Episode 6017 was broadcast on 23 October 2014, as part of Series 71.

Jonny Rye played George Ford, with George Ford winning 102 – 92. The Dictionary Corner guest was Dave Myers, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

The result hinged on Dent's controversial decision to disallow Rye's HEADWAYS, as whilst HEADWAY was given as a mass noun, there was a second definition that could, arguably, have taken a plural form. Allowing this word would have changed the score to 100 – 96 in Rye's favour. According to producer Damian Eadie, Rye was invited back, but for reasons unknown, did not take up the invitation.
