·1-min read

Dani Dyer’s family are reportedly “relieved” she has split from her jailed boyfriend Sammy Kimmence.

Kimmence, 25, was sentenced to three and a half years in prison on Wednesday after admitting five counts of fraud back in April.

Now Dani’s loved ones, including her father, EastEnders legend Danny Dyer, are said to be glad she ended the relationship with Kimmence, despite the birth of their first child Santiago in January.

A source told OK!: "Dani's dad Danny and her whole family are relieved she's walked away. They think this is for the best. They've told her she'll never be alone as a single mum as they'll always help her to raise Santiago."

The source added: "Dani knew Sammy's crime was bad but everyone thinks she just buried her head in the sand about it and didn't face up to the enormity of his crimes until he was sentenced."

Kimmence was given a prison term of 42 months for conning two pensioners out of almost £34,000, claiming he would invest it by placing bets on horse races.

Instead, the money was spent on funding his lavish lifestyle and paying off debts.

One of the victims, Peter Haynes, said: "I have worked all of my adult life and what was taken by Mr Kimmence was everything I had saved.

"It's no exaggeration to say that I was left living on the breadline as a result of his actions and dishonesty."

On Wednesday, 24-year-old Dani took to Instagram to reveal to her 3.4 million followers that she was packing for a holiday with Santiago.
