Episode 6731 was broadcast on 15 December 2017, and was the second quarter-final of Series 77.

Bradley Horrocks played James Kennedy, with Bradley Horrocks winning 86 – 80. The Dictionary Corner guest was Paul Zenon, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

In a rare error, when Rachel Riley displayed Horrocks' Round 7 declaration of PEINETA on the letters board, it was misspelt as PIENETA; the subtitles also listed this misspelt version.
