“If you, a partner, relation or close friend, think you have what it takes then apply NOW and you could be taking on the biggest opponent on UK TV – The Wall!”

You must be 18 or over in order to apply.

How does The Wall work?

In each show one pair take on The Wall in four rounds that are the ultimate combination of strategy, knowledge and luck.

Contestants face a series of multiple choice questions as balls fly down The Wall. The balls fall randomly towards slots of varying cash amounts.

If they answer correct, the balls turn green and money is added to their prize pot. However, answer a question incorrectly and the ball turns red, deducting the amounts of the slots they land in


Danny Dyer said: “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.”

The latest series of The Wall continues each Saturday on BBC One, with previous episodes including The Wall Versus Celebrities available to watch now on BBC iPlayer.
