Despite a large number of complaints from viewers, broadcasting regulator Ofcom will not investigate the so-called “topless” dress that Amanda Holden wore during the Britain’s Got Talent final on 1st June.
While the regulator recognised that the dress “had potential to offend some viewers during what is a family show”, it ultimately ruled that the dress “would not have exceeded most viewers’ expectations”.
On the eve of the final, Amanda Holden posted a picture of herself sporting the dress on her Instagram feed with a quote from Coco Chanel which read: “It’s always better to be slightly underdressed’”.
Unfortunately, not everyone seems to agree with Ms Chanel. More than 650 people complained about the dress after Holden’s appearance on Britain’s Got Talent, and many also took to social media to air their grievances.
Seeing @AmandaHolden in that dress is like looking at my gran trying to be 'down with the kids'. Grow up Holden and act your age!
