Indeed, one person defiantly tweeted: 'Just complained to OFCOM!'

'It makes me uncomfortable to see 5 grown women dancing half naked on my screen,' someone else tweeted.

Yet others pointed out that no-one was outraged two weeks before when group Try Star took to the stage, dripping wet and half-nude.
