Gambia has become a sex paradise for British grans that makes Magaluf look tame

A horny granny grinds against her Gambian toyboy at the bar, her Zimmer frame screeching back and forth with every thrust.

Nearby, a silver-haired siren snogs her gym-honed lover while he squeezes her saggy bottom.

Gambia has become a sex paradise for retired Brits with randy grans indulging in a good time with local, young men

There may be horror stories about Gambian men who target Brit women they see as a meal ticket, but increasingly grans are turning the scam on its head

Outside, a pensioner is devouring her younger catch, the pair kiss each other greedily before she drags him back to her hotel.

Welcome to The GRANbia, the West Africa sex paradise for retired Brits who make youngsters partying in Magaluf look tame.

Bake Off judge Prue Leith wrote recently that the country is a “real-life Tinder dream for geriatrics”, after being shocked by the number of “elderly white European women happily strolling along hand in hand with beautiful young Gambian men” during a holiday with her husband.

And within hours of landing in sun-kissed Kotu, The Sun can report she wasn’t exaggerating.

There’s so much candy in here it’s hard to control yourself . . . even at my age.


“What happens in Gambia, stays in Gambia,” Barbara, an eightysomething woman from Manchester says with a wink, as her wedding band glints in the beach bar’s lights. “There’s so much candy in here it’s hard to control yourself . . . even at my age.”

Chuckling, she points into the distance and says: “They’re my sisters — looks like they’ve got lucky.”

A grey fug of smoke from cigarettes and weed wafts to the top of a palm tree with her two OAP siblings below. The pair are pushed up against the bar, giggling like naughty teenagers as their toyboys tickle and tease them.

Everywhere I look, Western women are flaunting their younger lovers like must-have accessories as reggae blasts out.

The antics of these pensioners make Magaluf look tame

There are plenty of horror stories about Gambian “bumsters” — a term used to describe unemployed Gambian men who target Western women they see as a meal ticket to the UK.

But now there are increasing numbers of British grannies who turn the scam on its head — indulging in the charms of the Gambian men but keeping their wallets tightly closed.

Savvy Jackie Simpson, 62, a kitchen porter from Cleethorpes, Lincs, tells how she’s had 15 Gambian lovers in seven years but hasn’t given them a penny.

“You’ve got to be careful,” she warns. “They’re good looking but you can’t trust them. They believe ‘old is gold’. To me it’s just a bit of fun, I don’t see them as real relationships.

English guys are a bit vulgar, but the Gambian men I’ve met have been romantic.

"I come out twice a year with my girlfriends. English guys are a bit vulgar, but the Gambian men I’ve met have been romantic.”

Jackie tells how she is on a girls’ holiday with her sister Julie Ramsey, 60, a housekeeper, and three other British pals. "We love reggae music,” she continues, giggling. “We’ve been partying most nights until 5am!”

Julie adds: “I’ve been seeing a 36-year-old Gambian for about three years. But it’s not a proper relationship.

He’s not coming to England and we are not getting married. I tell him I’ve got no savings.”

For women of a certain age, who may feel they have become invisible to men back home in Britain, Gambia really can seem like the “Tinder dream” Prue describes.

My view: You hear so many bad stories about some women that were scammed after falling for young Gambia men and some women still don't care, as they just want to enjoy and have fun, until they have nothing left in their account.
