I don’t care’. ‘
They first had sex in her flat in Shoreditch, East London – where she had installed a dance pole – on August 29, 2012, she said, just before the Paralympic ceremony.
Afterwards, Mr. Johnson, who had appeared in his mayor’s suit with Olympic insignia, “was very clearly distraught because he wanted to stay. I guess I couldn’t even find his sock – it was just the most bizarre experience. ‘
Despite sitting next to Miss Wheeler – the mother of four of his children – and senior royals at the televised event, which was also attended by Princess Anne, Prince William and Kate Middleton, he kept texting and calling her all evening.
She also claimed to have sent an ‘artsy’ photo of herself topless with the snapshots from professional shoots
They met regularly for the next four years, she said.
‘He would say,’ You’re the most beautiful woman, I can’t stop thinking about you … Of course I love your body, and your face and your breasts, but you’re a very smart woman ‘.’
She shared how she once sent Mr. Johnson an ‘artsy’ pin-up photo of herself topless by a fireplace.
His enthusiastic response was a quote from Raymond Chandler’s 1940 novel Farewell, My Lovely: ‘It was a blonde. A blonde to have a bishop kick a hole in a stained glass window. ‘
Miss Arcuri ended the affair in 2016. Mr. Johnson’s marriage to Miss Wheeler ended in 2018 when the then Secretary of State began an affair with his current fiancé Carrie Symonds, 33.
Last year, the Independent Office for Police Conduct said it had found no evidence that Mr. Johnson had committed a crime of misconduct in public office – but he could still face a GLA investigation.
Ms. Arcuri claims she herself was invited to trade trips as a member of the London tech scene.
But they condemned Mr. Johnson as a “cowardly wet noodle” for not standing with her during the fallout.
The prime minister has never confirmed or denied that the couple was involved in an affair before.
Ms. Arcuri’s ties to Mr. Johnson (together in 2013) came under public scrutiny last year due to allegations that she received ‘preferential treatment’ for her business ventures during his eight-year stint as mayor
