Amanda Holden has pissed off a lot people.
Is it because she ironically judges a talent show? No, it’s because of what she wears while doing it.
On last night’s episode of Britain’s Got Talent the ITV personality wore a dress which didn’t leave a lot to the imagination, just a few days after joking ‘Will people be complaining to Ofcom? I hope so, I really do.’
Be careful what you wish for Amanda.

As reported by The Telegraph more than 200 complaints were registered with Ofcom.
And the 46-year-old’s £11,250 Julien Macdonald dress was always going to catch Twitter’s attention:

A family show, kids watch. Tell Amanda Holden to dress better and not look like she's walking the streets later. #BritainsGotTalent

The social media frenzy even had people tuning in specifically for the dress alone!
Twitter, I despair (of myself). Because of you, I'm actually turning on my tv just to see exactly what Amanda Holden is wearing ?

A few did point out the hypocrisy of the complaints though, as Simon Cowell ‘flaunts his cleavage’ with the best of them – as certain media outlets would say.
So while we’re at it, could someone please teach Simon the art of buttoning a shirt too…

Well, she’s probably guaranteed a few more viewers for the final. Shrewd move Amanda, shrewd move.
