The former Health Secretary announced on JustGiving he would be running the 26-mile race next month in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care. To date, Mr Hancock has raised more than £3,000.

Hours after going live, his fundraising page went viral as dozens of people donated the minimum £2 in return to comment on his handling of the pandemic.

One person, posing as “Shirley Carter” wrote: “Well done Matthew! It’s been hard to be proud of you this past year or so, so this is great! Love Mum x”

Someone else, under the name “Dominic C”, mocked the former Health Secretary and said: “You couldn’t run a bath.”

Another person, who pretended to be Derek Trotter from Only Fools and Horses, wrote: “Hi Matt, as per your personal Hotmail message, here is my donation.

“Please send over the PPE contract as discussed.

“I’ve secured a great stock, almost as good as the spring water I bottled in Peckham.”

A message from the “PornHub Recruitment Team” added: “Hi Matt, just looking to get in touch re: a new contract.”

Others lashed out at his handling of the pandemic with one person saying: “Like all your mates paid by us, the actual taxpayer, you are unfit for the job.

“Completely bereft of intelligence or sense.

“Your entitlement and privilege is nauseating.”

While comments were visible on the morning of September 2, they have all disappeared now.

A spokesperson for Mr Hancock said the Just Giving page was genuine.

On the page, Mr Hancock wrote: “I’ve decided to run the 2021 London Marathon in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care.

“St Nicholas Hospice Care is a fantastic charity working in my constituency of West Suffolk, who look to give help, support and advice to those who are living with long-term and life-threatening illnesses.”

Later adding: “This is my first London Marathon and I’m really excited to take part and raise money for St Nicholas Hospice Care.

“I have already started my training and hope to keep you all updated with my progress.”

Mr Hancock was forced to resign from his position back in June following his affair with his aide Gina Coladangelo.

This week, the couple were spotted staying at a two-star lodge deep in the Swiss Alps.

It is Mr Hancock and Ms Coladangelo’s first romantic getaway since their relationship was exposed in June.

It is thought the CCTV showing Mr Hancock and Ms Coladangelo in a passionate clinch was taken on May 6, when he was ordering Britons to strictly observe isolation rules.

Ten days later he told Britain to be “careful” when hugging others and to only do it outside. She quit her job as non-executive director of the Department of Health in the resulting furore.

Mr Hancock stepped down on June 26 – the day after the clinch footage emerged – but remains a backbench MP.
