Episode 6561 was broadcast on 13 April 2017, as part of Series 76.

James Qualter played Owen Johnson, with James Qualter winning 95 – 67. The Dictionary Corner guest was Jay Rayner, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

To accommodate Johnson's cerebral palsy, Johnson declared his solutions first in all letters and numbers rounds; additionally, in Round 8, Dictionary Corner did not require Qualter to verify that his word was written down.
