Episode 7538 was broadcast on 25 June 2021, and was the Series 83 Grand Final.

Luke Boynton played Adam Latchford, with Adam Latchford winning 101 – 86. The presenter was Nick Hewer, the Dictionary Corner guest was Rufus Hound, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

This was the final episode presented by Nick Hewer; both Teatime Teasers and the Conundrum referenced his imminent departure, while his former employer Alan Sugar contributed a video message which aired during Susie's Origins of Words. Additionally, this was also the last appearance of the clock starter button, and the last Grand Final to award the twenty volumes of the Oxford English Dictionary.
