Complaints against the Britain's Got Talent performance have increased steadily since the one-off show aired on September 5.

The performance is close to overtaking the 25,237 complaints raised over Roxanne Pallett's 'punch-gate' scandal on CelebrityBig Brother in 2018.

Ashley and the Diversity troupe dedicated their performance to the Black Lives Matter movement and the show featured scenes where a police officer kneeled on the dancer.
