Javine will represent the UK in this year's Eurovision Song Contest
Singer Javine has prompted TV viewer complaints after her breast was briefly exposed during a performance on BBC One show Making Your Mind Up.

The broadcaster received 10 complaints soon after Saturday's show with "fewer than 30" complaints received by Monday.

"The number of complaints received on the night was extremely small and the incident in question was a split-second occurrence," a show spokeswoman said.

Javine was chosen to represent the UK at the Eurovision Song Contest in May.

The 24-year-old singer's dress slipped down during her second performance of the night of her song Touch My Fire.

She denied the incident had been staged and attributed it to the excitement of the moment.

"I had just been told I'd won and I was jumping up and down and hugging everyone," she said. "The tape came away from my dress and it popped out.

"I'm not going to think about it now, it's one of those little things that happens during live TV."

She beat fellow singers Gina G, Andy Scott Lee, trio Tricolore and model Jordan - also known as Katie Price - in Saturday's public vote.

Javine, who was previously a contestant in ITV talent show Popstars: The Rivals, will perform the song during the Eurovision Song Contest in Ukraine on 21 May.
