Episode 6669 was broadcast on 19 September 2017, as part of Series 77.

Ben Leyburn played Phil Peel, with Phil Peel winning 103 – 88. The Dictionary Corner guest was Janet Street-Porter, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: After the conundrum, Leyburn admitted to Nick Hewer that he thought the answer was emblazon ☓, but as he did not give any answer when he buzzed in, it is taken as the latter situation in the table.
