U.K. radio regulator OFCOM is looking into a contest on GCAP MEDIA Top 40 CAPITAL 95.8/LONDON after the station informed the agency that the winner of 155,000 pounds turned out to be ineligible for the prize, reports the GUARDIAN.
The "LONDON iTest" contest required callers to guess the identity of the celebrity saying the word "I," but a rules violation prompted the station to relaunch the contest five days after announcing the winner on JUNE 6th. The station has not disclosed what rules the winner violated or the identity of the winner. OFCOM said that it has not launched a formal investigation, but is reviewing the details of the contest.
