How did Dani Dyer and Sammy Kimmence meet?
Dani Dyer was actually with Sammy before she went into the Love Island villa in 2018 - and referred to him and their relationship quite a bit when she met pen salesman, Jack Fincham on the series.
During her time in the villa, Dani explained she found it hard to let her guard down, thanks to her "liar" ex (Sammy).
In Dani's autobiography, What Would Dani Do?, the Love Island 2018 winner described how Sammy "treated her like a side dish."
However, the couple have clearly put their past behind them and look more in love than ever.
How long have Dani and Sammy been together?
In April 2019 Dani was pictured smooching Sammy in the middle of Chelsea, London when the couple packed on the PDA and had their hands all over each other.
While Dani kept things under wraps since they were first spotted, she now frequently shares cute selfies of them together.
They briefly split at the start of 2020 when Sammy was accused of scamming two elderly men out of £34,000 by posing as a financial investor, but when lockdown began the couple got back together in quarantine.
