The husband of This Morning guest Iris Jones has denied her accusations he married her for money and claimed he was the one being used, for sex.

The 83-year-old grandmother from Weston-Super-Mare found fame after she appeared on the ITV show in 2020 to discuss her Facebook romance with 37-year-old Mohamed Ibriham from Cairo, Egypt, but recently revealed they had separated and claimed she gave him thousands of pounds during their relationship.

Ibrahim has now told Mail Online: "I treated Iris like a queen, but she used me as a sex slave. I loved her but she broke my heart."

He added: "At first she was a good wife. But soon she began treating me like a slave. She was using me for sex.

"She stopped me having a shower, she wouldn't even let me use the toilet when I got back from work."

Ibrahim has denied Jones' claims he took her money, saying: "We helped each other with money, just like any husband and wife."

He added: "It's not true that I've never had a job – I've worked all over the Middle East as a welding inspector on power stations, in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. I had a good salary.

"If I had been looking for money, I would have married a rich woman, not Iris."

Ibrahim claimed he genuinely cared about Jones and when she was ill in hospital he slept on the floor for three days to be close by and support her.

He claimed that he has been left feeling unwell following the breakdown of their relationship and had seen a doctor for help with insomnia.

He also said he felt too humiliated to return to Egypt.

Ibrahim said of his marriage to Jones: "I was stupid, I made a wrong decision. People warned me about having a relationship with her. I was blind."

Jones and Ibriham met on Facebook in 2019 and sparked concern amongst her family when he proposed after just three week and despite the 46 year age gap.

Jones recently claimed in a lengthy post on Facebook that she has paid almost £70,000 to Ibriham since they met, and said their marriage broke down when she told him she could not afford to give him any more money.

The couple married the third time Jone visited him in Egypt in November 2020 and Ibriham moved to live with Jones in Weston-Super-Mare after being granted a three-year-visa in 2021.

Jones appeared on This Morning in January 2020 and told hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield their love was “real and true” and he had agreed to sign a legal document to prove he did not want to lay claim to her money.
