Dani Dyer has been left terrified after learning that her ex Sammy Kimmence had asked a friend to spy on her while behind bars for defrauding retirees of £34,000.
The former Love Island star, 25, was spied on by the convict’s boyfriend he asked to watch her, The Sun reports.
Sammy is said to have been enraged by Dani’s close friendship with West Ham player Jarrod Bowen and asked his friend to keep an eye on the pair.
Fears: Dani Dyer is reportedly terrified after learning her ex Sammy Kimmence asked a friend to spy on her while behind bars for defrauding retirees of £34,000
Dani said of the ordeal: “After all the horrible things he did came to court and we broke up, I thought I could move on with my life with little Santi.
“But this is just really awful and scary. I feel furious, scared and violated.’
In phone calls from prison, Sammy revealed that he had asked his friend to “keep an eye out” for Dani and was “not happy” with her actions.
There is no question of Dani and Jarrod having a romantic relationship.
Sammy is serving a prison sentence for defrauding pensioners Peter Martin, 91, and Peter Haynes, 81, of £34,000 by befriending and deceiving them.

Dani decided not to go to the courthouse to see the conviction of her baby’s father, where he was jailed and sentenced to 42 months in Portsmouth Crown Court.
Not only did he cheat on the two retirees, he convinced Dani that the crimes weren’t serious so the reality star would stand by him.
But the reality star stopped sharing anything from their relationship when the truth about his crimes came to light, and broke up with him immediately when she found out.

Since making the decision to start parenting alone with Santiago, Dani has been surrounded by her family for support, and her actor father, Danny, accompanied her on vacation to celebrate her birthday.
Meanwhile, Sammy has to pay Mr Martin £3,926 – which is going to his estate because he has passed away – and Mr Hayne £1,173 within the next three months.
The rest will be paid as soon as he earns money once he is released from prison.

Sammy will be absent from both Dani and baby Santiago’s lives as he serves time for his deception.
And Dani’s father Danny would be relieved that his daughter has separated from the scammer.
The EastEnders actor and the rest of Dani’s family have said they “think it’s best” and told her “she will never be alone as a single mother,” according to Ok!.
A source told the publication: ‘Dani’s father Danny and her entire family are relieved that she has run away.
“They think this is the best. They have told her that as a single mother she will never be alone because they will always help her raise Santiago.”
The source added: “Dani knew Sammy’s crime was bad, but everyone thinks she just stuck her head in the sand and didn’t face the enormity of his crimes until he was convicted.”

Meanwhile, a source revealed to the MailOnline that the heartbroken reality star is working on living as a single parent.
They said, ‘She’s absolutely knocked out by what happened to Sammy. She knows she has to make huge changes in her life and she is so distraught…
“All she knows is that her son Santiago is all that matters right now and she’s trying to figure out how best to take care of him as a single parent.”
The source continued: ‘She needs time to think about it. Sammy completely downplayed the lawsuit every step of the way.”
It has been revealed that she was misled about the seriousness of the crimes that saw Sammy tend to retirees to fund his lavish lifestyle.

‘She’s broken. She feels very sorry for the two men he defrauded and whose lives he destroyed.’
Speaking about how she’s feeling now, they said, “She feels completely stupid that she ever believed him and she’s totally overwhelmed…”
“The little dream family she thought she had has fallen apart and she’s now trying to figure out the best way to pick up the pieces.”
