Dan Walker and Ore Oduba to host daytime gameshows on BBC


BBC Breakfast’s Dan Walker, is to host a new BBC One daytime show.

Chase The Case is a strategy gameshow, where contestants trade general knowledge for information, in order to secure a briefcase with the biggest prize inside.

“I am delighted to be hosting Chase The Case. Within a few minutes of sitting down with the team from Bandicoot it sounded like they had come up with a show that is lively, engaging and audiences can join in the fun and play along at home. I can’t wait to start filming,” said Walker.

Meanwhile, former BBC Sport colleague, Ore Oduba, has also been given a gameshow.

Hardball is described as a “nail-biting fast-paced quiz” where players answer questions to beat the ball.

“We continue to offer the widest range of original content in our daytime schedule and we’re constantly seeking out brand new formats that we think viewers will enjoy and learn from,” said Dan McGolpin controller of BBC programming and daytime.

“BBC One has a proud tradition of popular and challenging quiz shows and I’m very pleased to welcome Hardball and Chase The Case to our roster.”
