Iris Ball is the mum of Michelle (aged 33), and grandmother of Ryan (aged 3) and Kyle (aged 1).

She was prime carer of Kyle as Ryan would take up Michelle's time. Although Kyle had a stronger bond with her than Michelle, she mentioned that she didn't want to be a second mum to Kyle because of her age.

She was 69 years old when she appeared on Supernanny and is now 81 in 2017.
