Amanda Holden’s Risky Britain’s Got Talent Dress Sparks 235 Ofcom Complaints


Amanda Holden’s dress on Britain’s Got Talent last weekend drew 235 Ofcom complaints. The 49-year-old singer-actress came under social media criticism over the weekend for a low-cut dress that saw some viewers suggest they could see her nipples.

The last semi-final on Saturday night drew 277 complaints from Ofcom, including 235 regarding Amanda’s dress choice.

The low-cut blue dress has certainly caused a stir as Amanda becomes the latest judge to be criticized.

The complaints come after fellow judges Ashley Banjo and Alesha Dixon bore the brunt of the wrath of parts of the show’s audience over their outspoken support for the Black Lives Matter movement – including with Alesha’s choice of wear a BLM necklace.

Amanda Holden opted for a bold, shiny dress for the Saturday night show on September 26

ITV continued to support the recent performance of the Diversity Dance Troupe show, choreographed by Ashley, which portrayed scenes surrounding the death of African American George Floyd in the United States and stood up against the racism, but continued to accumulate 24,500 Ofcom complaints.

Amanda herself also spoke out in favor of Diversity’s performance last week when she spoke to The Huffington Post.

She said: “I would say we have to remember that it was a performance that reflected the whole year, not just the American tragedy of George Floyd.

“He was celebrating the NHS and our sense of community, which is ironic after receiving these complaints. “

Fans were convinced they saw Amanda Holden’s nipples through her dress on BGT on Saturday, which has now sparked 235 Ofcom complaints

Diversity told about some of the biggest news events of the year for a routine broadcast during the first BGT semi-final on September 5

The judge also said that Alesha didn’t need her to defend her but that she would if her friend needed her.

She insisted, “Alesha, believe me, is tough and can fight too.

“She doesn’t need me, but she holds me there if she needs me… I have a mouthguard and a hot towel ready.”

When it comes to her bold fashion choices, Amanda also explained her decisions to Hello magazine last year.

Alesha Dixon has resisted criticism of her support for BLM

She explained, “I can’t go out in my pajamas or swing without a whiplash.

“To preserve my own sense of dignity, I always try to look good.

“My nan Ethel used to say to me: ‘Never let your husband see you without lipstick.’

“I pay a lot of attention to my appearance when I go out – which is just as good as having my picture taken every day. ”

Britain’s Got Talent continues Saturday night on ITV.
