Amanda Holden has managed to secure Britain’s Got Talent a top spot as the most complained about TV show of the decade.
This series alone racked up a whopping 28,000 Ofcom complaints after viewers were left outraged at the judge’s racy frocks and Diversity ‘s Black Lives Matter-inspired routine.
The dance group’s routine triggered thousands of complaints alone, making it the most moaned-about moment of the series by far.
That, teamed with Amanda’s outfit choices as well as some controversial auditions secured BGT a spot in the history books.
The hit ITV series – fronted by Ant and Dec – has received a total of 27,898 official Ofcom complaints this year.
The astounding number managed to top the 2018 series of Celebrity Big Brother, which previously held the top spot for most complained about TV show with a whopping 25,327 complaints.
Diversity’s compelling routine – which racked up more than 24,000 complaints – saw the group reenact the heartless murder of George Floyd earlier this year.
The tragic event sparked the massive Black Lives Matter movement and has since been a turning point for organisations across the globe.
Diversity frontman Ashley Banjo had a police officer kneel on his neck during the routine, in the same way Mr Floyd was killed.
Protests swept the globe demanding justice and racial equality after Mr Floyd, 46, died after being arrested by police officers outside a shop in Minneapolis, Minnestota.
Footage of the arrest, showing a white officer kneeling on Mr Floyd’s neck, went viral.
Diversity’s BGT performance was inspired by Mr Floyd’s death and the Black Lives Matter protests that followed, as well as other major news events of the last nine months.
The ITV talent show was quick to defend the routine amid the backlash and said the program had always been promoted diversity and inclusivity.
Elsewhere, Amanda just can’t seem to catch a break about her outfit choices as she triggered 136 Ofcom complaints in just one night over her latest jaw-dropping gown, which gave a glimpse of her lace corset.
Head judge Amanda made a defiant statement as she stepped out to the stage in another revealing gown just a week after some fans of the show complained that they could see her n****es as she ‘spilled out’ of her sweetheart neckline.
Her shiny blue frock raised a lot of eyebrows among viewers, as she received 235 Ofcom complaints over the dress after viewers were convinced they could see her n****es.
Refusing to back down, Amanda donned a stunning slinky velvet number that was slashed to the thigh and gave the appearance of being peeled back to reveal black lingerie.
Other viewers complained to Ofcom about some of the material in comedian Nabil’s routine.
The funnyman covered a wide variety of topics during his time on stage from racism to fat phobia.
The regulator reported that 733 viewers got in touch to vent abut comedian Nabil Abdulrashid’s jokes about race.
