Sammy Kimmence was jailed for three and a half years this week after pleading guilty to cheating two pensioners out of more than £33,000 and Dani's father, 'EastEnders' actor Danny, is happy that she has given him the boot.

A source told OK!: "Dani's dad Danny and her whole family are relieved she's walked away. They think this is for the best. They've told her she'll never be alone as a single mum as they'll always help her to raise Santiago."

Dani, 24, and Sammy, 25, welcomed son Santiago together earlier this year and it has been claimed that Sammy downplayed the scale of his crime to his partner.

Dani was said to be shocked when he was sentenced this week as she had thought he would not be jailed.

An insider previously said: “Sammy had downplayed the court case every step of the way and 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.”
