This Morning stars Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield were shocked to learn that guest cougar Iris, 81, is being ignored by her family after marrying her toyboy lover.
Iris is a huge fan of the ITV daytime show and she made a return appearance earlier today to talk about her wedding day to her Egyptian lover, despite there being a 45-year age difference.
She tied the knot with her husband Mohamed Ahmed Ibriham, 36, after flying out to Cairo to meet him in person following their virtual chats on Facebook.
Iris shrugged off concerns from her family and friends about their relationship.
Holly and Phil were joined by the newlyweds via video link during their honeymoon in Sharm El-Sheikh.
The hosts asked Iris what her family think of the marriage, with her saying: “I’m getting the silent treatment, I haven’t heard anything yet.”
Iris is hoping to try and get in contact with her family before her return to the UK on December 11.
The presenting pair also asked Iris what their honeymoon is like, with her responding: “It’s like a very posh holiday camp.”
She added about the wedding day: “It’s just an exchange of documents, we had to sign several documents with a signature and thumb print… it’s all in Arabic, I don’t know what it says, it might say that I’m completely under his thumb but if that’s the case, I’m not.”
Once the ceremony was over, the couple headed to KFC to celebrate.
She added: “If I eat their spicy food, I’m on the toilet all the time.”
The hosts were in fits of laughter, with Phil replying: “Yes, that can happen.”
It comes after Iris first appeared on the talk show back in January, where she made it clear to the hosts that she wanted to marry Mohamed.
Iris also made some explicit claims about their sex life during her stint on the show.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
