An 82-year-old British pensioner has been reunited with her 36-year-old Egyptian husband after being separated for nearly a year while waiting for him to get his visa.
Iris Mohamady, an ex-cleaner from Weston-super-Mare in Somerset who lives on a pension of £200 a week and disability benefits, met Mohamed Ibriham, from Cairo, on Facebook in the summer of 2019.
The couple later met in person, before getting married in November 2020. But because Mohamed is waiting for a visa, they haven’t seen each other in person since December last year, via phone and Facebook chat.
Iris – who achieved national fame after sharing details about her sex life with Mohamed – spoke to the mirror and revealed that she was out shopping when Mohamed called to tell her that he had been granted a three-year visa after meeting the English language requirements and proving that he could move in with Iris.

The retiree took three buses from her £220,000 bungalow in Somerset to Heathrow Airport to greet him, before the couple toast their reunion over tea.
“We didn’t celebrate – we’re just together and that’s party enough,” she explained. “We just had a cup of tea together. Mohamed is happy, but can’t say much at the moment. He’s one of those reserved Egyptians.’
Iris has been making headlines since her marriage to Mohamed, previously saying he “makes her feel like a virgin again.”
She was also featured three times on the breakfast TV show This Morning, where she shared candid details about her sex life.

Her most recent interview on the show was in September this year, when she told presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, “My skin is very thin.
“It’s like tissue. Mohamed has to be careful when he grabs me because he tears my skin.
‘The skin on my legs is very thin. When it comes to making love, it can be painful. I could end up in the emergency room with skin tears. But we solved that problem by doing it doggy style. Love Hurts.’.
Phillip said, “Love finds a way.”
During one of her This Morning appearances, Iris was joined by Mohamed, who told viewers they could “go to hell” if they doubted his relationship with his wife.
He said: ‘Love knows no difference between age or countries, this is our life, Iris chose me and I chose Iris.
‘I want to say to all the people who attack our love, it’s none of your business, focus your life, go to hell. That’s all.
“I’m angry because I say in the media that people say I’m a toy boy. I’m a man, I’m a man, okay? I’m a man, not a toy boy. I am not [a] game, please don’t say that again.’
The couple have denied that Mohamed is with Iris for money or a passport – he told MailOnline he “didn’t care how rich or poor Iris is”, he just wants to “be with her”

The pair have vehemently denied that Mohamed is with Iris for money or a passport.
Speaking to MailOnline earlier this year, he said, “I don’t care where we live or how rich or poor she is, I just want to be with Iris.
‘In the end it’s her choice in which country she wants to make her home; it could be Great Britain or Egypt.
“People think I’m with her for the wrong reasons. I know Britain is a beautiful country and a lot of people want to go there, but it doesn’t bother me. I am willing to live with her anywhere in the world.”
