Episode 4732 was broadcast on 12 December 2008, and was the Series 59 grand final.

Junaid Mubeen played Charlie Reams, with Junaid Mubeen winning 88 – 84. The Dictionary Corner guest was Gyles Brandreth, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

Notably, this was Des O'Connor and Carol Vorderman's last episode and featured both of them receiving a bunch of flowers from Susie and Gyles respectively. At the end, Carol gave a short speech before bursting into tears, at which point the show ended.

This was also the last show to be played on the pink-decorated set that had been in use since Series 49.
