An Egyptian toyboy, 35, has defended his relationship with an 80-year-old gran from Britain on This Morning.
Speaking to presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield from Cairo, Mohamed Ahmed Ibriham claimed that he fell in love with Iris Jones as she ‘understood’ and ‘comforted’ him.
He said: “Hello everyone in the studio. I am Mohamed, I am an Egyptian man, I have engineering of courses, I meet Iris online.
“We chatted, we chatted, she wants to come to Egypt to see the pyramids, I meet her, I found Iris understood me and comforted me.”
He continued: “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 toyboy. I am a man, I am a man, okay? I am a man, not a toyboy. I am not [a] game, please do not say that again.”
Later on in the interview, the This Morning presenters asked Jones how her husband felt about her previous ‘NSFW’ interview on the daytime show.
The pensioner replied: “He said ‘Why was I so graphic?’. Because I speak the truth.
“I have a tube of KY jelly with me this time, I haven’t used it I might go back to the shop and get my money back.”
Previously, Jones has claimed that her Egyptian toyboy has ‘offered to sign a prenup’ to prove he’s truly in the relationship for love.
In a chat with the Mirror, the gran claimed: “In Egypt we were quite frivolous, going out to the best restaurants all the time and we split everything 50/50.
“He’s even said he’ll sign a prenup because it’s me he wants – not my house.
“I’ve spent years making other people happy, now I just want to marry the man I love before I die.
“I’ve always been a bit of a rebel and he’s just perfect for me.”
