‘Someone grabbed my t*ts so I headbutted him. It happens all the time’: British ‘shot


British shot girls working on the infamous Magaluf strip have told how they have been forced to headbutt drunken partygoers who have sexually assaulted them.

Magaluf reps, many of whom are women in their early 20s working for around £10 per hour, have opened up about the vile misogyny they face ‘on a daily basis’.

Just days after the Balearic Islands toughened up drinking laws to crack down on boozy tourists, dejected-looking reps claimed the abuse they face is ‘part of the job’, while others admitted girls need to have a ‘thick skin’ to work in Magaluf.

One girl told how she only started working in Magaluf because she had to ‘flee a pervert boss’ from a yacht job in nearby Palma, while another ended up with cuts and bruises after fighting off a man who had groped her breasts.

A third rep working on the Magaluf strip said that she was slapped in the face and called a ‘fat s**g’ by a British man after simply offering him a free shot.

On Thursday night, MailOnline witnessed men grabbing shot girls inappropriately, kissing them on the face and shouting sexual remarks from bars and terraces.

Tori, 21, told MailOnline that working along the strip is ‘crazy’, adding: ‘I deal with s**t on a daily basis. The other day some guy came up to me and grabbed my t**s so I headbutted him and then I fell over and cut my knee. It happens all the time.’

She added: ‘I just feel like “give over haven’t you got a wife and kids at home?” Trying it on with girls all the time, it’s just ridiculous.’

Tori said that she regrets coming to Magaluf ‘at least once every day’ but then her mind changes. ‘You just have to get yourself back into it,’ she said.

The 21-year-old, from Leicester, said that she is planning to spend the whole season in Magaluf. ‘It’s tiring, draining, but better than England,’ she added.

She continued: ‘It is what it is, you just get used to it or I just headbutt them. A lot of the bouncers are really good. If they see someone they will get involved, they don’t let girls get taken the p*** out of.’

When asked what she would say to the drunken lads who harass shot girls, she laughed and said: ‘I’d tell them to die.’

Shortly after speaking to MailOnline, Tori was approached by a group of men wearing sailor hats and one of them grabbed her face and kissed her on the cheek.

Afterwards, she said: ‘It’s just part of the job. I got him in, didn’t I? And he bought some shots.’

Working slightly higher up on the strip near a silent disco club was Cerys Rodgers, 22, who revealed she only ended up working in Magaluf because she was forced to escape a job on a yacht in Palma, the capital of Majorca.

‘I literally fled the yacht. I was running with all my cases in tears because the guy on the yacht was a perv,’ she said.

‘I knew someone in Ayia Napa and I asked him if he knew anyone in Magaluf and he sorted me out a job.’

Cerys, who had originally travelled to Majorca to work as a yacht stewardess in Palma, said that she feels people in Magaluf are ‘quite strange’.

‘I’ve not really met anyone like it before,’ the 22-year-old from Sheffield, said. ‘Everyone’s very money-hungry. They aren’t very nice to you but you have to find the right people.’

When asked if she ever feels uncomfortable, she said: ‘Not when I am sober, but if I am drunk then they are quite scary. I feel vulnerable if I am drunk, but if I am witnessing them when I am sober I think “Ah I can take them!”.

‘People just don’t give a f***, they come to Magaluf for a few days they are away from their wives and kids and they will do anything, they are not ar**d.

Another shot girl, who did not want to be named, revealed: ‘I’ve been groped and I got slapped on the face and called a fat s**g by a British lad when I tried to offer him shots.

‘You have to have a thick skin to work here.’

A fourth female rep, Ruby, said: ‘I love it here. But you do get old men sexually harassing you but there’s lots of security and bosses watching you. They ask if you are OK.’

As she spoke to MailOnline, two topless men on a quad bike beeped at her while she handed out drink vouchers in a bikini.

And shot girl Amy admitted: ‘I get hassled all the time by lads.’ Yawning after a long night on the strip, she added: ‘It’s just part of the job. It’s Magaluf.’

Speaking about inappropriate behaviour from drunken men, Magaluf rep Clodagh Fitzgerald, 23, said: ‘I think it depends on the person, I am thick-skinned anyway so I more or less get out and f*** off.

‘Everything that’s not normal is just normal here. There’s always security around to make sure nothing will happen.

‘Last year everyone seemed a bit more crazy, I think everyone’s kind of settled this year, well so far anyway.

She added: ‘I’ve been here for about a month and a half now but I was here last year as well at the same place. I love it, I love meeting new people and being away makes you appreciate it being home as well so much more when you do go back.’

When pressed on why everyone is so desperate to get tourists to come to their bar, she said that competing reps can ‘make more money if you are good at your job’.

Magaluf has long been known for its heavy drinking culture and debauchery on the late-night strip.

But the island of Majorca is attempting to curb rowdy behaviour by toughening laws which were first introduced in 2020.

Partygoers in Palma, Magaluf and Llucmajor in Majorca and San Antonio in Ibiza now face hefty fines for drinking in the street.

Any tourists found breaking these rules could end up with fines anywhere between £645 and £1,290.

But the fresh ban has also seen party boats banned from getting closer than one nautical mile (1.852 km) of the designated areas.

And shops which previously had to stop selling alcohol at 9.30pm in areas of ‘excessive tourism’ must now shut completely at this time.

The Balearic Islands has vowed to spend €16million (£13.7million) on enforcing the street drinking ban as well as on security, inspections and educating tourists.

The strict rules will be in place until December 2027 – by which point the government is confident the law will no longer be needed.

Despite the rules coming in last weekend, MailOnline has seen dozens of partygoers drinking in the street and avoiding fines.

Rowdy Brits have vowed to defy the crackdown and accused Majorca of trying to ‘kill’ Magaluf.

Restaurant owners have told how boozy tourists are ‘destroying their paradise’ and claimed the new rules do not go far enough. They said they want fewer drunk people and more families.

But the mayor of Calvia, the Majorcans region in which Magaluf sits, has urged Brits to keep coming to Magaluf.

‘My message is all the British are really welcome in Calvia, that is very important,’ Mayor Juan Antonio Amengual told MailOnline. ‘It’s not the same message you have heard in the other government.’
