Angela Rayner’s romance with fellow Labour MP Sam Tarry went public today after photos emerged of them leaving her London home together.

After he won her election to be Labour’s deputy leader, Ms Rayner (41), is thought to have grown close to him.

And it looked like Mr Tarry had made hurried plans to stay the night since he appeared to have a toothbrush in his coat pocket.

Ms Rayner separated from her husband Mark in 2020 and Mr Tarry, a father of two, is also understood to have now parted from his wife.

Their photo was taken by The Sun Sunday, as they left their taxpayer-funded homes earlier in the day. 

Tarry is an unusual left-leaning Labour MP who holds the post of shadow ministerial minister for public transport. 

After Mike Gapes (Labour MP for Ilford South), defected, he was supported by Momentum and entered the Parliamentary Hall.

Although the couple have kept their distance about their relationship, Ms Rayner may be forced to speak out if she decides to run to lead Labour.

Ms Rayner, 41, is believed to have become close to the 39-year-old Ilford South MP after he ran her campaign to become Labour's deputy leader

After he won her election to be Labour’s deputy leader, Ms Rayner (41), is thought to have become closer to Mr. Rayner.

The pair have been quiet about their relationship, they may have to open up about it in future if Ms Rayner decides to run for the Labour leadership

They have kept quiet about their relationship. Ms Rayner may be forced to talk about hers if she runs for Labour leadership.

The MP for Ashton-under-Lyne was elected to Parliament as the Labour MP for Ashton-under-Lyne in 2015 before swiftly rising up the ranks to national prominence.

Under the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn, Ms Rayner was welcomed into the Labour Frontbench and made shadow education secretary.

Before the couple split in 2020, she married Mark Rayner from Unison.

The pair share two children together and Mark is also a stepfather to Ms Rayner’s first child Ryan, who she had at the age of 16. 

In 2017, Ms Rayner told The Guardian that Mark had ‘brought stability to her life’  and had been willing to step back from his job to take on a ‘good deal of the childcare’ in order to support her career.  

The MP proudly welcomed her own granddaughter in 2017 at the age of just 37 with a tweet jokingly referring to herself as ‘Grangela’ after son Ryan became a father to baby Lilith Mae. 

She previously spoke out about her 16-year-old pregnancy that saved her.

Speaking at a Times Red Box fringe event in 2017, Ms Rayner said: ‘Even though getting pregnant at 16 and having no qualifications is not the best start for anybody, you’ve got to understand that where my life was, it actually saved me from where I potentially could have been.

Because I had a child to look after, I felt the need to show everyone that I wasn’t the total scumbag I thought I was. That I could be an honest mother and that someone would love me just as much as I merited.

“And that was what I thought pregnancy was for my, it saved and saved me.

While I don’t think it’s something we should encourage, my point was to say that the young women were just failings who have no hope of ever succeeding. However, when they refused to understand that there are complex causes and the benefits that can be achieved by changing lives for the better, they really got me frustrated.

“And it worked for me. My children are now in a better place than I was. And my mother could have only dreamed of having a daughter who got me to this point.

“That’s the definition of social mobility.”      

In 2016, Mr Tarry married Julia Fozard. Julia Fozard is a Brighton paediatrician.

The pair, who have now parted ways, tied the knot a year after they bought a three-bedroom end-of-terrace home in the seaside town for £548,000.

In an earlier statement, Mr Tarry expressed his delight at being appointed as shadow minister of buses and local transportation.

He tweeted: ‘I’ll be working hard to ensure our system is fit for purpose & that significant Govt investment is made to improve national connectivity, level up the North, & expand our greener transport network.

“A big thank you to @UKLabour Chair & Deputy Leader @AngelaRayner, as I step down from my team.

“It was an honor to serve, and I am proud of the work that I was able do leading national election organising campaigns and rebuilding our Party.

“Enormously thankful to Ed_Miliband that he asked me to be his PPS while I transition to a new role. 

“His support, guidance, and encouragement during my first year in Parliament was priceless. Now I’m looking forward to building a revolutionary economic revival with @UKLabour’s front bench. 

Last week Ms Rayner made clear her designs on Labour’s top job – before pledging her support to Sir Keir Starmer. 

Mancunian was a straight-talking lady who said it would have been a ‘great honor’ to be admitted into Downing Street for a mother of two from a council estate.

However, she said to CNBC in the USA that she would be acting as vice prime minister with Sir Kier at the top. 

She declined to rule out her running for his party leadership position one day and said: “Never say never”. 

“At the moment I cannot wait to get into number 10, With Keir, and be his deputy pm as a girl of my heritage, who was born on the council estate, very poor family to leave school at 16 with no qualification to be deputy prime minister, would be an absolute honor, she stated. 

Ms Rayner, who was elected to Parliament as the Labour MP for Ashton-under-Lyne in 2015, married Unison official Mark Rayner (pictured together) in 2010

The plain-talking Mancunian said it would be 'an absolute honour' to enter Downing Street as a former single mum from a council estate

Mancunian, a plain-speaking man from Mancunian’s council estate said that it would be an ‘absolute honour’ to go down the street as a single mother.

But she told US broadcaster CNBC she planned to do it as deputy prime minister, with Sir Kier in the top job.

However, she said to CNBC in the USA that she would be acting as vice prime minister with Sir Kier at the top.

“And I will never forget that trust the constituents placed in me during this moment. That’s why I keep pushing forward. They deserve more than they have right now. That’s why I will keep pushing to make it even better.

This isn’t the first time that Ms. Rayner spoke out about the possibility of taking over the leadership.

On the first day in Brighton of the party conference last September, she promoted herself as a potential leader, saying: “If Boris Johnson can talk his way through the PM role, then I’m certain that I’m capable of doing a lot more than that.”

Asking if Keir starmer was an electable candidate, she replied: “I believe Kier Starmer has demonstrated that he is the type of leader that you want looking after your schools, your hospitals, and he is a measured leader. It’s obvious that he really takes his job seriously.

“He is an honest public servant.

“His mother was an NHS worker and she needed the NHS for a very severe illness. His dad started working with a toolmaker. It’s a boy-do-good story in Britain, you know.

“Many people from the working classes in Britain don’t have degrees but want to see their kids succeed. 

And it is what happens to him. He wants the same for all. He wants everyone to follow the rules.
