Most of Holly Willoughby’s outfits were complained about, including the dress for which the BBC was forced to apologize.


Holly Willoughby is best known for her fabulous wardrobe and every week she hosts Dancing on Ice, many of us can’t wait to see what she’s wearing.

The mother-of-three hosts the show with her This Morning co-host Phillip Schofield and always wears a stunning ensemble that flies off the shelves when seen on screen.

The 41-year-old knows exactly how to dress to flatter her figure and always posts a little sneak peek on her Instagram page before the show starts to let fans know where it all came from.

But not everyone is a fan of Holly’s fashion choices.

Some prudish viewers were so shocked to see her chest that they turned to broadcast regulator Ofcom to file an official complaint, something that was dismissed as nonsense, The Mirror writes.

But what dresses provoked such unfounded outrage? Let’s remember ourselves.

Last January, Holly was the subject of complaints when she donned a stunning floor-length pink dress.

Dismayed to see a woman’s body, 52 disgruntled viewers contacted Ofcom to share their distaste for the dress, which was embellished with crystals and feathers and featured a plunging neckline.

After the first episode aired on January 17, the broadcasting regulator confirmed that it had received 341 complaints about the ITV show, most related to Rufus Hound’s cutting remark about the government’s inability to feed starving schoolchildren.

Others were more concerned about Holly’s cleavage, with some claiming it was raunchy for a pre-Turning Point show.

“Why does Holly have to show her boobs every time? It’s a family entertainment show. I just don’t get it. I’d think a lot more of her if she dressed like a lady and covered them up,” one outraged viewer tweeted. .

“That dress is too sexy for a family show!” another furious.

Holly’s white dress caused a stir

In 2020, Holly looked ethereal in a white corset-style gown by luxury bridal designer Dana Harel.

The layered skirt of white tulle cascaded to the floor, and Holly added a splash of color to the look with her red lipstick.

Unsurprisingly, it was too scandalous for some viewers.

One commented: “The top looks too much like underwear, I’ve seen Holly in prettier dresses.”

“One of your worst outfits looks like underwear and you forgot the top layer,” another informed her.

The dress, designed by Joao Rolo Couture, featured silver sequins and, you guessed it, a plunging neckline.

Most of the viewers noted how good Holly looked, with one tweeting: “Exquisite as always.”

Another said it looked “amazing.”

But as usual, other viewers complained about the sight of Holly’s chest.

“Holly’s dress is quite distracting,” one user wrote.

Another ranted: “Is that really the kind of dress to wear on a family show? I hope you don’t fall off.”

Holly dared to get naked for The Voice finale, and the show supported her

The revealing dress Holly Willoughby wore to host The Voice finale in 2013 prompted 139 complaints.

And BBC bosses were forced to apologize if viewers found the intermittent cleavage number “inappropriate”, but supported the star.

The show, watched by 8.7 million fans, aired from 7:15 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., meaning most of the show aired before the 9:00 p.m. turning point.

During that time, broadcasters must avoid material deemed unsuitable for children.

A BBC spokeswoman said: “We are sorry if some viewers found Holly’s dress inappropriate.

“Holly is into fashion and we felt the dress she wore for The Voice UK live finale was glamorous and completely appropriate for the occasion.

“We don’t think it would have gone against audience expectations for a television show like this.”
