Good Morning Britain has been named as 2017’s most complained about TV programme after an episode featuring a “gay conversion therapist” received 1,142 Ofcom complaints.
The Ofcom list of the top complained about shows featured I’m A Celeb, Benidorm and the ITV morning show.
An Ofcom spokesperson said: “To help us protect standards on television, we always assess every complaint we receive from viewers.
In 2017 we have investigated 187 programmes, and found 97 of these in breach of our broadcasting rules.”
Also making the list was Britain’s Got Talent after judge Amanda Holden provoked outrage from viewers for her choice of outfit.
The TV personality wore a dress with a plunging neckline on the ITV talent contest which was deemed inappropriate by some, due to the programme’s younger audience.
Surprisingly Comic Relief 2017 also received 339 complaints. Controversial comedian Russell Brand uttered the F-word before the watershed and former Shooting Stars presenter Vic Reeves upset viewers for flashing a fake penis at TV presenter Susanna Reid.
I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! also gained 243 complaints after a bullying row exploded.
Actor Jamie Lomas and Wise were seen making digs at radio presenter Lee following the latter’s failure to complete a Bushtucker trial, with viewers feeling it was unfair.
Comedy Benidorm received 137 complaints following offensive comments towards a character with a cleft lip.
Character Joyce Temple-Savage said of Danny Tetley “[he has]a voice like a 13-year-old girl and a face like a dropped pie”.
