After a steamy hot tub make-out session early in this season of Below Deck Sailing Yacht, Daisy Kelliher and Gary King have kept things strictly professional. Why, they’ve even gone back to their usual bickering in the latest episodes of the show.

But recent Instagram posts have had us wondering if Daisy and Gary caught some romantic feelings after filming Season 3 of Below Deck Sailing Yacht. First, Parsifal III's new deckhand, Barnaby Birkbeck, raised a few eyebrows on May 22 with this caption about Daisy and Gary: “Seeing this gorgeous couple in London today!” he wrote. “Love is in the air.”

Then, Daisy posted several photos of her “Sunday funday” in London with Gary, Barnaby, and other friends, and the pics were just downright adorable.

Now, Daisy has set the record straight on her current relationship status with Gary. “So I know the rumour mill went into full meltdown at the weekend but we are still not a couple,” she confirmed on Instagram on May 25. “We are just good friends who still fight a lot and then make up.”

Daisy really drove home the fact that she and Gary aren’t dating by including a hashtag that read “still not a couple.”

The yachties previously confirmed they were not dating during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in March after some photos showed them hanging out in Los Angeles. Gary said they got together just “as friends,” adding, “Daisy’s friend-zoned me, unfortunately.”

When The Daily Dish caught up with Daisy and Captain Glenn Shephard at the NBCUniversal upfront on May 16, the chief stew shared her reaction to the fan response to her and Gary’s make-out session, including the fact that many are hoping these two ultimately do end up together. “I’m relieved. I thought everyone was gonna hate me and, like, egg me in the street for hooking up with Gary,” Daisy shared. “But, you know, I get it. I see the appeal of me and Gary. You know, you’re always rooting for the underdog or the things you didn’t know you wanted. So I’m OK with people kind of shipping us.”

Captain Glenn, who has now worked with Daisy and Gary for two seasons on Below Deck Sailing Yacht, also revealed what he thought of his crew members locking lips. “I always felt there was something there — there was some tension, for sure. And, you know, they’re at each other. You know how sometimes in high school, you tease the one that you’re kind of interested [in]? So I think there was a bit of that,” he said. “Didn’t really surprise me that much.”

“I think the person who’s most surprised is me, to be honest,” Daisy noted.

So, have Daisy and Gary shared a smooch since that night in the hot tub? “I don’t kiss and tell,” Daisy cheekily responded.
