An 82-year-old grandmother who tied the knot with her 36-year-old boyfriend insists that she is not being conned.
Iris Jones, who made headlines when she appeared on This Morning and shared intimate details about her relationship with her man, is currently waiting for Mohamed Ibriham to join her in the UK.
The grandmother has now spoken of their ‘heartbreak’ on their first wedding anniversary as they have been away from each other because Mohamed is still waiting for a UK visa.
Iris from Weston-Super-Mare said that if Mohamed is not granted a visa, it would be the ‘end of the world.’
Speaking to The Sun, the 82-year-old said she talks to her husband about when they will see each other again.
The last time they were together was in December 2020 but they talk on Facebook and on the phone every day.
“I’ve seen programmes on television about women being scammed for thousands by younger men but I’ve never been this in love before,” Iris said.
“I know people think I’m a daft old biddy and he is taking advantage of me, although not for money – I don’t have any. I am not the sort of woman who can be scammed. And he’s never asked for any money – we split all expenses 50/50.
“I’m not afraid he will get a visa and then drop me. I trust him with my life.”
Iris previously shared details of their intimate life and admitted she enjoys shocking people. She admitted feeling shy about her appearance but her husband said she was ‘gorgeous.’
“He thinks I’m really gorgeous. I always feel ugly but he says I’m beautiful. We didn’t just have s*x, we’d lie in each other’s arms too,” she expressed.
