Episode 7009 was broadcast on 12 February 2019, as part of Series 80.

Misba Sheikh played Elaine Hunt, with Misba Sheikh winning 81 – 61. The Dictionary Corner guest was Shaun Wallace, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: For reasons unknown, Hunt was asked to give her word length and declaration first in the odd-numbered Round 5. Also, Sheikh was not asked to spell her word in Round 12 and may have intended the word MINERS rather than MINORS.
