Benidorm legend Sticky Vicky ‘facing months out’ after smashing knees in fall

Benidorm legend Sticky Vicky has had to return to hospital after a freak accident badly damaged her knees, and has been told it will take several months for her leg to heal.

The retired dancer – real name Victoria Aragues Gadea – initially spent five days in the hospital, where she had staples inserted into her knees before she was discharged.

However, she has had to go back into hospital again since the accident and horror pictures reveal the extent of the injuries.

The 79-year-old – known for her X-rated magic shows in the Spanish resort popular with Brit holidaymakers – smashed her knees getting into a car.

One of her knees became infected and she has now suffered complications due to anti-blood clot drugs she takes.

She was first taken to hospital on July 3 and spent five days there before being sent back on Saturday, July 9.

Vicky said: "I would like to thank everyone for their support and blessings.

"It makes me happy to know that they still love me and remember me.

"We were in the hospital for my cures, everything is going very well, the leg looks better.

"The problem was that I take anticoagulant pills and they had to replace them with injections.

"A little late but they are working, so now it will take a few months to heal the wound."

Vicky spent 35 years entertaining millions of tourists with her saucy routine.

It included pulling objects – like ping pong balls and beer bottles – from inside her body.

She retired in 2016 aged 72.

Its estimated six million people have seen her show since she started it in the mid-70s.

Her daughter Maria Gadea Aragues has since taken over her mum's saucy routine.

Vicky added: "I keep myself entertained with my daughter, I go with her to her sports activities, and I will try to enjoy the summer as much as I can.

"The doctors told me not to sit still, it is good to have activity for the mobility of the knee, thank God no bone was damaged."

Fan William Panton said: "You're a very clever woman.

"I saw you once in Benidorm and thought you were great. Hope you get better soon."

Debra Morris added: "Wonderful news, thank goodness. Take care now."

Michael Connell said: "Great news that you are doing well."
