Below Deck Sailing Yacht's Captain Glenn Shephard has revealed to Digital Spy that he'd love to welcome back controversial crew member Adam Glick.

The chef crossed over from Below Deck Mediterranean to launch the newest Below Deck spin-off last year, but his comeback proved very divisive with the show's audience.

Chef Adam's romance with season one Chief Stew Jenna MacGillivray put them both in the firing line at the reunion for alienating the rest of the cast – and ultimately neither returned for the second season.

However, Captain Glenn recently told us that he's more than willing to welcome Adam back on board the Parsifal III for a future season.

"Oh yeah, I love Adam," Captain Glenn told us. "His food is fantastic. You know, he's a buddy. I dunno, sometimes he can be a grumpy old man for a young guy!"

The captain then explained: "I love him. I think he's a great guy. I definitely look forward to working with him again, for sure. I would probably look forward to working with a lot of the people I've worked with in my career. I've been very fortunate. I've worked with some great people.

"The situation with him and Jenna wasn't ideal in the first season, and they struggled a bit. It is what it is. Everyone saw what happened."

His counterpart Captain Sandy Yawn – who worked with Chef Adam on Below Deck Mediterranean – doesn't seem quite as open to bringing the chef back on board anytime soon.

When a viewer asked her if Adam was the best chef she'd worked with, Captain Sandy brought up an infamous Med episode where he'd hidden onions in a dish out of spite for a guest who hated the veggie.

"Adam didn't follow the preference sheet and put onions in the client's food when he asked him not to," Captain Sandy tweeted this week. "So no, he is not [the best]. Ben [Robinson] and Tom [Checketts] were the best on #BelowDeckMed."

Captain Glenn now has Natasha De Bourg in his galley, but thus far she's been off to a rough start as well while butting heads with Chief Stew Daisy Kelliher.

All seasons and every episode of Below Deck: Sailing Yacht are available to stream and download in the UK and Ireland on hayu and hayu on NOWTV, with new episodes on Tuesdays. Bravo airs the new season on Mondays.
