Vicky initially worked as a dancer in Barcelona under the stage name Victoria Leyton.

However, shortly after dictator Francisco Franco died in 1975, his censorship on s**ual morality began to ease – which meant the public was more eager to see explicit performances.

Capitalising on this, she soon found success by performing a magic act where she would remove unusual objects from her v**ina.

Vicky premiered her show in Barcelona cabarets – to huge acclaim and she performed in northern Spanish cities in Spain and many variety theatres abroad before finding a home in Benidorm.

She removed many objects from her v**ina including ping pong balls, eggs, light bulbs, razors and even machetes.

According to Spanish outlet El Pais, Vicky would conclude her act by opening a bottle of beer with her v**ina and pouring it on the stage.

She retired in 2016, aged 72, shortly after she was diagnosed with uterine cancer.

Her daughter María has followed in her footsteps and adopted her mum’s stage name to continue the legend of Sticky Vicky.

The performer was recently hospitalised after she smashed her knees while getting into her car.

She spent a few days in the hospital and was released, but unfortunately, she had to return after one leg got infected and she began to feel more pain, as per Metro.
