Love Island star Dani Dyer’s boyfriend Sammy Kimmence is facing jail after pleading guilty to defrauding pensioners out of £34,000.
The 25-year-old entered guilty pleas to five charges of fraud at Portsmouth Crown Court. He has been granted conditional bail, and was told by a judge that he could be sent to prison when he is sentenced on June 11.
The court heard Kimmence, who welcomed son Santiago with his girlfriend in January, took money from two men aged 90 and 80 between 2016 and 2018. He had claimed he would invest the money through his company S&S Trading Ltd but did not do so.
Four counts were for fraud against Peter Martin totaling nearly £26,000 and a fifth count totaling £7,927 against Peter Haynes. Martin has since died.
Kimmence’s defence Craig Harris told the court his client is ‘seeking to reimburse the losses he has caused’.
Harris 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.
‘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.’

The judge, Recorder Nicholas Haggan QC, warned: ‘The fact I am granting you bail affords no indication as to what the sentence will be – you are at risk of a custodial sentence.’
Dani and Sammy have been dating for nearly two years after rekindling their romance in May 2019.
The pair were together before she entered the Love Island villa in 2018 but patched things up after she and ex boyfriend Jack Fincham split.
