Episode 6145 was broadcast on 27 May 2015 as part of Series 72.

Steve Redfern played Ann-Marie Davies, with Steve Redfern winning 85 – 70. The Dictionary Corner guest was Steve Backshall, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: Redfern's declaration of VASELINE was incorrectly disallowed, as the dictionary definition specifies that even though it is capitalised in the trademark sense, there is a sense which allows it with a lower case V. Luckily, it didn't alter the result of the match.
