The Beeb sold the show hard ahead of the launch, claiming: “Wildly unpredictable with heart stopping jeopardy, The Wall gives and The Wall takes away.

“Expect colossal wins and heartbreaking losses, this game show really can change people’s lives in an instant.”

In last night’s returning episode, Northern Irish sisters Nichola and Paula did indeed take home a pretty life-changing sum of £89k.

And while viewers were thrilled for them, it was Master Dyer’s catchphrases they were really living for.

The highlight came as he called The Wall “you mug!”.

One fan summed up general reaction to the show, saying: “I didn’t realise that what we really needed in this pandemic was Danny Dyer in Poland shouting DROP IT to a wall while people try and win money but it is absolutely what we needed.”

Danny has no problem hyping up his own show either, telling Radio Times: “I think I’m clearly biased, but there ain’t no gameshow like our one.

“I’ve just been blessed to front a game that is so different every week – and it’s not Tipping Point. I had to go there! You’re not going to win £300 on this show, It’s all in or nothing.”
