A pensioner who ditched her Egyptian toy boy lover to stay at home with her cat admitted she's being chatted up again.
Iris Jones, now 83, said she was the "happiest she'd been" when she met Mohamed Ibrahim back in November 2019. The former couple met on Facebook in February 2019, but she was hesitant to start a relationship at first.
She thought he was too young for her, so she didn't expect anything serious to happen. Eventually she ended up heading off to Cairo after she fell for his intellectual charm and good looks.

The romance sparked happiness for Iris following the death of her late husband Gwyn Jones in 2016. They divorced in 1993, and Iris was happy going on casual dates until she met Mohamed and sparks began to fly.
Iris told The Sun's Fabulous he seemed "interested" in her and his feelings also appeared genuine. Despite the age gap, he went onto propose to the pensioner and she admitted she was "besotted" with his charm and dashing looks.
Her feelings were later confirmed when she met him in person, but now she realises they moved too quickly. Before the relationship dwindled, they hit the headlines when they appeared on This Morning and told viewers all about their sex life.
They tied the knot in October 2020 and then Mohamed moved to the UK the following year. Unfortunately, in June this year the pair went their separate ways just three years after meeting online.
It appears the split has been quite hard as Mohamed claimed he was treated "like a sex slave" following the relationship breakdown. He even alleged Iris gave him strict rules as to when he could take a shower.
But Iris has also had her say since the split and claimed Mohamed "used her for sex". She recently spoke with Fabulous and said she hopes to never see Mohamed, 39, again.
Iris told Fabulous: "He wasn't my sex slave, he wasn't a romantic man, he didn’t like closeness, romance, he didn't like passion, no long lingering kisses. For him to claim he was my sex slave is absurd. I'm not sex mad at all, if he didn't touch me for a month it wouldn't bother me."
The pensioner said their relationship began to dwindle earlier this year after she told Mohamed she wanted to have her garden landscaped. She said he was cutting the grass at the time, and the conversation set off a series of arguments over cash.
She said her ex told her there was no need to splurge on paying for a professional gardener, but she thought she could spend her money as she saw fit. Iris also alleged he took £25,000 from her when he arrived in the UK, and she said she also sent him £14,000 when he was still in Egypt.
Iris confessed love can "make you blind", even though she thought she was being quite careful.
Mohamed previously told MailOnline he wasn't dumped as a result of being a "selfish money grabber". Instead he told the publication Iris used him as a "sex slave".
At the time, he said: "I don't care about money. 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. I've had many offers from rich women but I'm not like that. At first she was a good wife. But soon she began treating me like a slave. She was using me for sex."
But Iris claims she offered Mohamed a good life, and funded a lot of their finances. She said she has "nothing to hide", as she offered him a lovely home.
Despite the heartache, Iris is now focused on moving on with her life, and said she's already chatting to other blokes. One includes a 70-year-old she met on a forum for residents living in Somerset.
Even so, she's not ready to jump into another relationship quite yet. She has also found comfort with a Bengal kitten who she's named Mr BoJones.
"Quite frankly I don't care anymore, he can keep the money, I just want to be left alone," she added. "I’d like him to admit his lies but he won’t."
Fabulous noted that it asked Mohamed to comment on Iris's claims, but he didn't respond. He previously wrote in a Facebook post: "She cries tears like a crocodile."
