Ofcom to investigate Britain's Got Talent 2012 over Beatrix Von Bourbon's audition

Britain's Got Talent 2012 - Beatrix Von Bourbon

Ofcom has confirmed that Britain's Got Talent 2012 will face an investigation over Beatrix Von Bourbon's audition.

27-year-old Beatrix performed a burlesque strip tease for the judges last month, performing to Michael Buble track Feeling Good.

The stunning performer stripped down to her pants, and a pair of nipple tassels, although the show's editors did superimpose some rather large stars to cover a lot more up!

Still, enough was seen for around 70 viewers to complain, and Ofcom confirmed this week it would be investigating whether the audition broke the broadcasting rules.

Ofcom said in a statement: "The viewers who complained to us said the burlesque performer went on before the 9pm watershed and that it was inappropriate scheduling as children would have been watching."

A spokesperson for ITV defended the audition after the initial complaints.

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

BGT auditions continue this Saturday on ITV1.
