The Danny Dyer-hosted game show The Wall returned for series two tonight (October 3) and viewers were truly hooked.
The tense – and at times quite stressful – game show involves the combination of strategy, knowledge and a lot of luck from its contestants to win as much money as possible.
"Wildly unpredictable with heart stopping jeopardy, The Wall gives and The Wall takes away," the BBC previously said while teasing the new series.
"Expect colossal wins and heartbreaking losses, this game show really can change people's lives in an instant."
In tonight's episode, sisters Nichola and Paula took home a rather impressive £89k, which resulted in tears at the end following their "life-changing" amount of money.
On the whole, viewers loved having EastEnders star Dyer's game show back, with one person tweeting: "#thewall with @MrDDyer is one of the best game shows on the tele! Gripping from start to finish."
Quiz show hosts don’t come much better than Danny Dyer #TheWall— Jo Whiley (@jowhiley) October 3, 2020
Without doubt new favourite family quiz show obsession.
It’s rather nice to spend Saturday night as a family shouting at the telly #TheWall— Pam Rostron ex-BFI (@extvcuratorbfi) October 3, 2020
Such a simple game show format #TheWall and Danny Dyer is the perfect host.— Stephen Joy (@mrstephenjoy) October 3, 2020
One huge aspect of the show involves sheer luck as to where the balls will fall. There seems to be no particular skill to making them land where you want them to, though shouting at the balls to move seemed to be tonight's main tactic.
I love #TheWall— Holestar (@Holestar) October 3, 2020
People trying to steer a ball by screaming at it.
Danny 'The Don' Dyer strutting around giving us drama and shouting "drop em" in a double breasted suit.
He just called The Wall a mug 😂
What an adorable scamp!
Stop shouting at the balls love, they can’t hear you. #TheWall— kay🕸 (@cal_mitchells) October 3, 2020
Danny Dyer being Danny Dyer was definitely a talking point, but even fellow presenter Vernon Kay thought he was a great host: "Said it before, I'll say it again. The way Danny Dyer has totally embraced the format points of #TheWall makes him a superb game show host."
