Stephen went on to say while he is open to dating, he is against using dating apps.
He added: “One of my best mates met a girl online.
“But I think it’s a bit weird someone from the TV doing online dating. I think it’d be bizarre.”
Stephen previously dated EastEnders actress Emma Barton.
Emma, who plays Honey Mitchell and Stephen are reported to have met while working together in a Snow White pantomime in Birmingham 2008.
