This week, Les talks about being a black African in Switzerland. "The same people who thought I was so cute as a child clutched their bags tighter when they saw me going out aged 18 or 19." He admits to being macho, "We have to put on a tough face because we're in the minority."

Asked about the notion that black people have bigger penises, he replied: "I don't know. I've only seen my own and I'm happy with that".
