Rylan admonished actor Christopher Biggins, who was appearing as a guest on the spin-off show, for his remarks. Christopher praised John Whaite, 33, and Johannes Radebe, 34, for their incredible partnership and also questioned if there was a romantic spark between the Strictly pair.
The 32-year-old presenter was quick to shut down any speculation about the dancing couple, however, as he warned that “this is how rumours start”.
Christopher, 72, began by hailing the pair as “so exciting” and said that it was “wonderful” to see two men dancing together.
He said: “I think it’s very important. It’s like the two girls last year. It’s important to do that.”
“But they are exquisite!”
At this point Rylan added that the couple were “so strong together”, which Christopher agreed with vehemently.
The actor continued: “They almost look like they belong together forever.
“I mean, do you think they’re having a thing?”
Christopher then quickly answered “no” to his own question with a laugh.
It is well established that John has been in a relationship with his fiancé Paul Atkins for over a decade, after first meeting on Facebook back in 2008.
Four years on, John became a household name when he won series three of The Great British Bake Off, which launched his now very successful culinary career.
It is not known if Johannes has a partner, as the Strictly Come Dancing professional seems to be keeping a tight lid on his love life.
This week, Strictly’s first same-sex male couple will be taking on the Charleston set to Milord by famous French chanteuse Édith Piaf.

After Christopher made the comments, Rylan interjected with: “This is how rumours start! Stop it!
“Not on my watch. Do it on Janette’s night,” he joked.
John recently posted a sweet throwback snap of himself and graphic designer Paul to his Instagram story.
In the photo the couple were looking very young and dapper as they clapped for the dancers from the Strictly audience.
“Nine years ago (today I think) Paul and I were in the Strictly audience,” he shared.
“Who’d have thunk it?” (sic)
Last week, John and Johannes performed an American Smooth that placed them in the middle of the leaderboard with 29 points.
The couple to beat tonight is Dragon’s Den entrepreneur Sara Davies, 37, and professional dance partner Aljaž Škorjanec, 31, who scored 36 points with their Tango last Saturday.
