Sticky Vicky - The Legend Uncovered

Sticky Vicky retired on 13th February 2016 after being a Benidorm legend for many many years.  No trip to Benidorm was complete without seeing her act.


Demaria Leyton  (María Gadea Aragues) Vicky´s Daughter  is retiring. "We would like to thank everybody for so many years of visits to our show, we wish the best for all our fans of the show and of the Legend Sticky Vicky, thank you."

The history of Sticky Vicky

Born in the Canary Islands on 15th April 1943 Victoria Aragues Garcia, she had been a dancer all her life and studied classical ballet for 15 year,. in her early days she worked as a dancer in theatres with her sister who was a contortionist, they worked the length and breadth of Spain.

Life was tough in the early days as Spain was under the iron rule of General Franco which meant that even a glimpse of naked flesh was frowned upon.

With Franco´s death in 1975 Spain went mad with the sudden freedom and you needed to be doing something very different to get noticed.

Vicky was told the place to get noticed was Benidorm and moved here from Barcelona where she was managing the La Molino theatre.  She realised on arrival in town in the early 80´s that she needed an act that was totally original and a sexy magic show was certainly that, it took a lot practice, and indeed a couple of nasty accidents (you know where) before she was happy with the show.

Her notoriety spread rapidly, and even after more than 30 years of performing the sexy magic show and right up until the day she retired she could fill any venue in Benidorm.

Another performer (María Rosa Pereira, known as Sexy Barbara) actually registered the name Sticky Vicky as her trading name so the real Sticky Vicky (Vicky Leyton) couldn’t use that name anymore. 

In 2001 Vicky sued here fellow performer,  for using the stage name Sticky Vicky. Although Vicky won her case in the Benidorm court, the ruling was overturned on appeal by the Audiencia Provincial of Alicante, which, however, ruled that the name could be protected as a choreographic work. In 2009, and the court determined that María Rosa had acted in bad faith and generated confusion by registering the name, and awarded Vicky the legal trademark for her stage name Sticky Vicky.

Vicky´s daughter Demaria (María Gadea Aragüés) followed in her mothers footsteps and also performed a similar show including fabulous acrobatics.

Their fame was not just limited to Spain, Vicky and Demaira attracted a huge amount of media attention back in the UK after being on the TV Series "Benidorm" and Demaria performed her first ever UK show in Blackpool in 2016.

Behind the famous faces you will find two lovely ladies, who love nothing more than relaxing at the house they share, they enjoy looking after the garden and the multitude of pets they have.

I got told off. By a young man for taking my mum of 80 to see her in 2015. But she stood right at the front and loved the show. Almost as much as she loves benidorm. We're back in may staying at ruidor this time
