Episode 7405 was broadcast on 8 December 2020, as part of Series 82.

Daniel Jonathan played Tim White, with Daniel Jonathan winning 79 – 72. The Dictionary Corner guest was Nina Wadia, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

The Teatime Teasers in this episode were lifted from Episode 5023, but in the ten years between episodes, ALFRESCO had dropped out of the dictionary, thus making the first teaser illegal.

Nick Hewer provided the solution for Round 14, though inadvertently stated "8 − 9 = 1" before being corrected by Riley.
