Speaking about shooting the final episode, Hugh told the panel that producers didn't tell him when he was filming his final scene.

"We didn't know," said Hugh. "As far as I remember, there were various scenes in the last show and there was one little bit of dialogue, where I turn to Claire Skinner [Sue Brockman] and go, 'We've not done badly have we?' and you think, 'Oh, that sounds a bit [final]' but we weren't formally told, as far as I remember, until after we recorded it which was probably quite a good thing."

Outnumbered aired for five series on BBC One from 2007 to 2014.
