Episode 6584 was broadcast on 17 May 2017, as part of Series 76.

Amber Cotton played Jonathan De Souza, with Amber Cotton winning 85 – 64. The Dictionary Corner guest was Chris Hollins, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: In round 4, De Souza asked for a consonant, but was given an E from the vowel box instead. Additionally, in the same round, Dictionary Corner did not note that De Souza's offering of TONNE was invalid, as there was only one N in the selection. However, this proved academic as Cotton offered a longer word anyway.
