The Wall returns for its second series on BBC One on Saturday, October 3rd with Cockney legend Danny Dyer leading the charge as the main presenter.
The Wall is a competitive series which sees pairs of contestants answer questions which they will need a combination of knowledge, a solid game plan and a dash of luck. After answering questions – and hopefully racking up some cash – whether they get to keep the prize depends on a gamble as the ball drops in a pinball roulette-fashion.
They definitely don’t want to mess this one up!
So, what is The Wall? Here is everything you need to know about the show from where it’s filmed to how to watch.
Where was The Wall filmed? Series 2 has a different location
The second series was filmed at the Wembley Arena, London.
The Wall is produced by Endemol Shine UK, who are responsible for other major BBC competition series such as MasterChef.
The first season of The Wall was filmed in a studio in Warsaw, Poland as the Radio Times revealed, but due to travel restrictions and the ongoing pandemic – this wasn’t a possibility this year.
In an interview with Radio Times, Danny Dyer revealed how he felt about the different location in 2020. He said:
“I prefer it of course. It’s London my hometown. Because of COVID we had to move the show here but it sort of works in my favour.”

Who is the voice reading the question?
Although Danny Dyer is at the front of the show as the presenter and games master, there is a voiceover reading out the questions to the contestants.
The voice belongs to a 75-year-old journalist, newsreader and TV personality Angela Rippon.
Angela was a newsreader for the BBC for many years before retiring from news and turning to TV. Since 2009, Angela has been one of the co-presenters on Rip Off Britain. From 2013 onwards she also joined the Holiday Hit Squad team as a co-presenter.
