The couple are said to have failed to answer calls, and The Sunday Mirror reported they didn’t show up until 1.30am.
However,
a source close to the couple also told the paper that they didn’t see
what the fuss was about as they had felt their son had been perfectly
safe and said he had been happy to stay in the B&B while his parents
went out.
It is
believed Mr Gove had ben spotted dancing at the celebrity party after
comedian Dom Joly tweeted: ‘Amazing party at @131TheProm celebrating end
of Chelt Lit Fest – only slightly ruined by the sight of the loathsome
Michael Gove dancing.’

Also
among the other guest was writer of political comedy The Thick Of It
Armando Iannucci who is understood to have given a talk at the festival
the following day and where he name-dropped Mr Gove and his moves on the
dance floor.
Mr
Gove and Ms Vine had been staying at the £250-a-night No.38 in
Cheltenham, and a source told The Sunday Mirror the couple had gone out
between 6pm and 7pm.
They had checked in on October 14 and the party was the following night.
The
Government’s own guidelines state under-12s should not be left to fend
for themselves for a long period of time due to them ‘rarely being
mature enough’.
However,
the law does not specify an age children can be left on their own,
although parents can be prosecuted but only if an unsupervised child is
placed in a position ‘in a manner likely to cause unnecessary suffering
or injury to health’.
An
official spokesman told the Mirror tonight they believed their son to
be a mature and confident secondary school pupil and that he was happy
to stay in the hotel room under staff supervision because he preferred
to watch TV than go out for dinner.
He
added they had no mobile phone reception because they were in the
basement bar and that staff knew how to get hold of them in an
emergency.
MailOnline has contacted Mr Gove for a comment, but he was not immediately available.
