Holly Willoughby, 37, wore a figure-hugging dress with mesh cut outs for the third ‘Dancing On Ice’ show last night – but some of her fans didn’t feel it was the right choice for the family show.
The presenter wowed in the the floor-length, Jenny Packham gown, paired with retro waves, red lipstick and smokey eyeshadow.
However, fans accused Holly of showing too much cleavage in her choice of gown, after she shared a picture of her look to her five million followers on Instagram.
One person wrote: “Boobs look squashed”, while another wrote: “Just a little to much boobige [sic] on show.”
Another person suggested Holly shouldn’t have worn the plunging gown on a television show which airs before the watershed (‘Dancing On ‘Ice’ starts at 6pm on ITV).
They wrote: “You shouldn’t be showing your boobs in front of the children.”
Holly’s look received similar comments over on Twitter.

However, Holly did receive some support for her look, with others praise the get-up.
One wrote: “Stunning lady just love this dress xx,” while another described the look as: “Pure vintage Hollywood glamour … absolutely beautiful!”.
Another person commented: “You were made for that dress.”
According to her Instagram account, she paired the look with earrings from Boodles and shoes by GINA.
‘Britain’s Got Talent’ presenter Amanda Holden faced similar criticism when she wore a plunging Julien Macdonald gown with an open back during the show’s semi-final in 2017. TV regulator Ofcom received some 90 complaints about the outfit from viewers, but the body maintained the clothing “did not raise issues” under its nudity rules.
