Episode 6754 was broadcast on 1 February 2018, as part of Series 78.

Louise Regan played David Shipley, with David Shipley winning 78 – 64. The Dictionary Corner guest was Suzannah Lipscomb, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: In Round 5, Dictionary Corner suggested PAGEANT as a 7, though it would not have been valid here as there was only one A in the selection. In addition, in Round 13, Regan was not asked to spell her word; therefore, she may have intended the word WAIST rather than WASTE.
