Amanda Holden hits back over Ofcom complaints about her racy BGT outfits

Amanda Holden has hit back over Ofcom complaints that have been made against her racy Britain's Got Talent outfits.

The BGT judge, 52 is known for her dazzling and sometimes risqué outfits during the hit ITV talent show, particularly when it comes to the live shows. But for some, the outfits have proven to be a little too much for a primetime TV spot, as hundreds of Ofcom complaints have reportedly been made against Amanda's bold style.

The most recent series was hit with controversy over the judge's garments, one of which included a striking bright yellow latex and corset-style dress which she donned one evening for the live shows. But back in 2020, the presenter sparked a staggering 235 Ofcom complaints after wearing a plunging navy thigh-slit gown.

But with a passion for fashion and self love, the 52 year old has continued to hit back at the complaints made against her style and said she doesn't "lose any sleep over it". Talking about the Ofcom complaints Amanda told Tyla (an entertainment news website): "I dress for myself and I've always dressed for myself and I really enjoy fashion and I'm okay with it is all I'll say.

"I don't lose any sleep over it and I never set out to offend anybody. But I think these days you're unable to not offend – there's no way of winning. So you have to stay true to yourself and wear what you want."

She went on to jokingly point out what the 'problem' usually is and said: "It's just always a bit of side boob!", before humorously mentioning Simon Cowell's low-buttoned shirts.

This isn’t the first time the TV star has addressed her controversial outfits. Back in April 2023, Amanda spoke about the topic during a Q&A session with her fellow BGT judges.

"It's like the problem is everyone talking about my t*ts, while these two [Simon and Bruno] all the time…," she said. "[Simon's] shirt's always undone and [Bruno's] stripping off. No Ofcom complaints about me this year, please."

After making the comments, Amanda’s co-stars Simon Cowell and Bruno Tonioli came to her defence, and Bruno said: "I don’t understand this complaining, she’s a beautiful woman, they’re beautiful women, why, what is the problem?"

However, Heart radio presenter Amanda vowed to not let the negative comments from viewers get her down and added: "It's nothing, people have too much time on their hands."

The mum of two girls, Lexi, 17, and Hollie, 11, recently took on her latest venture as the new host of Sex: A Bonkers History on Sky History looking at sex habits from the Ancient Egyptians and the Tudors all the way to the 20th century alongside author Dan Jones.
