Dani Dyer has reportedly vowed to stand by her boyfriend Sammy Kimmence as he faces the possibility of prison.

The 24 year old Love Island star’s boyfriend, who she shares son Santiago with, plead guilty to five counts of fraud at Portsmouth Crown Court on Monday 19 April.

He had originally pleaded not guilty to the charges last week, but changed his plea as he made his latest appearance in court.

And now, mum Dani’s representative told The Sun Online she and Sammy, 24, are “still together” when asked if she was continuing to support him following his last-minute plea change.

A source also told the publication: “She's vowed to stand by him, he's the father of her baby.”

OK! online has contacted Dani’s representatives for comment.

During the hearing at Portsmouth Crown Court, it was heard how Sammy’s victims Peter Martin, 90, and Peter Haynes, 80, were legitimate clients from an investment company where he used to work, with him taking them on when the business stopped operating.

Sammy falsely claimed to the victims that he was authorised to provide financial services, taking £33,919.

The stockbroker’s victim Peter Martin died in November 2020 age 91 while Peter Haynes suffers from Alzheimer’s.

Sammy plead guilty to five counts of fraud and was told by the judge how his offence were serious enough to cross the custody threshold and could land him a prison sentence.

It is not suggested that Dani was involved or was aware of her partner’s wrongdoing.

Sammy is due to be sentenced on Friday 11 June, when he will find out if he will face prison time.

Dani’s boyfriend spoke only to confirm his name and plead guilty to the charge.

Craig Harris, defending, said of Kimmence: “He is a relatively young man of previous good character, the offences go back into his late teenage years.

“This is a case that crosses the custodial threshold but might be within a range which I argue could be suspended.

“Quite a lot has gone into this young man's life in the last few years.
