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.
