Episode 4973 was broadcast on 5 February 2010, as part of Series 62.

Jay Lopian played Phill Thorne, with Jay Lopian winning 81 – 79. The Dictionary Corner guest was Kaye Adams, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: In Round 7, Lopian seemed to declare the illegal OUTSTEER, whereas everyone else thought he declared the legal OUTSTARE. He won by just 2 points, so Thorne was invited back to the next series.
