Another wrote: "The outfits the #pussycatdolls are wearing on #XFactorCelebrity are totally inappropriate for 8.15pm on a family show.

"Not good role models for girls. You don't have to take your clothes to be successful."

A third added: "My 8 year old daughter is a bit confused and asked ‘are they also wearing knickers’ vileee."

However, others defended the girl group.

Another tweeted: "Why would adult group needs to dress to be kid appropriate? They’re not a kid’s band."
