Dancing on Ice had nearly 350 complaints registered about it to broadcasting regulator Ofcom – with many of those about Holly Willoughby's dress.

The show was back on ITV on Sunday 17 January and not everyone was delighted by its return.

Ofcom received 341 complaints following the show, with many angry at Rufus Hound's political remark about the government's failure to feed school children.

But some complaints were filed against presenter Holly after she wore a dress with a plunging neckline.

Holly's pink dress with crystals and feathers wowed many – but it failed to impress others, who went to the regulator to make their feelings known.

A spokesperson said: "Most of the 341 complaints were about Rufus Hound's comments about the government.

"We also received complaints about Holly's dress, and the set-up of the programme given Corona rules."

Holly's stunning gown proved too racy for some viewers who took to twitter to have a moan about the This Morning host.

Some people wanted her to cover up and others reminded the star that the 6pm start time was well before the watershed.

Thousand applauded comedian Rufus for his cutting comments about the handling of the free school meals campaign.

He took the chance to take a stab at the government for their handling of the situation.

The funnyman was asked about his crazy routine by co-host Phillip Schofield having been handed a free pass for week one.

"I've spent most of this year not emotionally stable because the world does not make sense and this does not make more sense of it," Rufus said.

"We live in a world where the people we elect don’t want to feed hungry children, this is the least mad thing that has happened to me in a long time."

His response divided viewers with a high number of complaints lodged.

"#dancingonice Rufus seriously can we not just watch light entertainment without politics," one fumed.

Another posted: "Rufus Hound, what a disappointment with his 'Political Statement' on #DancingOnIce . FFS can't entertainers stick to entertaining for just 5 minutes."

But plenty backed his stance as one viewers said: "Good on Rufus for putting this useless lot to shame."

"Rufus Hound throwing shade at the government over the free school meals business has made my night #dancingonice."
