LONDON: Amanda Holden is back on our screens for another series of Britain’s Got Talent – and she has already vowed to set the Ofcom complaints line on fire as she prepares to take part in the upcoming live semi-finals.
Amanda, 46, has vowed to set the Ofcom complaints line – the regulatory body for TV – alight, having already garnered raised eyebrows from the likes of Eamon Holmes and Ruth Langsford, and she’s admitted that she doesn’t think she had ‘done my job’ if people aren’t complaining.
Last year’s BGT final saw 90 complaints regarding Alesha Dixon and Amanda’s dress choices sent to the regulator Ofcom – and 200 sent to ITV. She told: ‘I can’t wait to wear my dresses. They are very flattering, very feminine and a few are… what you would expect.’
‘None of them have been worn before, which is the main thing for me,’ she continued. ‘I like to know no one six foot tall and skinny has worn it on a red carpet before. That’s why we wait for Cannes to finish before we start choosing.
‘Will people be complaining to Ofcom? I hope so, I really do. I haven’t done my job if they aren’t,’ she revealed. The new comment follows Amanda’s clothes being deemed ‘suitable’ by the regulatory body in 2016, after they received complaints about the fashion choices of the two judges during the show.
Amanda, who appears alongside judges Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams is currently celebrating her tenth year as a judge on the show.
