An 82-year-old British pensioner has been reunited with her 36-year-old Egyptian husband after almost a year apart while they waited for him to get his visa.
Iris Mohamady, an ex-cleaner from Weston-super-Mare in Somerset, who gets by on a £200-a-week pension and disability benefit, met Mohamed Ibriham, from Cairo, on Facebook in the Summer of 2019.
The pair later met in person, before marrying each other in November 2020. But due to Mohamed’s wait for a visa, they haven’t seen each other in person since last December, keeping in touch via phone and Facebook chat.
Iris – who gained national notoriety after sharing details of her sex life with Mohamed – spoke to The Mirror and revealed she was shopping when Mohamed rang to tell her that he’d been granted a three-year visa after meeting the English language requirements and proving he was able to move in with Iris.

The 82-year-old has gained national fame after revealing frank details about her sex life with Mohamed – including their favourite position
The pensioner took three coaches from her £220,000 bungalow in Somerset to Heathrow Airport to greet him, before the pair toasted their reunion with a cup of tea.
‘We didn’t celebrate – we are just together and that’s celebration enough,’ sh explained. ‘We just had a cup of tea together. Mohamed is happy but he can’t say much at the moment. He’s one of those reserved Egyptians.’
Iris has made headlines since her wedding to Mohamed and previously said that he ‘makes her feel like a virgin again’.
She has also appeared on breakfast TV show This Morning three times, where she shared frank details about her sex life.
Mohamed had to meet English language requirements and show proof that he could move in with Iris in order to get his visa, which he received on 3rd November
Her most recent interview on the show was in September this year, when she told hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield: ‘My skin is very thin.
‘It’s like tissue. Mohamed has to be careful when he gets hold on me, because he rips my skin.
‘The skin on my legs is very very thin. When it comes to making love it can be painful. I can end up at the A&E with skin rips. But we’ve solved that problem as we do it doggy-fashion. Love hurts.’.
Phillip said: ‘Love finds a way’.
During one of her This Morning appearances, Iris was joined by Mohamed, who told viewers that they could ‘go to hell’ if they doubted his relationship with his wife.
He said: ‘The love does not know any difference between age, or countries this is our life, Iris chose me and I chose Iris.
‘I want to say for all the people who attack our love, it’s none of your business, focus your lives, go to hell. That is all.
‘I am angry about saying on the media, people say I am a toy boy. I am a man, I am a man, okay? I am a man, not a toy boy. I am not [a] game, please do not 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.
‘At the end of the day, which country she wants to make her home is her choice; it can be either Britain or Egypt.
‘People think I am with her for all the wrong reasons. I know Britain is a beautiful country and a lot of people want to go there but I’m not bothered. I’m prepared to live with her anywhere in the world.’
