Episode 7108 was broadcast on 1 July 2019, as part of Series 81.

Imogen Gordon played Colin Beattie, with Colin Beattie winning 82 – 75. The Dictionary Corner guest was Richard Arnold, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

This episode notably featured a unique backlight on its crucial conundrum, redder in colour than those used previously.

NOTE: In Round 13, Rachel Riley displayed Beattie's word as GRAYER on the board rather than GREYER; the former is marked as an American spelling and is thus not valid on Countdown.
