Episode 5291 was broadcast on 22 June 2011, as part of Series 65.

Matt Croy played Chris Hemingway, with Matt Croy winning 95 – 86. The Dictionary Corner guest was Tim Vine, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

This was the first episode in which the conundrum answer board displayed "INCORRECT" after a contestant offered a wrong guess for the conundrum. Of course, as long as this feature remains in place, INCORRECT cannot be used as a conundrum solution again.
