Episode 6826 was broadcast on 15 May 2018, as part of Series 78.

Paul Harper played Dickie Bird, with Paul Harper winning 104 – 16. The Dictionary Corner guest was Adrian Chiles, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: In Round 2, Harper was not asked to spell his word, but since Rachel Riley displayed the word MINER on the board, this has been taken as his declaration here rather than MINOR.
