Episode 6656 was broadcast on 31 August 2017, as part of Series 77.

David McGaw played Nikki Saarsteiner, with Nikki Saarsteiner winning 76 – 70. The Dictionary Corner guest was Mark Pougatch, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

This episode was notable for two reasons. Firstly, Nick did not repeat the first Teatime Teaser's clue twice before the commercial break. Second, this episode also marked the first time the word DIARRHOEA has appeared since Episode Gotcha back in November 1998.
