Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon‘s ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ outfits received a whopping 683 complaints during three episodes this season, with Amanda at the centre of an online debate about whether she was dressed like a “stripper”. Seriously guys, it’s 2017.
Despite the uproar, Ofcom revealed yesterday that it won’t be investigating the show. While it recognised Amanda’s plunging gown at the semi-finals “had potential to offend some viewers during what is a family show,” it felt the programme was “appropriately scheduled” – starting at 7.30pm.
The broadcast regulator also stated that Amanda’s outfit “would not have exceeded most viewers’ expectations”, as the presenter is known to be a fan of uber-glamorous gowns.
We’re with Ofcom on this one – it’s not the dresses that are ‘inappropriate’, but people’s reaction. Because fashion is fun, and grown women starring on an evening TV show should be able to wear whatever the hell they want.
So to celebrate Amanda and Alesha’s stunning ‘BGT’ style, we’ve rounded up their most complained-about looks from the show. Haters, eat your heart out.
