'I am looking for a good relationship. It's an opportunity.'
A 32-year-old Gambian man marries a Belgian woman '53 years his senior' in tonight's Channel 4 documentary Sex On The Beach, a programme that delves deep into sex tourism in the West African country.

Alka, a local man, has had a string of relationships with European tourists over the last 15 years, but has finally found his future wife in Francoise, 85.

Speaking to journalist Seyi Rhodes about his past relationships with international tourists, Alka insists some visitors are not good as they come to 'f*** you and leave you and when they go they dump you'.

'I am looking for a good relationship,' he says. 'It's an opportunity.'




Alka then shared details about Francoise and told Seyi: 'The one I have right now is more than 85-years-old. Of course, I do everything with her. It's nice to be nice.'

He added that he has never once asked for money, but that she sent him €60K (£54K).
