MATT Hancock will hit back against Dominic Cummings today as he faces MPs and a press conference in a bid to salvage his reputation.

The health secretary is set to launch a furious defence of his record in dealing with the pandemic and swat aside claims he's a serial liar.

He will appear in the House of Commons at 10.30am before taking questions from the No 10 podium at 5pm.

Leaving home this morning, the Health Secretary said: "I'm just off to drive forward the vaccine programme and then I'll being going to the House of Commons and I'll answer questions there."

Boris Johnson is also set to hit back at his former chief aide when he appears before TV cameras during a trip to a hospital this morning.

Yesterday the PM insisted: “I am absolutely confident that we took the decisions in the best interests of the British people.”

Mr Hancock said he hasn't seen the claims against him in full yet because he's been too busy "dealing with getting the vaccination rollout going, especially to over-30s, and saving lives".
