Episode 7424 was broadcast on 18 January 2021, as part of Series 83.

Darren Phipps-Walker played Matthew Chivers, with Matthew Chivers winning 70 – 66. The presenter was Colin Murray, the Dictionary Corner guest was Richard Arnold, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

In Round 5, Dent did not pluralise HYALINE due to it meaning the same as HYALIN, which is an uncountable mass noun. Murray then appeared to say HYALINES – perhaps inadvertently – when Dent had finished.

Round 6's solution was offered by Murray.

In Round 10, presumably by accident, Chivers was asked to declare his word first despite declaring a longer word than Phipps-Walker. Additionally, Arnold also incorrectly stated that DECAMP was a 7, when it was actually a 6.
