Episode 6613 was broadcast on 29 June 2017, and was the second semi-final of Series 76.

Jeff Clayton played Moose Rosser, with Moose Rosser winning 88 – 84. The Dictionary Corner guest was Colin Murray, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

This episode marked the 25th anniversary of Dent's first appearance as lexicographer. In honour of this, during his anecdote slot, Murray read an appreciative poem detailing her notable moments on the show, and a short clip from her first-ever show (Episode 1263 in Series 24) was broadcast, featuring Richard Whiteley and Dictionary Corner guest Rula Lenska introducing her as lexicographer for the first time. During Dent's Origins of Words slot, Nick Hewer also gave her a postcard and pen from one of her fans, football manager Arsène Wenger. Finally, at the end of the programme, Rachel Riley presented her with a bouquet.
