Mary Wakefield is commissioning editor at the Spectator magazine.[1] She is married to Dominic Cummings, the Special Adviser to Boris Johnson, and lives in a luxurious £1.6 million townhouse in the heart of Islington in north London.[2]

Not my thigh

In October 2019, Mary Wakefield denied she was the second woman allegedly groped by Boris Johnson at a 1999 lunch while he was editor of the Spectator.

Journalist Charlotte Edwardes has said that the prime minister squeezed her thigh and that of another unnamed woman without their permission at the magazine’s offices in London.

Asked if the allegations were true during a TV interview at the Conservative annual conference in Manchester, Mr Johnson responded simply: “No.”

And Mary Wakefield moved to quash rumours whirling around the Manchester gathering that she might be the other woman mentioned. In a statement, she said:

“I am not the woman referred to in Charlotte Edwardes’ column.
“Boris was a good boss and nothing like this ever happened to me. Nor has Charlotte, who I like and admire, ever discussed the incident with me.”[3]
