Danny Dyer will present a special EastEnders crossover especially for BBC Children in Need as two of Walford’s finest take on The Wall.
Fellow cast members Tony Clay and Roger Griffiths — who play Callum Highway and Mitch Baker — will face tricky questions all about the beloved soap in the freefall round of The Wall as they attempt to win money for disadvantaged children around the UK.
The Wall recently returned for BBC One for its second series and will be returning to BBC One on 14 November.
Tony Clay spoke of taking part in the special show. He said: “It was very, very enjoyable. It was made more enjoyable by the fact Danny was hosting it. It was a real surreal thing seeing him up there doing it, he really smashed it.
“It’s great to raise money for charity and to do something for BBC Children in Need. We always try and help out where we can. I’m really excited that we won some money for such an important charity.”
Roger Griffiths also emphasised the importance of Children in Need. He said: “Things are bad right now. Things like BBC Children in Need can fall by the wayside because of what’s happening with things like Covid, so it’s really important we pay attention and give as much as we can and do as much as we can.”
The Wall v’s EastEnders will air as part of the line-up on special programming during the annual appeal show on BBC One on Friday 13 November.
This year Children in Need show will be hosted by Mel Giedroyc, Stephen Mangan, Alex Scott MBE and Chris Ramsey. The hosts have come together to help disadvantaged children and young people across the UK, making sure that millions of kids are safe, secure and have their basic needs met.
