Episode 6691 was broadcast on 19 October 2017, as part of Series 77.

James Kennedy played Krishna Shukla, with James Kennedy winning 105 – 39. The Dictionary Corner guest was Adrian Chiles, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

Rachel Riley made a reference to 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 11, Episode 2 in the beginning of this episode where she recalled thumb wrestling with Jimmy Carr after Nick Hewer commented Susie Dent was strong in that aspect as well.

NOTE: In Round 13, the second syllable of Dictionary Corner's offering of GOBSHITE was partially bleeped out, but Rachel displayed the word in full and uncensored on the letters board.
