Darnell is a black man with albinism

Darnell said he has never met another albino person in is life (3.20pm). The lonely songwriter - who suffers from the congenital disorder characterised by a lack of pigment in his eyes, skin and hair - said he is the only person with his condition he has known.

He said: "I have never met another albino person in my life. I don't even consider myself to be an albino person. I'm a black person with albinism. But people get it confused."

The rapper went on to tell Mikey and Mohamed how he always has to explain his situation to bemused potential employers.

He said: "Anytime I go to an interview or fill out a form they always say, 'lets just confirm to make sure I got it right, it says you're black, right?'"

Darnell told Mikey he would be portrayed as a representative of the albino community, just as Mikey would be seen as an ambassador for blind people.

Mikey said: "I haven't got any blind friends. A lot of blind people aren't into the things I'm into.

"You're a rebellious albino and I'm a rebellious blind person. We're not the typical people with disabilities, otherwise we wouldn't be in the house."
