Episode 6182 was broadcast on 3 August 2015, as part of Series 73.

Stephen Briggs played Chris Wreaves, with Stephen Briggs winning 98 – 67. The Dictionary Corner guest was Gethin Jones, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

In the Round 2 letters game, Rachel Riley put up the letter Z without Wreaves having asked for a consonant. This error likely arose from her embarrassment at the first four letters that had come up. Wreaves stated that he was going to ask for a consonant anyway, so the outcome of the game was not affected.
