Dani Dyer enjoyed a family day with Sammy Kimmence and their baby son Santiago in Essex on Wednesday ahead of her boyfriend’s hearing on Friday 11 June.

In April, Sammy, 25, made a last-minute change to plead guilty to scamming two men out of £34K when he appeared at Portsmouth Crown Court.

At the time, Sammy was granted conditional bail until the hearing of his case on June 11 where he is at ‘risk of a custodial sentence’.

Dani was spotted with her boyfriend on Wednesday as they enjoyed a family stroll with their baby son Santiago, five months, who they welcomed in January.   

The daughter of EastEnders star Danny Dyer cut a casual figure in frayed denim shorts and a purple T-shirt.

The former Love Island star, 24, styled her blonde locks into a sweptback ponytail, she added a slick of make-up.

Dani finished her low-key look with black sunglasses and a diamond heart-shaped necklace with matching jewellery.

In a statement shared earlier this year, the star’s representative confirmed they are ‘still together’ after he appeared at Portsmouth Crown Court in April and admitted duping two men out of £34,000.

Dani, who welcomed son Santiago with Sammy in January, has reportedly vowed to stick by her beau after he made a last-minute change to plead guilty, and has now been told he could face prison time.

When asked whether they were still in a relationship, Dani’s representative told The Sun they are ‘still together.’ 

A source close to the star added: ‘She’s vowed to stand by him, he’s the father of her baby.’ 

MailOnline contacted representatives for Dani Dyer for further comment at the time. 

It comes after Sammy was warned in April that he faces jail after he admitted scamming two elderly men out of £34,000 by posing as a financial investor.

The entrepreneur duped Peter Martin, 90, and Peter Haynes, 80, between 2016 and 2018 by persuading the vulnerable pensioners to allow him to invest their money.

The 25-year-old’s victims were said to have been clients at a legitimate investment company, S&S Trading Ltd, where Kimmence previously worked.

A previous hearing was told Sammy took the clients on when the business stopped operating, falsely claiming he was authorised to provide financial services.

Now Kimmence, who had denied all the charges and pleaded not guilty only last week, faces a possible prison sentence after a last-minute change of plea.

Kimmence, appearing at Portsmouth Crown Court, Hampshire, as his trial was expected to start, pleaded guilty to five counts of fraud, totalling £33,919. 

The judge warned him his offences were so serious they crossed the custody threshold and he could be sent to jail.

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

The court heard Kimmence, who announced the birth of his and Dani’s son Santiago in January, 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 Peter Martin to transfer him £22,912 on one occasion, and £400 on another. He conned Peter Haynes in a similar way to the tune of £7,927.

Martin sadly died in November last year aged 91 while Haynes suffers from Alzheimer’s.

Defending, Craig Harris asked for a pre-sentence report to be made and said: ‘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.’

He added: ‘Quite a lot has gone into this young man’s life in the last few years. He is seeking to reimburse the losses he has caused so some time is also needed to allow him to do that.’

The court previously heard how Mr Haynes was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s last year and has moved from Okehampton, Devon, to live closer to his daughter in Leeds.

Father of her baby: A source close to the star added: 'She's vowed to stand by him, he's the father of her baby.'

Adjourning the hearing for sentencing, Recorder Nicholas Haggan, QC, said: ‘The offences to which you have pleaded guilty are serious offences, it’s accepted they cross the custodial threshold and you are at risk of receiving a custodial sentence.

‘Given you are young man of no previous convictions, I am going to order a sentencing report. I am going to grant you conditional bail.’

He ordered a pre-sentence report and added: ‘I am going to grant conditional bail until the hearing of your case which is on 11 June.

‘The fact I am granting bail affords no indication of what the sentence will be. You are at risk of a custodial sentence.’ 

Dani, who is the daughter of EastEnders star Danny Dyer, shot to fame on Love Island in 2018. She had previously been in a relationship with Kimmence but struck up a new partnership with Jack Fincham in the villa before going on to win the show.

But the 24-year-old rekindled her romance with Kimmence shortly afterwards and there have been rumours that the pair may be getting married in the near future.
