Episode 7299 was broadcast on 6 April 2020, as part of Series 82.

Sean McCarthy played Danny McMackin, with Danny McMackin winning 84 – 78. The Dictionary Corner guest was Al Murray, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: McMackin's offering of shoutier ☓ in Round 5 should have been disallowed by Dictionary Corner, because the comparative and superlative run-off entries of the valid word SHOUTY are not listed in the Premium version Oxford Dictionaries Online nor in Lexico. The rules are that if an adjective has more than one syllable, its comparative and superlative forms must be specified to be considered allowable. Therefore, McCarthy should have won the game 78 – 76 and subsequently advanced to the next episode.

The opening interactions between Nick Hewer and the other celebrities was cut from the broadcast due to possible association with the COVID-19 pandemic that became widespread after the episode was filmed.
