Amanda Holden says she loves it when people talk about her risqué outfits and “tired old breasts” on Britain’s Got Talent.
The 48-year-old star told OK! Magazine she dresses to “feel confident” and sees her appearances on the ITV talent show as “the perfect opportunity to take risks” when it comes to her fashion choices.
She said: “I love it that people are still talking about my tired old breasts and I’m nearly 50.”
Holden’s choice of flesh-baring outfits have become a major talking point during the live Britain’s Got Talent broadcasts, with Ofcom receiving multiple complaints about her dresses.
The presenter, though, is not upset by the constant scandals.
She said: “I have fun on Britain’s Got Talent – it’s the perfect opportunity to take risks.
“Times have changed and I don’t feel anyone should feel pressure to dress for your age.
“It’s all about body positivity and feeling good.”
Holden added that her fashion choices are important to her expressing herself on air.
She said: “I treat clothing as armour so I can go out and face the world and battle each day.
“If you feel good in what you’re wearing then you’ll shine brightly. It really is as simple as that.”
Holden’s bold fashion sense was not the only controversy surrounding her during this year’s Britain’s Got Talent, with the show facing almost 200 complaints about her participation in a dangerous magic act.
Ofcom received 154 complaints related to the spooky stunt itself, in which Holden was confronted by ghostly figures, and 38 complaints around the presenter swearing before the 9pm watershed.

The regulator ultimately determined that ITV would not face action over the stunt.
An all-star series of the show, entitled Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions, is set to begin later this month, though the winner has already been leaked online.
