BGT ‘could face Ofcom investigation over Amanda Holden’s dress’

It's a family show, Amanda!

Britain’s Got Talent could face an investigation by TV regulators Ofcom after viewers complained about Amanda Holden’s revealing dress.

As Ent Daily reported, the 48 year old wore a floor-length Nicolas Jebran nude gown with sheer panelling and only an embroidered spider’s web covering her modesty.

After she made her entrance in the dress, one viewer tweeted: “What is it with Amanda Holden and flaunting as much of her chest that’s allowed before the watershed?”

Some viewers took their complaints one step further, reporting the fact that the star had worn a “topless” dress on a “family show” to Ofcom.

The Sun reports that a total of 22 complaints were received about last night’s show, with nine of those being about Amanda’s dress.

In a statement, the regulators said: “We are assessing these complaints against our broadcasting rules, but are yet to decide whether or not to investigate.”
