Episode 6792 was broadcast on 27 March 2018, as part of Series 78.

Glen Jones played John Cole, with John Cole winning 80 – 55. The Dictionary Corner guest was Jay Rayner, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: In Round 4, Jones and Cole were not asked to spell their word (only to compare what they had written), but since Rachel Riley displayed the spelling JAILED on the board, this is taken as their declaration here rather than GAOLED.
