Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden have been cleared by TV watchdog Ofcom over their 'sexy outfits'.

For the second year in a row viewers complained over the girls' supposedly saucy numbers from the live shows.

In all, 20 viewers actually bothered to write in to voice their objection to what Amanda and Alesha were wearing.

However Ofcom have this week rejected the complaints in their latest bulletin.

A spokesperson for the TV regulator said today: "We assessed a number of complaints about the suitability of clothing worn by two female judges before the watershed, but won't be taking the matter forward for investigation.

"The dresses worn by the judges did not raise issues under our rules on nudity, and the judges were not portrayed in a sexualised way."

Ofcom dismissed a further 41 complaints about the BGT live semi-finals which ranged from claims of discrimination to dangerous behaviour.

We reckon we could probably guess what act that was about...

Meanwhile, Ofcom has also revealed it will not be investigating claims of animal neglect after 16 people complained about the use of puppies in a segment on ITV2 spin-off show More Talent.

A spokesperson for BGT said at the time: "We apologised on air last night during the show if anyone was upset by the item. The dogs were provided by a reputable, licensed animal agency and were under the care of their handlers at all times.

"The dogs were only brought in to the studio for a short time before they were on air."
