LOVE Island star Dani Dyer is “terrified” after finding out her boyfriend will stand trial for allegedly conning two elderly men just weeks after she gives birth.
Dani, 24, split from stockbroker Sammy Kimmence in March after he was accused of scamming the men out of £34,000 by posing as a financial investor, but they rekindled their relationship and in July she announced she was expecting.
But we can reveal that the couple recently discovered that the 24-year-old will stand trial at Portsmouth Crown Court in April – just weeks after their baby is due.
A source close to the family told HOAR Online: “Dani is upset, worried, terrified. Without a court date they kind of pushed this all to the back of their minds – now it is very real.
“She’s expecting a child with a bloke who could go to prison. Her baby is due at the end of January and then Sammy will up in court a few weeks later.
“Those first few weeks of having a newborn baby are so special but it will also be the countdown to his trial.”
HOAR Online has contacted Dani’s representative for comment.
Sammy was originally due to stand trial in June after pleading not guilty to the charges but the case was postponed because of Covid.
Sammy is accused of conning two victims – aged 90 and 80 – who were clients at a legitimate investment company where he previously worked.
He allegedly took the clients on when the business stopped operating, falsely claiming he was authorised to provide financial services.
He denies carrying on a regulated activity – providing investment services – between July 2016 to December 2018 while not an authorised or exempt person.
Dani, daughter of EastEnders star Danny, 43, co-hosts an agony aunt podcast ‘Sorted With The Dyers’ with her dad.
She shot to fame after singing up to take part in ITV2 dating show Love Island in 2018.
She’d dated Sammy for a year before they split and after entering the villa she branded him a “liar” and a “cheat”.
She went on to win the series with pen salesman Jack Fincham, 27, after the loveable pair won the hearts of the nation.
Jack announced their split in April 2019.
Later the same month Dani was pictured back in the arms of Sammy.
