# The final episode, 'Things Aren't Simple Anymore' was at the centre of a minor scandal when it was alleged by Richard Wilson that rival network ITV deliberately leaked the result of their gameshow Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, which was scheduled opposite Victor's last shout. The gameshow had been recorded the day before and featured Britain's first ever millionaire winner. ITV denied the claim, and pointed to the fact that the ratings for the One Foot... episode had increased by one million viewers compared to the previous week.
