Stephen Bailey has praised Strictly Come Dancing 2021 stars John Whaite and Johannes Radebe for bringing visibility to same-sex couples as he recalls having to hide being gay as a teenager.

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.

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.’
