Episode 6490 was broadcast on 20 December 2016, and was the fourth quarter-final of Series 75.

John Shaw played Andrew Fenton, with Andrew Fenton winning 94 – 90. The Dictionary Corner guest was Carol Kirkwood, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

A Dictionary Corner anecdote was recorded for this episode, but for reasons unknown, it was not broadcast. It has been suggested on the c4c forum spoilers page for the day by other Series 75 finalists this was due to the topic being unsuitable for the timeslot. [1]

NOTE: In Round 11, Dent implied that TRUANCIES would have been invalid if offered by a contestant. However, it has been accepted at several points in the past and was not explicitly disallowed from one of the contestants, so it remains listed here for purposes of maximum score calculation.

The audience member who solved the conundrum was Apterite and Series 67 finalist Chris Marshall.
