AMANDA Holden has brushed off critics who slammed her for wearing skimpy outfits on this year’s Britain’s Got Talent.
The presenter, 48, who recently began hosting Heart Radio Breakfast, insists she “loves” people talking about her “tired old breasts,” despite receiving Ofcom complaints for a number of her outfits in May.

Amanda caused a stir with viewers of the ITV competition show after opting for a number of risque outfits, including a floor length sheer nude gown.
But it’s clear the mum-of-two isn’t bothered by the comments, revealing she dresses to “feel confident”.
She told OK! magazine: “I love it that people are still talking about my tired old breasts and I’m nearly 50!
“I try not to think about age anymore when I’m dressing.

“My children don’t bat an eyelid at what I wear and love borrowing my clothes.”
Amanda showed off her toned figure in a number of sexy outfit during the last week of the show.
And while some viewers believed the mum-of-two dazzled in the frocks, others were left unimpressed with her outfits choices as they got in touch with the broadcasting agency.
Ofcom received 22 complaints during the semi-final and almost half of those – nine in total – were about Amanda’s dress.

Despite the drama, the TV host admits the family show is the “perfect opportunity” to push boundaries.
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.”

She added: “I dress for myself, nobody else. I love looking at what other people are wearing for inspiration, but I know what works for me.”
This isn’t the first time Amanda has been in trouble with Ofcom.
Last month, the star was cleared after saying “f***”live during a creepy magic act on the show.

The incident, which received 56 complaints, occurred when she was led on stage by The Haunting as part of a performance.
As soon as the act was over host Ant McPartlin, 43, apologised for the bad language.
Ofcom said it took into consideration that it was a live broadcast and was a “spontaneous reaction” from Amanda as well as the apologies that followed.
