Below Deck’s Kyle Dixon gets a visit from his transgender girlfriend Ashley on this week’s episode — and he’s all loved up during an emotional reunion.

The pair are reunited after Ashley flies over from England to see him on the Valor as he sails around the Caribbean for the Bravo show’s fourth season.

Kyle came out as bisexual on last week’s episode, and revealed he been seeing Ashley after meeting her in the gay district of Manchester in the UK.

Today the pair have a heartwarming reunion on a pontoon while the Valor is in harbor, with Ashley jumping into Kyle’s arms with joy.

Kyle is also relieved at being reunited, saying: “I’m really happy to see her. I didn’t realize how much I was going to miss her until I got here.”

Kyle then introduces her to the crew including Kelley Johnson and Nico Scholley, before Ashley makes fun of Kyle’s tan.

She tells him: “You look ridiculous. I’m either gonna have to fake tan you so you’re evened out. You’re not even helping yourself. It’s not difficult.”

Meanwhile third stew Sierra Storm, who Kyle tried to woo while Ashley was back in the UK, seems concerned for Ashley.

She says: “I feel for Ashley, being in a relationship with someone like Kyle. I feel like Kyle’s very sketchy. That’s not what I want for my life.”

During the episode, titled Bemily, Kyle has to decide whether or not he should tell Ashley about his date with Sierra.

Meanwhile, Kelley faces the music after getting Dean stranded on an island, and Captain Lee Rosbach makes some changes to the exterior crew which gets Kelly all shaken up.

Below Deck airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
