The comedian was speaking on Friday’s episode of It Takes Two when he opened up about his own experience.
John, 32, and Johannes, 34, who are both gay, have made history as Strictly’s first-ever all-male dance partnership.https://videos.metro.co.uk/video/met/2021/12/10/554943277769931649/480x270_MP4_554943277769931649.mp4
The pair have been praised by fans for ‘inspiring’ them to come out to their friends and family, and Stephen has now echoed those comments.
It Takes Two presenter Rylan Clark said that their pairing was ‘fantastic for the LGBT community’, adding that their dancing alone was incredible, regardless of their historic partnership.
The comedian agreed, asking Rylan: ‘Remember when you’d go to a friend’s 18th birthday party and the last song comes on and all the straight couples get up and have their little dance?
‘And you’re sat in the corner pretending this isn’t your boyfriend?’
He added: ‘It’s so important to see this, because maybe I would have got up and danced a little bit more.’
Stephen admitted that he ‘cries every time they come on’, and the dancers have left him ‘a nervous wreck’.
He also joked he ‘gets twitches in little places as they’re so attractive together’, to which Rylan, looking at the camera, remarked: ‘You’re watching BBC Two.’
Responding, the popular comedian laughed: ‘Thank you to Drag Race, I can now say that.’
John and Johannes remain one of the favourites to win the competition, after being tipped by the bookmakers early on.
With the final just days away, the pair will be performing not one but two dances this weekend, starting with their Couples Choice to Adele’s Hometown Glory and a Jive to Higher Power by Coldplay.
Their fiery Pirates of the Carribean Paso Doble has been their best dance to date after the judges scored them 39 out of 40.
