30 people have complained to telly watchdog Ofcom over Keri Graham's audition on Britain's Got Talent 2013 at the weekend.

Clearly in need of some more in life, the people moaned that Keri's 'chair dancing' audition shouldn't have aired before the 9PM watershed.

13 million viewers watched Keri's chair exercise routine, which ended up with Simon Cowell on stage in the chair as Keri and David Walliams danced around him.

A spokesperson for Ofcom commented: "We've had complaints in which we're currently assessing but not investigating."

Keri herself defended her act, and blamed Simon and David for 'lowering the tone' with their on stage gimmicks.

She told the Daily Mail today: "My act was actually more about strength and balance, using my core strength. It was a hard routine and trying to make it flow and sexy.

"But then the tone got lowered when Simon got on stage."

A spokesperson for ITV said of the complaints yesterday: "In its seventh series, Britain’s Got Talent celebrates variety and showcases a wide range of different acts."

They added: "Mindful of our family audience, the performance was carefully edited to ensure it was suitably inexplicit."

The Britain's Got Talent 2013 auditions continue next weekend on ITV1.
