Episode 6523 was broadcast on 20 February 2017, as part of Series 76.

Wesley Jardine played Des Hinks, with Wesley Jardine winning 78 – 57. The Dictionary Corner guest was Rick Astley, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

In Round 13, Hinks was erroneously asked to declare his word length first, contrary to the usual pattern in which the player in the Contestant 1 position declares first in odd-numbered rounds.
