Amanda Holden's daring Britain's Got Talent dress will not be investigated by Ofcom, it has been confirmed. The BGT judge received hundreds of complaints due to her sartorial choice, which many viewers deemed "inappropriate". The 46-year-old was preened to perfection in a khaki Julien Macdonald gown, which was heavily embellished and featured a dangerously low-cut neckline, slashed down to the navel during one of the live finals at the start of the month.

A spokesperson from Ofcom told HELLO! Online: "We carefully assessed complaints that dresses worn by judges were inappropriate for a pre-watershed audience. We recognise that the dresses had potential to offend some viewers during what is a family show. However, while some outfits were revealing, we considered it was appropriately scheduled and would not have exceeded most viewers’ expectations." It has since been revealed there were 683 complaints spread over the course of three programmes. The majority of complaints related to Amanda's outfit, while others were about fellow judge Alesha Dixon's number.

Amanda's decision to wear such a jaw-dropping outfit comes after she confessed she would be disappointed if her wardrobe failed to cause a stir. "I can't wait to wear my dresses," she recently told The Sun. "They are very flattering, very feminine and a few are … what you would expect. Will people be complaining to Ofcom? I hope so. I haven't done my job if they aren't!" Last year, Amanda and Alesha received 19 complaints thanks to their daring ensembles during the ITV show's live run. At the time Ofcom said they didn't warrant a full investigation.
