Episode 6612 was broadcast on 28 June 2017, and was the first semi-final of Series 76.

Stephen Read played Annie Humphries, with Stephen Read winning 115 – 67. The Dictionary Corner guest was Colin Murray, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: In Round 11, Humphries' word INCLUDER was disallowed by Dictionary Corner, though it does appear in the Oxford Dictionary Online. This would not have affected the outcome of the match, but the final score should have been 115 – 75.
