BGT judge Bruno Tonioli has hit out at viewer complaints over Amanda Holden ahead of this year’s series.

Amanda, 52, has often become subject to Ofcom complaints during the show over the years due to her risqué looks.

However, her new co-star Bruno has defended her against the complaints and asked what “the problem is”.

Speaking to Entertainment Daily! and other press in a Q&A, the judges discussed the outfits on this year’s series. Amanda said: “We’re leaving the sequins to Bruno this year. Everyone talks about my [bleep]. No Ofcom about me this year please!”

Bruno, 67, then said: “I don’t understand this complaining. This is a beautiful woman. They’re beautiful women. What is the problem?”

Amanda added: “It’s people with too much time on their hands, Bruno.”

What has Amanda said previously about the complaints?

This isn’t the first time Amanda has spoken about the complaints from viewers over her outfits. Speaking to OK! magazine in 2019, Amanda said: “I love it that people are still talking about my tired old breasts and I’m nearly 50!”

I don’t understand this complaining. This is a beautiful woman. What is the problem?

Meanwhile, back in 2017, Amanda hit out at critics once again. She told The Sun at the time: “I can’t wait to wear my dresses. They are very flattering, very feminine and a few are… what you would expect. None of them have been worn before, which is the main thing for me.”

Amanda added: “I like to know no one six foot tall and skinny has worn it on a red carpet before. That’s why we wait for Cannes to finish before we start choosing.

“Will people be complaining to Ofcom? I hope so, I really do. I haven’t done my job if they aren’t.”
