IT’S usually babies that get kissed on the campaign trail — but Lucia, wife of Tory leadership hopeful Jeremy Hunt, found herself smack bang in the centre of attention.

The mother-of-three, 41, was animatedly embraced by one of her husband’s backers, foreign office minister and Tory MP Mark Field, during an event to launch his campaign yesterday.

Mr Hunt, the foreign secretary, had to apologise to his wife last July after mistakenly referring to her as Japanese rather than Chinese, during a trip to Beijing and later tweeted a picture of a large bouquet of flowers he took home to make amends.
