Britain's Got Talent 2012: Beatrix Von Bourbon's audition attracts complaints

Britain's Got Talent 2012 - Beatrix Von Bourbon

Britain's Got Talent 2012 star Beatrix Von Bourbon has seen 54 complaints to telly watchdog Ofcom over her performance.

The burlesque dancer appeared on Saturday night's latest audition show, starting her routine dressed in a red cabin crew uniform. Performing to Michael Buble hit Feeling Good however, Beatrix's routine saw her strip down to just a pair of gold high heels and nipple tassels!

Ofcom are to launch an investigation into the audition, after some complained it was "inappropriate" to be aired before the 9PM watershed.

The TV watchdog confirmed it had received 54 complaints, and last night an Ofcom spokesman said: “We are currently assessing the complaints.”

A spokeswoman for ITV however insisted that the performance was fine to be aired.

They said: “Beatrix’s stylised burlesque performance was carefully edited to ensure it was suitable.”

Britain's Got Talent 2012 continues this Saturday night on ITV1.
