Episode 6356 was broadcast on 2 May 2016, as part of Series 74.

Dave Costello played Pippa Weigh, with Dave Costello winning 74 – 62. The Dictionary Corner guest was Greg Rusedski, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: Costello's offering of PETTIES in Round 8 is valid; though searching for it in the Oxford Dictionary Online does not return PETTY as a standalone noun, it is a valid variant spelling of PETTI (meaning "petticoat"). Therefore, the score should have finished 81 – 62.
