Danny Dyer has reportedly quit as host of BBC Saturday night gameshow The Wall.

The Wall, which first aired in Autumn 2019, has ran for four series to date, with the latest run concluding earlier this year. Hosted by EastEnders star Danny Dyer, the series also featured TV legend Angela Rippon as the question reader.

When asked by The Sun if he will be returning to the gameshow, Danny replied: "No". The Sun reports that the BBC are open to casting a new host, though another series has not yet been commissioned.

A BBC spokesperson told The Sun: "Whilst The Wall is off air, fans can stream their favourite episodes on iPlayer plus there are plenty of other great quiz and game shows currently airing on Saturday nights on BBC One including The Weakest Link, Celebrity Catchpoint and Pointless Celebrities amongst others."

In each show one pair take on The Wall in three rounds that tests their general knowledge and trust in each other. In one round, contestants start out together playing for fast cash in Free Fall.

A multiple-choice question with two possible answers is asked by Angela and three white balls, from numbers 1, 4 & 7, drop down The Wall.

The balls fall randomly towards one of the fifteen money slots of varying cash amounts at the bottom, hopefully towards the £2.5k slot, the highest amount in this round.

The players have until a ball has reached the money to lock in their answer – which is only a few seconds.

If they’re correct, the balls turn green and the money the three balls landed in is added to their prize fund. However, if they’re wrong, the balls turn red and the money they potentially could have won is taken away from their prize fund!

The Wall is available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
