Episode 4356 was broadcast on 17 May 2007, as part of Series 56.

Stuart Watts played Rob Bennie, with Rob Bennie winning 79 – 75. The Dictionary Corner guest was Ricky Tomlinson, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

Notably, the letters selection in round 8 was made by Carol Vorderman. The first tile she selected was actually a Q; however, she said this was her chance to be in charge and threw the tile across the studio.
