Was Amanda Holden’s Britain’s Got Talent Dress Really ‘Inappropriate’?

The stunning judge was working a plunging and backless number on last night's show

Is it just us, or is Amanda Holden looking more amazing every year on Britain’s Got Talent?

The 46-year-old really outdid herself last night, working a super-plunging Julien Macdonald gown. The bejewelled khaki piece featured a cut-out back and a sexy thigh slit, as well as intricate bead detailing.

She’d paired the design with dramatic smoky eyes, mocha-coloured lips and fierce poker-straight locks.

Amanda clearly felt great in the dress, captioning a photo on Instagram: ‘Flattered to be wearing @julienmacdonald for @Bgt Show 4! Shoes @jimmychoo Jewels @hsternofficial πŸ’š Styling @angiesmithstyle [sic].’

She added: ‘Thank you to Team Mandy for my favourite hair and makeup look so far πŸ’šπŸ’š @itsdash @karindarnell @angiesmithstyle.’

And of course, fans were quick to compliment the glamorous ensemble. Comments included: ‘Absolutely stunning!!’ and: ‘Wow you look amazing @noholdenback xx [sic].’

But unfortunately for the mum-of-two, some felt her look was a little too risquΓ© for a pre-watershed show.

One message read: ‘Awful dress it’s a family show for gods sake, funny coz the camera only concentred on her from the neck up so they must have realised it was totally inappropriate πŸ˜‚ [sic].’

Another wrote: ‘You look stunning but I don’t really think this is appropriate for a family show, it is possible to look nice and still be covered up abit! [sic].’

Not everyone was impressed with Amanda Holden’s plunging gown

And it wasn’t just viewers who had a thing or two to say. As Amanda made her way onto the stage, host Ant McPartlin exclaimed: ‘Look at what Amanda’s wearing… what Amanda isn’t wearing!’

Her co-judge David Walliams later told female choir Angelicus Celtis: ‘You’re really classy, none of you are wearing a really inappropriate low-cut top!’

It’s since been reported that Ofcom are set to investigate, after receiving over 200 complaints.
