The brand new series of Dancing On Ice has already been hit with Ofcom complaints thanks to Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu’s raunchy performance and risqué outfit.

The 2023 edition launched on Sunday evening, with presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield welcoming the first six celebrities to the rink.

Ekin-Su was among the celebrities to make their debut, and joined the likes of Joey Essex, Michelle Heaton, Nile Wilson, Patsy Palmer, and Siva Kaneswaran.

The Love Island star, 28, went all out for her inaugural routine, which was choreographed to Britney Spears’ hit Toxic, and even recreated her iconic crawling scene from the reality show on the ice.

Naturally, Ekin-Su’s number was full of sass, and she completed it all while dressed in a sparkly silver leotard.

Unfortunately, though, her performance wasn’t a hit with viewers at home despite scoring an admiral 21.5 points from the judges, and she will skate again next week in a bid to save herself from elimination after landing in the bottom.

If that wasn’t enough, television watchdog Ofcom has now also confirmed it received 112 complaints relating to Ekin-Su’s performance and outfit.

But we’re sure this won’t deter Ekin-Su from giving it her all on Sunday.

The next episode of Dancing On Ice will welcome to the ice ex-footballer John Fashanu and professional Alexandra Schauman; Coronation Street actress Mollie Gallagher and professional Sylvain Longchambon and comedian Darren Harriott and professional Tippy Packard.

What is Ofcom and what does it cover?

Ofcom is the regulator for the communications services that we use and rely on each day.

The watchdog makes sure people get the best from their broadband, home phone and mobile services, as well as keeping an eye on TV and radio.

Ofcom deals with most content on television, radio and video-on-demand services, including the BBC. However, if your complaint is about something you saw or heard in a BBC programme, you may need to complain to the BBC first.

Its rules for television and radio programmes are set out in the Broadcasting Code.

The rules in the Broadcasting Code also apply to the BBC iPlayer.

This Broadcasting Code is the rule book that broadcasters have to follow and it covers a number of areas, including; protecting the under-18s, protecting audiences from harmful and/or offensive material and ensuring that news, in whatever form, is reported with due accuracy and presented with due impartiality.

Audiences can complain to Ofcom if they believe a breach of the Broadcasting Code has been made.

Every time Ofcom receives a complaint from a viewer or listener, they assess it to see if it needs further investigation.

If Ofcom decide to investigate, they will include the case in a list of new investigations, published in the Broadcast and On Demand Bulletin.

An investigation is a formal process which can take some time depending on the complexity of the issues involved.

Ofcom can also launch investigations in the absence of a complaint from a viewer or listener.
