The Wall series 2 applications

The Wall will return for a second series on BBC One in 2020, it’s been announced.


Hosted by EastEnders star Danny Dyer and voiced by TV legend Angela Rippon, The Wall is the ultimate combination of strategy, knowledge and luck.

The Wall was first shown in the USA on NBC in 2016 before the debut UK series premiered this year.

Danny Dyer said of series 2: “I can’t believe we’re doing another series of The Wall. I can’t wait to get stuck back in and meet these new contestants and hopefully make them very rich. Drop ’em!”

Angela Rippon added: “I am so looking forward to another series being ‘the voice’ of The Wall.

“What a great opportunity for even more viewers to take on the challenge of The Wall and potentiality win life changing sums of money.”

Kate Phillips, Controller of Entertainment Commissioning at BBC, commented: “I know Danny and Angela had an absolute ball making series one of The Wall and it’s great to see how much BBC One viewers have enjoyed the ride.

“This wildly unpredictable format, or ‘nutty old show’ as Danny would say, has quickly become a Saturday night favourite for all ages, and I’m looking forward to more big drops, big shocks and big decisions in series two.”

Richard Hague, Creative Director at programme makers Remarkable Television, added: “A healthy dose of Danny, Angela and the infamous balls is the perfect tonic for where we are today in the world.

“Danny has proven himself a truly unique host bringing a breath of fresh air to our Saturday night TV viewing. Bring on series two and let’s hope more contestants walk off cake-o bake-o.”


Series 1 of The Wall concluded this weekend and is currently available to catch up on BBC iPlayer.

Series 2 of The Wall will air in 2020.
