An 81-year-old grandmother who tied the knot with her 36-year-old Egyptian toyboy now fears that time is running out for them after they got separated.
Iris Jones from the UK married Mohamed Ahmed Ibriham from Egypt in November 2020 after they met on Facebook in 2019.
But after numerous trips to see him, she returned to Somerset, leaving her husband in Egypt where he is now stuck due to a delay in his visa.
Iris now fears time is running out for them as she could ‘drop dead’ before they see each other again.
Speaking to Metro, she said: “I’m separated from someone I love, it’s so hard. I haven’t got age on my side. I could drop dead tomorrow. Every day is precious.”
This comes after she admitted to feeling ‘skint and alone’ when she returned to her home without Mohammed.
Earlier this year, the 81-year-old had Philip Schofied and Holly Willoughy bursting in tears when she shared how she used ‘an entire tub of KY jelly’ during her first night of lovemaking with her husband.
But the 36-year-old is now struggling to secure a spousal visa for the UK and Iris doesn’t know when they will be together again.
She previously told Metro that she is relying on her husband living with her in Weston-super-Mare as she doesn’t want to go back to Egypt.
Iris explained that the trips have been very expensive and that the country’s environment is not good for her health.
“I get days when I’m alright and other days when I’m just crying all the time,” Iris expressed. “I’m separated from someone I love, it’s so hard. I haven’t got time on my side, his lawyers know that.”
“I’m going to the doctor to get a letter saying I’ve got so many health issues I need my husband with me in Britain, hoping they’ll bend the rules a bit and let him come over and look after me,” she added.
