Britain's Got Talent has had 3,000 complaints from viewers rejected by Ofcom.

Fans of the ITV competition contacted the broadcasting watchdog to complain about comedian Nabil Abdulrashid.

Thousands of disgruntled viewers complained following the grand final earlier this month after Nabil performed for his chance to win the 2020 competition, which attracted over 2,000 complaints.

His semi-final performance a week earlier also had almost 1,000 complaints.

The comic's routine routine tackled a range of issues from racism, politics and he even poked fun at the Ofcom complaints the ITV talent show had already received this year.

Following the decision not to investigate further, an Ofcom spokesperson said: "The comedian’s satirical take on his life experiences as a black Muslim was likely to have been within audience expectations."

Nabil's act came just weeks after Diversity's dance, which was inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, sparked almost 25,000 complaints, which were also cleared by Ofcom.

The dance, during the first Britain's Got Talent 2020 semi-final on Saturday September 5, portrayed the death of George Floyd in America and the protests that followed.

It featured dancer and BGT judge Ashley Banjo having his neck knelt on by a white police officer and was accused by viewers of taking a political stance during a family entertainment show.

The final aired earlier this month

But the TV watchdog said the programme did not raise any issues to warrant an investigation.

Part of Ofcom's statement at the time read: "Diversity's performance referred to challenging and potentially controversial subjects, and in our view, its central message was a call for social cohesion and unity."

Britain's Got Talent 2020 was won by Jon Courtenay, from Greater Manchester.

He bagged £250,000 and spot at the Royal Variety Performance.
