"Is it GANDISEEG?"

Episode 4747 was broadcast on 30 January 2009, and was the Championship of Champions XIII grand final.

Charlie Reams played Steve Briers, with Steve Briers winning 88 – 67. The Dictionary Corner guest was Paul Zenon, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

This episode was notable for Reams comically buzzing in the conundrum with GANDISEEG, referring to Richard Brittain's guess at the conundrum in the first round of the tournament, immediately after Briers' wrong answer.
