As the hosts praised him for his brave actions, modest Stephen said: "I done what anyone else would have done."
What an amazing man.
Speaking about the atrocity, Steve said he rushed to help injured children, wiping blood from their eyes and pulling glass and shrapnel from their bodies.
Earlier this week, he told ITV news how he and a friend held up a woman's leg until medics arrived to stop her bleeding out.
News of Steve's incredible actions soon spread across the country, quickly reaching West Ham owner David Sullivan and his son, who offered him six months' free accommodation and money to help him get his life back on track.
Steve, who used to work as a bricklayer, has also received job offers. A fundraising page has been set up and has already raised £22,458.
