Being a TV personality often comes with many obligations along with the fame. But some people would just do anything to boost their fame even more and show off their body figure to the rest of the world. The 46-year-old English television presenter, actress, singer, and judge on ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent, Amanda Louise Holden, showed more skin than some people think she should have. Angry backlash followed after she appeared almost topless on last weekend’s show, wearing the most daring outfit ever seen on the show.
Amanda struggled to contain her impressive cleavage, and although she was impressed by her looks, social media didn’t agree. She apparently pissed off a lot of people. Ofcom said they had received 216 complaints. A spokesman said: “We will assess these complaints before deciding whether or not to investigate.”
The 46-year-old’s £11,250 Julien Macdonald dress caught 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

However, a few also point out the hypocrisy of the complaints, as Simon Cowell ‘flaunts his cleavage’ with the best of them – as certain media outlets would say. Simon obviously needs to learn how to button his shirt, too.
