Episode 6623 was broadcast on 13 July 2017, as part of Series 77.

Shabir Alidina played Adam Pope, with Shabir Alidina winning 67 – 58. The Dictionary Corner guest was Suzannah Lipscomb, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

This was the first crucial conundrum to be played in the "new" blue set. Notably, the brown table turned pink when the studio lights dimmed for the final round.

In Round 1, Dent incorrectly heard Alidina declaring sonnet ☓ and hence said there was only one N in the selection rather than saying he needed two Ns.
