Pensioner Iris Jones 'Crying All The Time' Without Toyboy Husband
Pensioner Iris Jones has said she is 'crying all the time' without her toyboy lover Mohamed Ahmed Ibraham, who is 45 years her junior, as he struggles to secure his spousal visa.
Iris, 81, has previously spoken out about her relationship with Mohamed, 36, having won over the nation with various TV interviews detailing their unique relationship.
After meeting online in a Facebook group exploring atheism, the couple got married in Cairo last November, topping their special day off with a low-key reception at KFC.
But now the couple have been forced apart, as Mohamed is struggling to secure a spousal visa for the UK.
Speaking to the Metro - which said the was 'breaking down in tears' during the interview - Iris said: "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'.
"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 said, adding that she couldn't return to Egypt as the country 'does not suit' her.
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.
"They say all will come to those who wait, trouble is I don't have long to wait," she said.
"I haven't got age on my side. I could drop dead tomorrow. Every day is precious. It's bloody awful being apart."
