Pussycat Dolls Nicole Scherzinger, Ashely Roberts, Kimberly Wyatt, Jessica Sutta and Carmit Bachar have generated complaints to broadcasting watchdog Ofcom of late over their raunchy performances.

Their skimpy outfits and steamy routines in their pre-watershed slot have attracted criticism from some viewers.

However, several members of the group have defended themselves with lead vocalist Scherzinger standing by their racy comeback performance on The X Factor: Celebrity last year.

She said: “Those costumes, we put that together in three days and those outfits were a bit provocative,” said the 41-year-old star.

“But we're women now.”

Scherzinger went on: “It takes courage to be that vulnerable.”

Meanwhile, Wyatt has insisted that the group is out to spread a "positive message" and that she's happy to let her daughters, who are five and two, to watch them perform.

She said: “They love it, they love seeing it and I love bringing them to dress rehearsals and things.
