Jeremy Hunt’s wife has accidentally referred to him as ‘that c*nt’ at a meeting with a delegation of Chinese government officials. 

According a source at a gala cocktail reception in Beijing, she said, ‘My husband that c*nt.’

’Actually sorry, I mean Jeremy.’

The gaffe comes after Mr Hunt referred to her as ‘Japanese’ instead of ‘Chinese’ earlier in the day.

A close friend said, ‘It’s an easy mistake to make, so I have taught him the ‘stretchy eye trick’ in case he forgets in the future.’
