How Dani Dyer’s boyfriend Sammy Kimmence lived high life with £500 spa days & luxury trips after scamming £34k from OAPs

DANI Dyer's boyfriend lived the high life with £500 spa days and luxury trips abroad after scamming £34,000 from OAPs.

Sammy Kimmence was regularly seen on social media enjoying plush holidays in Ibiza and expensive days out - after conning two elderly men, aged 90 and 80 out of money.

He fooled the OAPs between 2016 and 2018 by pretending he would invest the money through his company, and failing to do so.

Today the 24-year-old, who recently became a dad with Dani, admitted posing as a financial investor and is now facing jail.

There is no suggestion Dani or her family benefited from Kimmence's crimes, or were aware of his wrongdoing.

Portsmouth Crown Court heard Kimmence took on Peter Martin and Peter Haynes when his business stopped operating, falsely claiming he was authorised to provide financial services.

Up until he was charged in early 2020, Kimmence was still enjoying a lavish lifestyle, with it regularly featured on the pair's Instagram accounts.

He and Dani, 24, showed off date nights at the popular Chigwell spot Sheesh in January 2020 - where a burger costs £40.

They spent days out at fancy spa Pennyhill Park, Surrey, which costs £540-a-day per couple, and posted photos of dinner at a posh Mayfair restaurant - Bagatelle - where caviar is served for up to £900.

Dani posted lots of snaps of them enjoying regular holidays in Ibiza during the summer of 2019 - partying at Ocean Beach Club and posing in the sunshine.


After welcoming a child, Santiago, the couple most recently moved into a £725,000 Essex home in March, showing off pictures of the plush property online.

Former Love Island star Dani gave fans a look inside the fancy pad, writing: "Here’s to the next chapter❤️🏡🔑."

"Feel so grateful to have found our perfect home to raise our beautiful boy in💙."

Kimmence first appeared in court over the offences in February 2020, and pleaded guilty today.

The judge warned him his offences were so serious he could be sent to jail when he is sentenced on June 11.

Kimmence, from Essex, pleaded guilty to five counts of fraud, totalling £33,919.

Standing in the dock dressed in a black suit with a blue tie, he spoke only to confirm his name and plead guilty to each charge.

The court heard Kimmence, used one of his victims' bank cards to withdraw more than £1,200 for himself and also racked up credit card charges of more than £1,300.

He also admitted to getting Mr Martin to transfer him £22,912 on one occasion, and £400 on another. He conned Mr Haynes in a similar way out of £7,927.

Mr Martin died in November last year aged 91, while Mr Haynes suffers from Alzheimer's.

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."

Kimmence is a 24-year-old stockbroker and amateur footballer from Essex - he plays for Barkingside FC.

Before Dani went into the Love Island villa, she and Kimmence had a relationship that ended in a series of rows.

Once she left the villa and her romance with Jack Fincham came to an end, they rekindled their romance.

On April 23, 2019, The Sun exclusively revealed the pair had rekindled their romance after being spotted embracing in public.
