Episode 6698 was broadcast on 30 October 2017, as part of Series 77.

Tom Brodie played Rob McCrudden, with Rob McCrudden winning 94 – 37. The Dictionary Corner guest was John Challis, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: In Round 4, McCrudden asked for another vowel as his third letter, but Rachel mistakenly drew a consonant instead. She then drew another consonant when he'd just asked for "another" and then drew a vowel when he asked for a consonant.
