Amanda Holden's dress was the most complained about thing on British TV in 2017

It had a lot of people talking... and complaining.

Amanda Holden and her dress choice were the most controversial thing on UK television in 2017 according to complaints to Ofcom.

Holden left some viewers of the show angry with her dress choice during a live show of Britain's Got Talent back in June of this year.

She appeared as a judge on the show wearing a dress with a plunging neckline which seemed to cause offence to a number of people.

Within 48 hours of the show airing, 216 complaints were made about the dress (which cost £11,250) and in total in the three months since the show aired, 663 complaints were registered about it.

However,  Ofcom reviewed the episode and chose not to investigate the matter further. They said that Ms Holden's choice of attire "would not have exceeded most viewers expectations".

It received more complaints than the Comic Relief incident back in March when Russell Brand swore and Vic Reeves flashed a fake penis prior to the 9pm watershed.

In 2016, Ofcom received 90 complaints about the clothes worn by Holden and co-host Alesha Dixon during Britian's Got Talent.
