The dancer, who made history as part of the first ever same-sex male pairing in the show’s history, thinks his Steph’s Packed Lunch colleague would be a ‘great’ fit for next year’s series.
Speaking during an Instagram live, John was asked whether he’d ever persuade Steph to dance next year.
‘You know I said to Steph, my friend and colleague that she should do it bc she’d be great, but I don’t know if she will, I hope she will,’ he told his followers.
‘I’m sure they’d want her, Steph’s got some moves, let me tell you.’
Steph previously celebrated John’s efforts with dance partner Johannes Radebe on Instagram following their groundbreaking first performance on the programme.
The presenter wrote on Instagram: ‘YES!!!! So proud of you!! @john_whaite and @johannesradebe I got goosebumps and cried my eyes out.
‘YOU DID IT!!!’ she added.
Could we see the presenter star on the programme next year?
Meanwhile, John recently said the latest series of Strictly has proved ‘anyone can dance with anyone’ after being asked if he believed viewers would see a transgender contestant on the show in the future.
After John, 32, was partnered up with professional Johannes, 34, the series was praised by many fans for providing LGBTQ+ representation for millions.
Rose Ayling-Ellis won the show after becoming the first-ever Deaf contestant to take part with partner Giovanni Pernice.
After a groundbreaking series, EastEnders star Rose was crowned the winner, making history as not only the first deaf person to take part in the show, but also to become champion.
Meanwhile, Strictly will head out on tour in cities up and down the country in the spring, with stars of the 2021 series hitting the road.
Strictly Come Dancing is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
