TOO RISQUE? Rita Ora's revealing white trouser suit has attracted more than 400 complaints.

British TV watchdog Ofcom will not prosecute the BBC over Rita Ora's cleavage. 

The broadcaster was swamped with complaints from the British public who took issue with the singer's revealing outfit during an interview on The One Show.

While the watchdog said it understood many viewers had been offended, its spokesman said there had been no overt nudity and they were not going to launch an investigation into it.

"We assessed the complaints about Rita Ora wearing a low-cut dress but we did not take it any further," he said.

The show's hosts had apologied on Facebook, saying: "We're  sorry to those of you who were offended by Rita Ora's choice of  outfit on yesterday's show.

"If we had been consulted on it we would  have requested she wore something more suitable for 7pm."

A spokesperson for the BBC also issued a statement in response to the complaints. 

"The One Show allows guests to choose their own attire and pop stars often opt for something glamorous or striking," they said.

"We didn't feel that Rita's outfit would be outside of most viewers' expectations of that of a major pop star, but we appreciate that tastes vary."
