Viewers stunned after ‘sex tourist grannies’ head to Gambia to have 'a different man every night

An eye-opening documentary into female sex tourism in the Gambia left viewers cringing last night.

Sex on the Beach is an hour-long documentary which sees Channel 4 Dispatches reporter Seyi Rhodes travel to the Gambia to investigate the country’s reputation as a destination for British sex tourists.

In the documentary, which aired on Channel 4 last night, a woman tells Seyi the country is 'paradise' because 'you can have a different man every night.

The bars are full of white women in search of sun, sea and sex with younger Gambian men and the programmes asks whether these relationships can ever be genuine given the gap in culture, age and wealth. 

Seyi speaks to 32-year-old Alka, a local man who has had a string of relationships with older European women.

Alka says that there are often what he calls 'holidaymakers' who come to have sex with younger Gambian men then leave.

He added: 'It really hurts me. I don't like it. I am looking for a good relationship.'

Alka is now married to Francoise, a 68-year-old Belgian woman, although he initially claimed she was in her 80s.

Francoise sent her Gambian love interest the equivalent of £54,000 although he says he never asked for any money.

In exchange, he says he gives her 'happiness' and Francoise says he makes her feel like a 'new-born baby' with a second chance at life.
