New British culture secretary Matt Hancock has become the first MP to launch his own smartphone app.
The app features picture galleries and videos of the West Suffolk MP and updates on his activities.
It also allows users to sign up as friends and chat with other fans of the Matt Hancock app.
First-time users are greeted with a cheery video of Mr Hancock saying: “Hi I’m Matt Hancock and welcome to my app.”
