Episode 2475 was broadcast on 10 March 1999, as part of Series 40.

Stan Arnott played Phil O'Gorman, with Stan Arnott winning 61 – 41. The Dictionary Corner guest was Penny Smith, and the lexicographer was Mark Nyman.

NOTE: Stan's solution to the second Numbers Game in Round 8 should have been disallowed, as he used one of the numbers twice - his calculation of (75 - 2) x (5 - 2) to reach the target of 219 with the numbers 75, 7, 5, 2, 10 and 10 saw him use the '2' twice over when there was only one '2' in the selection. Therefore, whilst this error did not affect the outcome of the episode, with Phil offering 220 (one away from the target) the final score should have been 51 - 48 rather than 61 - 41. Had this error been spotted at the time, then the 10 lost points would have meant that Stan would not have qualified for the quarter finals of this series.
