Episode 6889 was broadcast on 15 August 2018, as part of Series 79.

Adam Rolston played Leonora Fleming, with Adam Rolston winning 76 – 59. The Dictionary Corner guest was Julia Bradbury, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: For reasons unknown, Fleming was asked to declare her word first in the odd-numbered Round 5. In addition, in Round 13, Dictionary Corner suggested marlier as a 7, but this has never been valid in the Oxford Dictionary used by Countdown.
