Episode 6594 was broadcast on 1 June 2017, as part of Series 76.

Euan Cosh played Chloe Hutton, with Chloe Hutton winning 83 – 21. The Dictionary Corner guest was Dan Walker, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

Cosh's 21 points has the dubious distinction of being the lowest score made by a contestant in the champion's chair in the new 15-round format.

NOTE: In Round 4, Dictionary Corner did not note that Cosh's offering of sopier ☓ was not in the dictionary. However, this proved academic as Hutton offered a longer word anyway.
