The BGT judge came under fire from viewers, who branded the blue gown that she wore during one of the semi-finals ‘inappropriate’ and ‘indecent’.
Some viewers even claimed at the time that they could see Amanda’s ‘nipples’.
TV watchdog Ofcom confirmed that they received 277 complaints in total from the show, which aired on Saturday, September 26 – with 235 of them being about Amanda’s dress.
Speaking about the complaints, Piers told Amanda on her Heart Radio show today that in fact, he was one of the people who contacted Ofcom.
I was one of those people who complained to Ofcom about your dress,’ he explained.
‘But I only complained because I thought that you were wearing too many clothes.’
Amanda also responded to the complaints at the time, where she made light of the situation.
‘Mmmm really? Who has nipples this close to their cleavage? FYI a bones corset dented the girls all night,’ she penned.
The BGT finale was also hit with 2,000 Ofcom complaints, most of which were aimed at Nabil Abdulrashid’s Black Lives Matter-inspired performance.
During his routine, the comedian poked fun at the complaints he had previously received following his semi-finalist act, which pushed boundaries in terms of race and religion.
