The dates and celebrities for the three specials are:

Presenter and filmmaker Stacey Dooley alongside Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood.

Thursday, 31 December 2020, 18:40PM on BBC One
Television presenter Alex Brooker who will be teaming up with actress and presenter Sally Lindsay.

Saturday, 20 February 2021, 6:40PM on BBC One
Former footballers turned pundits Chris Kamara and John Barnes.

Jo Wallace, Acting Controller of Entertainment Commissioning at BBC said: “The Wall is without doubt the biggest opponent anyone can face on TV and it will be a lot of fun seeing if these six famous faces can rise to the challenge in these three special episodes.”

Richard Hague, Creative Director at programme makers Remarkable Television, added: “The Wall is ready and waiting for these famous faces to come and have a go.”


In addition to these celebrity episodes, viewers can expect to see more willing couples who will face The Wall later in 2021.
