A grandmother has spoken out following her divorce from her toyboy partner over 40 years her junior.
Iris Jones' comments on This Morning about her and Mohamed Ibriham's sex life caused quite the stir - the pair having first met on Facebook in 2019 and embarking on a whirlwind romance which saw them married in Egypt the following year.
Unfortunately, the 83-year-old is no longer spending hours in bed each week with her 37-year-old lover, as she's split up with him and thrown him out of her house in Weston-super-Mare.
Iris - whose family didn't approve of the relationship - didn't deny the pair 'used to have great sex' but admitted to the MailOnline it soon 'dwindled to nothing'.
She explained: "Because I was always so tired from looking after him. I would do all his cooking, cleaning and tidying.
"I'm better off without him, and I wish I had listened to my family and friends but what's done is done now."
Sadly it doesn't look like the pair will even make up as friends anytime soon either, with Iris saying she does 'regret meeting him' and 'threw him out last month' - not having heard from him or seen him since, bar a few friends spotting him round the area.
The 83-year-old reflected: "He took it very badly, he didn't see it coming but that's the way it is. You move on now, don't you?
Iris told Closer she 'adored everything about Mohamed' but ultimately the relationship became 'hard work' and she's 83 not 'a lovesick teenager'.
Iris is now quite happy 'just being here on [her] own with [...] Bengal cat Mr Tibbs'.
"He's the new love of my life. I'm glad I've got rid of Mohamed."
Thankfully, alongside Mr Tibbs, Jones is also surrounded by friends - one of whom is 'very spiritual' and reassured her 'it was meant to be'.
"I think it was his image that I fell in love with him, if he was bald and had a pot-bellied I doubt I would have become infatuated with him," the 83-year-old continued. "I certainly don't feel love for him at the moment, what I do feel is stupid and I should have known better."
Iris notes she doesn't 'regret the good times' but was 'blinded by love' and wishes she hadn't got married to Ibriham.
However, with an ending comes a new beginning, and Iris' next chapter?
Well, she resolved: "There is no way I will have him back and now my love and attention is focused on my cat Mr Tibbs.
"He's all that matters, I adore him and he never complains."
I'll drink to that.
