Episode 7081 was broadcast on 23 May 2019, as part of Series 80.

Elliott Mellor played Monica Quadri, with Elliott Mellor winning 126 – 10. The Dictionary Corner guest was Jon Culshaw, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: The original conundrum for this episode was MOUSEFLLY, which, when unscrambled would have produced FULSOMELY. However, due to both Mellor and Quadri buzzing in almost simultaneously, it was replaced.
