Danny Dyer to host BBC One’s brand new game show, The Wall
BBC One and Remarkable Television, part of Endemol Shine UK, have announced a brand new Saturday night game show, The Wall.

Wildly unpredictable with heart stopping jeopardy, The Wall gives and The Wall takes away. Expect colossal wins and heart-breaking losses, this new game show really can change people’s lives in an instant. In this game, pairs need the right answers, the right bounces and cast-iron trust in one another to win a life-changing cash prize.
The Wall, an original format created by SpringHill Entertainment and Andrew Glassman’s Glassman Media in collaboration with Universal Television Alternative Studio, was first shown in America on NBC in 2016. The most travelled format of 2017 and 2018, The Wall is an international hit and has sold to 24 territories around the globe.
Danny Dyer says: “I’d never had a desire to host a gameshow before I saw this game. I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to help win the public some serious life-changing readies. I love it.”
Kate Phillips, Controller of Entertainment Commissioning at BBC, says: “The Wall is an exciting, challenging and tense quiz where destinies dramatically change with the drop of a single ball. Danny is an unforgettable and very unique host as he commands The Wall, roots for the contestants and hits our hearts and our funny bones.”
Richard Hague, Creative Director at Remarkable Television, says: “This show is epic not just in scale, but in the drama that unfolds throughout the game. Having Danny at the helm means we’re in for a memorable, compelling and entertaining watch.”
