In the current series, which ends on Saturday, 27,898 people have filed official complaints with the media authority, with the amount ahead of the previously most criticized show, Celebrity Big Brother.

On Channel 5's now-defunct reality show, 25,372 people protested Ofcom after actress Roxanne Pallett wrongly accused actor Ryan Thomas of maliciously beating her.

Diversity's Black Lives Matter-inspired performance in the show's first semi-final drew 24,500 complaints to Ofcom.

At the performance, group leader Ashley Banjo had a white knee on the neck, indicating the death of the black man George Floyd earlier this year.

The Heart FM presenter took to Instagram to end fans' claims that she "flashed" her nipples in her deep blue thigh-slit dress, which featured a plunging neckline.

Despite the excitement of the past week, a defiant Amanda dared to bare again on Saturday in her lightning-fast ensemble, which had a dangerously high gap in the legs that showed her sensational figure.

Some viewers were shocked by Amanda's preferred outfit for the show and went on Twitter to complain about how inappropriate they found it to be.

One fan said, "When did it become acceptable to show your underwear on a Amanda Holden family show?"

While another complained, & # 39; Does anyone think a large part of Amanda's dress is missing? Don't you realize that kids are watching this show? & # 39;

Meanwhile, candidate Nabil attracted even more complaints about his "nervous and courageous" act against racism, which came just weeks after the Diversity's Black Live Matters-inspired dance and sparked nearly 25,000 complaints.

The 35-year-old funny wowed the judges with his act, in which he joked about racism. At one point he joked about his "white liberal left friend" telling him to "forget he is black" so that he would not be exposed to racism.

During his performance, he also quipped, “The people watching will think that one of the guys from Black Lives Matter is joking about stop and search.

“No, it's a joke about being fat. Big Nastie and I are both fat, we both happen to be black too. Don't throw the racing card guys in! & # 39;

The judges were impressed with his performance. Alesha Dixon, 40, commented, “I really enjoyed it. The reason I picked you as my golden buzzer is because you are pretty nervous that you are different and that you are that guy.

"It's okay to be a little uncomfortable with comedy. I think that's what comedy is about, and I think you are very brave to deal with the issue of racism, which is very poignant right now."

She continued, "I think we all need to learn to laugh a little more and have fun, so well done it was great."

Ashley Banjo, who recently admitted that he and his colleagues at Diversity were exposed to racial abuse after appearing in the show's first semifinal, called Nabil's Act "legendary".

After being voted into the final, Nabil was emotional, claiming he was glad he made it because it "meant a lot" as he represented a lot of people.

Gushing: Alesha said, "It's okay to be a little uncomfortable with comedy. I think that's what comedy is about, and I think you are very brave to deal with the issue of racism, very poignant."
