Episode 6776 was broadcast on 5 March 2018, as part of Series 78.

Zarte Siempre played Donal Casey, with Zarte Siempre winning 118 – 70. The Dictionary Corner guest was Myleene Klass, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: In Round 4, Dictionary Corner did not state the spelling or length of their word; therefore, they may have intended their offering to be either FUNGUS or FUNGOUS.

NOTE: In Round 14, when transcribing Siempre's solution, Rachel Riley mistakenly wrote "10 − 6" on the board instead of "10 − 4".
