How can I force ToC not to end with a chapter?

Does anyone know a way of adding a \newpage (or similar) to the ToC. One of my chapter headings is at the bottom of a page and I'd like to drop it down to start off the next page. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

You need to "sneak" a \newpage into the ToC using \addtocontents{toc}{\protect\newpage}. Here is a minimal example showing the difference - bottom 2-page layout shows the addition of the \newpage:

\newpage in \tableofcontents

\documentclass{memoir}% http://ctan.org/pkg/memoir
\begin{document}
\tableofcontents
\chapter{First chapter}
\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}
\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}
\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}
\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}
\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}
%\addtocontents{toc}{\protect\newpage} % Adds \newpage in "\tableofcontents"
\chapter{Another chapter}
\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}
\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}
\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}\section{A section}
\end{document}
​

It is usually required to \protect entries going into the ToC (or any external file, in general). For more on this, you should read What is the difference between Fragile and Robust commands?
