Amanda Holden ‘sparks 235 Ofcom complaints’ over plunging navy gown

Amanda Holden has sparked Ofcom complaints once more from Britain’s Got Talent viewers, with 235 people contacting the company over her look in Saturday’s show. 

The Heart Breakfast presenter, 49, wowed in a showstopping metallic navy gown during the fourth semi-final, but at the time some fans questioned if she had suffered a wardrobe malfunction after they claimed to ‘see her nipples’.

According to a report from The Mirror on Monday, the regulator received 277 complaints about the programme, with the majority focusing on her racy ensemble which featured a plunging neckline and was boned to accentuate her cleavage.

Amanda’s gown featured a sweetheart neckline and was cinched around her svelte waist, teamed with a pair of sparkling silver barely-there heels.

In a snap shared to Instagram, Amanda showcased her toned pins in the chic outfit, which featured a perilously high thigh slit up the leg of the gown. 

However at the time, some fans claimed Amanda had suffered a nip slip in the look, and they took to Twitter to question if they’d seen more than they’d bargained for during the show.

One wrote on social media: ‘Is it me or Amanda’s nipples nearly hanging out of her top?’, while a second asked, ‘Are Amanda’s nipples on show?’

Another shared on Twitter, ‘Just me, or does Amanda’s dress make it look like her nipples are out?’, before adding: ‘To be clear… I’m not offended just commented on the obvious nipple shadow.’

Clearly shocked, one viewer wrote: ‘Is it me or can you see Amanda’s nipples?’ 

MailOnline has contacted Ofcom, as well as Amanda’s representatives and a Britain’s Got Talent spokesperson for comment.

This is not the first time Amanda’s ensembles have caused a stir, as last year her raunchy ensembles sparked hundreds of complaints from viewers who thought they were too revealing for a family show.

Amanda made an impression in thigh-skimming gown by Ziad Nakad, showing off a liberal amount of leg thanks to the asymmetric hemline.

While the blonde beauty had also risked a wardrobe malfunction in a cut-out number by Jennifer Clair.

The stunning jewel hued frock featured a cut-out at the bust, threatening to expose her cleavage, as well as a high-high split running up her right leg.

She then dared to bare in the revealing, spider web number which attracted the Ofcom complaints.

While the next night she revealed her ample cleavage in a plunging, midnight blue gown, adorned with white floral detail and sequins. 

Despite the controversy over her looks, Amanda told You magazine at the time that she was delighted her remarkable figure still attracts attention: ‘I love it that people are still talking about my tired old breasts and I’m nearly 50!’

She added: ‘No one talks about [BGT co-host] Alesha Dixon’s – she’s got great boobs by the way – and she’s eight years younger than me.

‘Age is totally irrelevant, thanks to people like J-Lo, who is 49 and just a sexy, hot woman who dresses for how she feels.’

Amanda’s wardrobe has led to some controversial moments in the past after a daring Julien Macdonald gown she wore during the semi-final of BGT three years ago attracted a staggering 663 Ofcom complaints. 

Ofcom said that while it recognised the dress ‘had potential to offend some viewers during what is a family show’ – the outfit ‘would not have exceeded most viewers’ expectations’.

And this wasn’t the first time risque outfit choices on Britain’s Got Talent caused fans to lodge official complaints.

In 2016, Ofcom again decided not to investigate the ITV show after outfits worn by Holden and fellow judge Alesha Dixon sparked 90 complaints from viewers.

Meanwhile Diversity’s Black Lives Matter inspired performance during the show’s first semi-final attracted 24,500 complaints to OfCom, who have since announced they will not investigate any further.

ITV has ‘stood with Diversity’ as they featured adverts in national newspapers in support of the controversial dance. 

ITV are believed to have spent around £260,000 on the newspaper ads with full-page monochrome pieces in The Metro costing £36,461 and £27,700 in The Mirror.

Alesha was one of many who praised ITV for standing by the dance troupe. The singer took to Instagram to share a snap of the advert and gushed over how ‘proud’ she was with them. 

In her caption, she wrote: ‘Well done @ITV for standing with Diversity! Proud of you! This image is in all of the national newspapers today.’

Ashley also shared his gratitude with ITV for standing by Diversity over their Black Lives Matter-inspired performance.

The poster showed a poignant black and white image of Ashley taking the knee alongside the words: ‘We are changed by what we see. Just as we are changed when we are seen. ITV stand with Diversity.’

Sharing a snap of the same advert, which shows him kneeling in black-and-white, he wrote: ‘This is what change looks like.

‘@ITV stand with @Diversity and we’ve never been prouder. This is in all the national papers today. Thank you again to everyone that has supported us.’
