The Wall, is set to feature three special celebrity specials as The Wall Versus Celebrities (3 x 50) heads to BBC One later this year.
Each of the three specials will feature different celebrity pairings as they go head to head with The Wall to win money for their chosen charities. The specials will feature presenter and filmmaker Stacey Dooley alongside Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood; former footballers turned pundits Chris Kamara and John Barnes; and television presenter Alex Brooker who will be teaming up with actress and presenter Sally Lindsay.
Jo Wallace, Acting Controller of Entertainment Commissioning at BBC says: “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 Remarkable Television, says: “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 in 2021 including twins from Yorkshire, sisters from Scotland and a married couple from Wales.
