Britain’s Got Talent: Ofcom receives 192 complaints over Amanda Holden SWEARING and The Haunting’s performance
Britain’s Got Talent has received 192 complaints over Monday’s episode after Amanda Holden accidentally swore on stage.
The 48 year old was left in tears as she apologised for accidentally saying “f**k” as she accompanied spooky magician The Haunting on stage.
154 viewers have complained that The Haunting’s act is “too scary”, while 38 complained about Amanda’s F-word slip-up.
Ofcom said: “We are assessing these complaints against our broadcasting rules, but are yet to decide whether or not to investigate.”
After The Haunting had reappeared and taken the place of "ghost" Florence, Amanda shouted “f**k” in her face, as she guided her towards the stage.
Visibly shaken by the trick, a trembling Amanda took her seat back alongside Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams.
Show hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly apologised for Amanda’s foul-mouth blunder as she composed herself to give the contestant feedback.
As her voice cracked, she addressed viewers: “I just really want to apologise if I… I know there’s kids watching. A massive apology. I can honestly say I feel terrified.
“It’s terrifying, amazing, thrilling. I wouldn’t want anyone to go through that. It was amazing.”
Viewers took to Twitter to discuss the moment, with one writing: “I was horrified by this act poor Amanda — am sure children will b too [sic] ."
A second chimed: “I would of said a lot worse than ‘F**k’ if I was @AmandaHolden. That was absolutely terrifying, you do so well to stick through all that Amanda! [sic].”
