An 81-year-old British woman has married her 36-year-old Egyptian boyfriend, topping off the special day with a reception at KFC.
Speaking to Philip Schofield and Holly Willough, Iris Jones opened up about how she tied the knot with Mohamed Ahmed Ibriham, she said: “It was just an exchanging of documents, we had to sign several documents with a signature and a thumbprint.
“After that the documents were handed over to us to say that we were married, but it’s all in Arabic, I don’t know what it says at all.
“It might say that I am completely under his thumb – well, if that’s the case then I’m not.”
Holly then asked: “What about afterwards, how did you celebrate? Did you have a reception anywhere?”
Iris replied: “No, we went to KFC for chicken and French fries and Coca-Cola. If I eat spicy foods I am on the toilet all the time.”
The couple met on Facebook last year, but Iris’ family don’t approve the relationship.
She said: “I am getting the silent treatment at the moment, I haven’t heard anything from them.
“We love each other, that’s all that matters
