Episode 6573 was broadcast on 2 May 2017, as part of Series 76.

Chris Ducker played John Robertson, with John Robertson winning 89 – 48. The Dictionary Corner guest was Richard Madeley, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: Ducker was awarded points for his declaration of CLINGED in round 10, though the Oxford Dictionary Online lists the past tense of CLING only as CLUNG. This would not have affected the outcome of the match, but the final score should have been 89 – 41 to Robertson.
