Episode 7038 was broadcast on 25 March 2019, as part of Series 80.

Steven Turnbull played Alison Guirey, with Steven Turnbull winning 64 – 47. The Dictionary Corner guest was Mark Pougatch, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: Dictionary Corner erroneously suggested sensors as a 7 in Round 10; this was not an available word here as only two S's were present, which was ironic, given that Guirey's declaration of soreness was also disallowed for the same reason.
