Episode 6766 was broadcast on 19 February 2018, as part of Series 78.

Becky Taberner played Robert Zara, with Becky Taberner winning 80 – 64. The Dictionary Corner guest was Alistair McGowan, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: In Round 10, Taberner was not asked to spell her word; therefore, she may have intended the word PRIED rather than PRIDE. Similarly, in Round 11, Zara may have intended the word BYTE rather than BITE.
