Episode 7742

From Countdown

Episode 7742 was broadcast on 18 April 2022, as part of Series 85.

Matt O'Connor played Charlie Edwards, with Matt O'Connor winning 130 – 6. The Dictionary Corner guest was Sophie Ellis-Bextor, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: Edwards was not asked to spell her word in Round 4 and both homonyms are thus listed here. Also, in Round 5, Dictionary Corner did not note that she had misdeclared OILED as a six, although this would not have affected the outcome of the round.
