Episode 5676 was broadcast on 10 April 2013, as part of Series 68.

Giles Hutchings played Nick Courtnadge, with Giles Hutchings winning 115 – 50. The Dictionary Corner guest was Richard Madeley, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

In round 7, Courtnadge was not asked to spell his word (at least it was not shown on the broadcast), but since Rachel put up the spelling SWATTED, this has been taken as his declaration, rather than SWOTTED.
