Grandmother-of-ten who stunned family by marrying Tunisian toy-boy she met online begs Home Office to grant him a visa and vows to convert to Islam to prove her devotion to her husband.
A grandmother-of-ten who stunned her family by marrying a Tunisian toy-boy she met online is begging the Home Office to grant him a visa and has vowed to convert to Islam for him.
Jane Makhloufi, 47, from Leeds, was swept off her feet by 32-year-old Mohamed after meeting him online when her first marriage collapsed.
Despite warnings it was a scam, the mother-of-seven flew to Tunisia and tied the knot following a whirlwind romance.
Now, to further prove her devotion, Mrs Makhloufi wants to become a Muslim, like her new husband, and start wearing a hijab.
Jane Makhloufi, 47, from Leeds, was swept off her feet by 32-year-old Mohamed, from Tunisia, after meeting him online when her first marriage collapsed. The pair married in his native country a year after they first met.
But Mohamed, 32, has so far been refused a UK Visa and relies on handouts from his wife while he searches for work.
Mrs Makhloufi, who earns gets £70-a-week in incapacity benefits, has pleaded his case with the Home Office without success.
She has asked the Prime Minister David Cameron, Nick Clegg and even The Queen for their support.
