DISTRAUGHT Dani Dyer has dumped her jailbird boyfriend after he hoodwinked her over his crimes.
Sammy Kimmence got 3½ years for conning OAPs out of £34,000.
But the lowlife convinced former Love Island winner Dani that his crimes were “not that serious” and he was only facing a suspended sentence.
After learning the truth, she ended their relationship and is focusing on life as a single parent to son Santiago, born in January.
A source said: “Sammy led Dani to believe he hadn’t done anything too serious and that he would get a suspended sentence.
“Now she knows the full horror of what he did.
“She is broken, she feels desperately sorry for the two men he scammed and whose lives he ruined.
“Dani feels utterly stupid for ever believing Sammy and is totally overwhelmed.”
The 24-year-old, daughter of EastEnders actor and telly host Danny, 43, below, seemed to be stressed yesterday as she returned Kimmence’s BMW motor to an Essex dealership.
Kimmence, 25, posed as a financial whiz to dupe 91-year-old Peter Martin and Peter Haynes, 81.

He persuaded them to let him “invest” their savings for them. But he splashed out on clothes, restaurants, nightclubs and Ibiza hotels.
Kimmence, of Rayleigh, Essex, initially denied the charges but pleaded guilty to five frauds and was jailed at Portsmouth crown court on Wednesday.
The source said: “Dani knows she has to make some massive changes in her life but is so distraught that she needs time to think things through.
“The dream family she thought she had has been smashed and she is now trying to work out how best to pick up the pieces.
“Her baby boy Santi is the only thing that matters now. And she is working out how best to look after him as a single parent.”
