Britain’s Got Talent: Complaints rise to 10,000 for Diversity performance

More than 10,000 people have complained to media watchdog Ofcom about Saturday’s Britain’s Got Talent, which featured a Black Lives Matters-inspired routine by dance troupe Diversity.

The dance saw Ashley Banjo being knelt on by a police officer, a reference to George Floyd’s death in police custody.

Brother Jordan said on Wednesday that the response was “sad, genuinely”.

ITV said the performance opened up “important topics of conversation” and “was compiled for a family audience”.

The number of complaints about the episode has shot up from 1,121 on Tuesday to 10,267 on Thursday. Ofcom said “almost all” relate to Diversity.

Ashley Banjo has explained that the group had wanted to use the routine to “express how the events of this year have made us feel”.

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
