Amanda Holden Facing Even More Ofcom Complaints

Amanda Holden Facing Even More Ofcom Complaints

For the second night in a row, Amanda Holden has sparked Ofcom complaints for her dress choice. On Wednesday night, she wore a spiderweb dress that proved controversial for outraged Britain's Got Talent viewers who felt the need to contact Ofcom - 34 of them, to be exact.

Last night, the BGT judge opted for a gorgeous black Saiid Kobeisy dress that slightly showed off her cleavage, causing a further 14 complaints to be sent to the communication regulator.

Ofcom complainants felt that Amanda's dress was "too rude for a family show", prompting investigation.

A statement given to the tabloid by Ofcom said: "We are assessing these complaints against our broadcasting rules, but are yet to decide whether or not to investigate."

Speaking to The Sun about Wednesday's controversy, Holden said: "My t*ts seem to become the show's biggest talking point every year.

"We've had plenty of complaints apparently, but none from home, let me tell you."


Amanda, who has regularly caused a stir for having boobs on TV, continued: "When I wore the spider's web dress this week I actually wore a nipple cover, and for me that was a first. I was thinking that it's a family show and people talk about my boobs every year, so I thought I would wear a nipple cover."


On Twitter, one person said: "#amandaholden #BGT what is Amanda wearing does she know this is a family show !! Too much Amanda".

Another said: "Not sure about Amanda's dress tonight...risky...#BGT" While another stepped in to say: "Amanda is brave wearing that dress #BGT".


Some people took it more lightly: "Amanda's dress looks like Spiderman had a happy accident on her boob #BGT". Said one.

This isn't the first time Amanda Holden's outfit choices have sparked complaints, so it's entirely possible she knows she's being controversial, but just doesn't mind all that much. Fair enough.
