Episode 5073 was broadcast on 2 July 2010, as part of Series 63.

Ryan Loughborough played Ali Kelly, with Ryan Loughborough winning 97 – 75. The Dictionary Corner guest was Tim Vine, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: Ali's declaration of RAVERS in round 2 is actually invalid, as there was only one R in the selection. Also, in round 12, Rachel inadvertently picks a vowel, when Ali asked for a consonant. Notably, on the credits, the announcer pointed out that there had been a mistake.
