But he’s now fled after it was discovered he had served eight years in prison for a sickening sex attack.
The entertainer, who appeared on TV talent show Popstars: The Rivals had tried to subtly change his name to avoid detection and was taking bookings under the name of Richerd Agassi.
But an incensed father did some research and discovered his dark past after rumours began to surface in the Spanish holiday destination.
Posters were then put up around the resort, and spread online, of the singer impersonating Robbie Williams under the title Let Me Entertain You with a warning note attached.
The message included: “This is the convicted rapist in Benidorm. CONVICTED…how has he got work…do not go and see this man…if he works in a bar where you do…then refuse to work with him !!”
Pressure grew on resort owners not to employ the singer for fear of a boycott or worse from an angry mob.

News that Agacy served eight years for rape spread quickly in community Facebook groups
A woman claiming to be a victim of Agacy’s joined the campaign – with members insisting they will be in touch with ex-pats in Majorca, and other popular destinations for Brits, to ensure he doesn’t work there.
Agacy’s Facebook page features a video of him appearing in the ITV show in 2002 when he reached the final 24.
It also claimed he starred on Michael Barrymore’s My Kind of Music.
But in 2008 he appeared in court charged with rape after posing as a taxi driver to pick up his victim with another man.
Agacy and his accomplice Bhattin Elagoz were both found guilty of the 2002 sex attack at Croydon Crown Court.
After his crime was revealed Agacy whined to one Brit bar owner: “I’m sorry but I can’t sing in your bar any more or any bar have to go back to England cos there’s people here that don’t want me here just because of my past 15 years ago when I went to prison why can’t people just leave me alone it’s not fair I served 5 and a half years in jail back in 2002 and people still give me hard time but thanks for everything.”

When approached by The Sun Agacy said: “Listen, my offence was nearly 15 years ago in 2002 so it’s in the past.
“Most people don’t care as it was 15 years ago you just get a small jealous minority people who try to cause s*** for me, mainly entertainers because they secretly know I can get more work than them.
“I was 20 and the woman was 28 at the time so people need to mind their own bloody business.”
