    Born in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain, in 1943 she retired in 2015, but for more than 35 years wowed the masses who made their way to the sun-drenched holiday town. Around Benidorm, signs could be spotted for the illusionist and exotic dancer’s shows. Vicky, full name Victoria María Aragüés Gadea, showed off her vaginal magic as the jewel in her repertoire.

    At the peak of her powers, she would perform six nights a week – six times. That famous – and rather rude show – would see her pull remarkable items, like razor blades and ping pong balls, from her private parts. In another part of the now-infamous show, she opened beer bottles with her intimate area.

    Her stomping ground was the Costa Blanca Resort, also known as Little England due to its huge numbers of Brits flocking to the resort to catch a bit of sun and a couple of cold ones.

    She last performed in the autumn of 2015 at the age of 72 and is understood to have been diagnosed with uterine cancer the following year. Her final performance came just days before she went under the knife for hip replacement surgery.

    According to The Sun, in April 2023 she is understood to have been diagnosed with early-onset dementia. She died in November.

    Her daughter Maria followed in her mother’s footsteps to carry on the unusual family business. She is understood to have watched her mum perform from a young age. Maria also performs under the name of Sticky Vicky in what she says is a bid to fend off copycats.

    Following the news of her mother’s passing, she shared a heartfelt tribute. It read: “I regret these words, my mother Sticky Vicky passed away today at 6 in the morning, I can't believe it. She has gone, surrounded by her family, with all of our love. I thank God for being able to always be by her side, I am left with a broken heart."

    Over her 35-year career, she is said to have amassed a massive net worth of around £3.5million, according to various outlets, although this has not been verified.
