Episode 6541 was broadcast on 16 March 2017, as part of Series 76.

Lawrie Collingwood played Mike Dittner, with Lawrie Collingwood winning 70 – 51. The Dictionary Corner guest was Hugh Dennis, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

In Rounds 12 and 13, Dictionary Corner did not note that Dittner's offering of dioxase ☓ and glaves ☓ respectively were invalid. However, this would not have influenced the outcome of the round.

The audience member who solved the conundrum was Mauro Pratesi, a contestant in Series 65 and the father of the following day's challenger, Natasha.
