Ofcom received 216 complaints about the 46-year-old judge's racy outfit on the live semi-finals of the show during the week but David joked that their co-judge Simon Cowell has even lower necklines.

He tweeted: "What's the big deal with @AmandaHolden 's dress on @BGT ? @SimonCowell has been wearing low-cut tops that show off his moobs for years (sic)."

Amanda has joked about her controversial outfit choices before, saying: "Will people be complaining to Ofcom? I hope so, I really do. I haven't done my job if they aren't."

And speaking about the complaints, Ofcom said: "We will assess these complaints before deciding whether or not to investigate."

Meanwhile, Amanda recently joked that David uses 'Britain's Got Talent' to find potential girlfriends.

The 45-year-old actor and comedian split from his model wife Lara Stone in 2015 and Amanda admitted she often sees him scouting out women at auditions.

She said: "He's a healthy man, let's just say that.

"He becomes a bit like Terminator when we're in the theatres. It's like he puts on his googles and has a scan of the audience.

"I know exactly what he's looking for out there, but I won't let him down by saying it here."
