Episode 6640 was broadcast on 8 August 2017, as part of Series 77.

Michael Pfeffer played Brian Kitson, with Michael Pfeffer winning 102 – 48. The Dictionary Corner guest was Helen Fospero, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: Pfeffer's Round 11 declaration of SHAMER was disallowed by Dictionary Corner, but could be found in the edition of the Oxford Dictionary Online in use at the time. This would not have affected the outcome of the match, but the final score should have been 108 – 48.
