A pensioner who left This Morning viewers shocked by sharing graphic details of her sex life with her Egyptian toyboy has married her lover.
Mohamed Ahmed Ibriham, 35, swept British grandmother Iris Jones, 80, from Somerset, off her feet when they met on Facebook last year and she flew to Egypt to be with him.
The couple made hosts Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield blush earlier this year after admitting that their first night of passion, which included an ‘entire tube of KY jelly’, left Iris ‘saddle sore’.
According to Al-Watan news, the couple have now officially wed, with Mohamed revealing: ‘I do not want a nationality nor do I want money, I am comfortable like this and I work, praise be to God, with my money.’

Iris first struck up a conversation with Cairo native Mohamed, last summer on a Facebook group exploring atheism.
He initially declared love for her through social media and then said his feelings were confirmed when he saw Iris for the first time at Cairo airport last November.
Speaking to MailOnline earlier this year, he recalled: ‘I was very nervous but the moment I laid eyes on her I knew that it was true love. I’m a very lucky man to have found a woman like this.’
Mohamed worked as welding inspector but gave up his job to spend time with Iris when she came to Cairo.

He lives in a three-room house with his parents plus two sisters and a brother who are all younger than him, but vehemently denied he was with Iris for her money or a passport to Britain.
Iris, a former cleaner, lives in a £220,000 bungalow and gets by on a £200-a-week pension and disability benefit.
Mohamed 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.’
After meeting last summer online, within a fortnight, Mohamed had professed his love and by November, Iris had arranged to fly over to Cairo to meet him in person
Mohamed revealed that during her visit to Egypt he took Iris home for dinner, where she spent time with his mother.
‘My mother really liked Iris and they got on well even though there was a language problem.
‘But my mother said to me that if I’m happy, then she’s happy. That’s all any mother wants; for her son to be with a woman he really loves.’
Iris, who divorced her ex-husband more than 40 years ago, has now managed to save up to and return to Egypt in order to marry Mohamed, who is from Giza.
Iris left This Morning presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield in hysterics after she appeared on the programme in January to discuss her sex life
The couple’s relationship hit the spotlight earlier this year when Iris went on ITV’s This Morning to discuss the huge age gap and ended up revealing details of their sex life.
Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield weren’t prepared for how forthcoming she would be and immediately collapsed in giggles as the OAP exclaimed: ‘The first night was pretty rough.
‘Nobody had been near me for 35 years… I thought I was a virgin again!’ As Phil, 57, held his head in his hands, Iris continued: ‘Can I tell you what we used? A whole tube of KY jelly’.
Collapsing in laughter, a flustered Holly, 38, couldn’t control herself as Iris continued: ‘The thing is I couldn’t walk the next day… I felt like I was riding a horse! Saddle sore wasn’t in it. Anyway, we got over it.’

Speaking to MailOnline from his home in Giza, south of Cairo, earlier this year Mohamed stressed that while people may be skeptical about their relationship, his love for Iris is real.
‘It might seem a bit strange having a wife who is 20 years older than your mother but that’s love,’ he said. ‘It makes you blind.
‘When you are a man and you fall in love with a woman, it doesn’t matter how old she is or what she looks like.’
