Amanda Holden’s Britain’s Got Talent outfits will not be investigated by the TV watchdog Ofcom.
However, they did reveal the looks “would not have exceeded most viewers’ expectations”, after deciding against an investigation.
Ofcom received 683 complaints mostly about Holden’s wardrobe over the course of three programmes.
Alesha Dixon’s looks also raised a handful of complaints.
During the live shows, Holden wore a low-cut gown with a cut-out panel that reached down to the small of her back.
Fans online were not impressed, with one saying: “So Amanda is effectively topless on Britain’s Got Talent.”
With another adding: “What the hell is Amanda wearing on BGT, totally NOT suitable”
Ofcom said that the outfits had the “potential” to cause offence on a family show, but that the ITV programme was “appropriately scheduled”.
“We carefully assessed complaints that dresses worn by judges were inappropriate for a pre-watershed audience,” a spokesman for the regulator said.
“We recognise that the dresses had potential to offend some viewers during what is a family show.
“However, while some outfits were revealing, we considered it was appropriately scheduled and would not have exceeded most viewers’ expectations.”
Ofcom also dismissed 27 complaints over fellow judge David Walliams, 45, dropping his trousers in front of Simon Cowell, 57.
“We assessed some complaints that David Walliams’ behaviour was unsuitable for a pre-watershed audience,” a spokesman said.
“However, while his actions could be seen as offensive to some, we found they were justified by the light-hearted, comedic context.”
The ITV series was won by pianist Tokio Myers, with 8.2 million viewers watching and a peak of 10.2 million.
Britain’s Got Talent returns to ITV next year.
