Hundreds of viewers have complained about Lady Gaga's performance on The X Factor on Sunday, according to Ofcom.

Around 200 people contacted the broadcasting watchdog about her outfit of shells and flesh-coloured underwear.

"We will assess all the complaints received on this issue before deciding whether to investigate," said a spokesman.

Another 60 viewers have complained directly to ITV about the singer's appearance, before the 9pm watershed.

An ITV spokeswoman said: "We do not believe Lady Gaga's performance was inappropriate for the family audience of the X Factor Results show, which has an established tradition of featuring performances from the biggest music stars.

"Lady Gaga is well known for her highly individual performance style."

In 2010, The X Factor final featured Christina Aguilera in a routine which was described as being "at the very margin of acceptability" by Ofcom.

A report said the "sexualised" pre-watershed scenes led to 2,868 complaints to the media regulator after Aguilera wore a short black dress while her female dancers wore suspenders, bra tops, fishnet stockings and basques.

Sunday night's results show saw girl group Miss Dynamix become the latest act eliminated from the competition after the judges voted to keep 17-year-old Hannah Barrett in the competition.
