Episode 6999 was broadcast on 29 January 2019, as part of Series 80.

Tomack Gilmore played Adam Davidson, with Adam Davidson winning 98 – 57. The Dictionary Corner guest was Suzannah Lipscomb, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: In Round 1, Davidson was not shown being asked to spell his word; therefore, he may have intended the word FARES rather than FAIRS. The second Teatime Teaser was also illegal as bitterest ☓ is not specified in the Oxford Dictionary Online.
