Dani Dyer's boyfriend, Sammy Kimmence, has pleaded guilty to five counts of fraud, relating to his involvement in a scam which stole almost £34,000 from pensioners. The 24-year-old, who's a stockbroker and amateur footballer, admitted posing as a financial advisor to two elderly men.

The victims of the scam, 90-year-old Peter Martin and 80-year-old Peter Haynes, had been clients at a company Kimmence previously worked for, which shut down. When it did, Kimmence is accused of masquerading as a financial advisor and taking the gentlemen's money.

Sammy Kimmence, who recently welcomed a baby with Love Island star Dani Dyer, appeared at Portsmouth Crown Court yesterday in relation to the charges. The court heard how Kimmence used one of his victims' credit cards to make purchases of over £1,300, and how he used one of their bank cards to withdraw more than £1,200 for himself. It was also heard that Sammy Kimmence managed to con Peter Martin into transferring him more than £23,000 across two different transactions. He similarly convinced Peter Haynes to send him £7,927.

Sadly, Peter Martin passed away in November last year. Peter Haynes suffers from Alzheimer's.

Dani Dyer gave birth to the couple's son, Santiago, in January this year. Speaking on her dad's podcast, the 24-year-old mum said: "Me and Sammy are so in love with him. He’s just so perfect and the feeling is just incredible, I can’t put into words how it feels."
