Much-loved pensioner Iris Jones who has been separated from her toyboy lover as he struggles to secure his spousal visa has shared a message to him saying 'you are in my heart forever'.
The 81-year-old tagged her 36-year-old hubby, Mohamed Ahmed Ibraham, in the post next to the words 'For my husband'.
Iris met Egyptian Mohamed on Facebook last year before she flew to Cairo last November, topping their special day off with a low-key reception at KFC.
Now the pair have been forced to spend time apart as Iris' new husband is struggling to secure a spousal visa for the UK leaving them unsure about when they will be together once again.
In her most recent Facebook post, Iris shared a GIF of a love heart formed out of rose petals. She tagged Mohamed and wrote it the comments: "You are in my heart forever."
Mohamed responded to her message writing: "Iris Jones I am for you forever," to which Iris replied: "Thank you my honey."
This latest message comes after a tearful Iris spoke to the Metro, saying: "I get days when I'm alright and other days when I'm just crying all the time.
"I'm separated from someone I love, it's so hard. I haven't got time on my side, his lawyers know that. I've had to go over there three times and come back without him.
"I keep on at Mohamed to get his law firm to hurry up with the visa, I don't know what the delay is, but it is complicated."
The grandmother explained her husband has 'many, many documents' to fill before he can come to Britain, adding that she's been suffering from 'headaches and stress'.
She went on: "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."
Iris - who spent Christmas with her two sons, Stephen, 54, and Darren, 53 - said Mohamed's work as an engineer doesn't bring in enough money as the wages are 'absolutely lousy'.
This means they're now stuck on separate continents, as he can't save money and she 'can't afford to go back' as she came home 'skint' after her last visit.
For now, the two speak daily on Windows Live Messenger, but Iris worries what their future holds 'if he can't get a visa', and fears that she may not have much time left to spend with her husband.Featured Image Credit: Facebook/Iris Jones
