Talent shows such as The X Factor have been warned about showing "sexualised clothing and dance routines" by the communications watchdog Ofcom.

A new report cites the show's 2010 final which featured Christina Aguilera and dancers in a racy routine described as "at the very margin of acceptability" after thousands of viewers complained.

The watchdog has held meetings with broadcasters and issued new guidance on protecting under-18s.
