The controversial documentary of Netflix on the disappearance of Madeleine McCann was launched today (March 15), with eight episodes that have landed on the streaming platform.
Kate and Gerry McCann's spokesperson, Clarence Mitchell, has now appeared This morning to reveal how Madeleine's parents feel about the new series.
Eamonn Holmes said the show – directed by Chris Smith, who was behind the recent Fyre documentary – runs the risk of "feeding the frenzy".
"There will be many people sitting at home, conspiracy theorists screaming on the screen saying:" We know who did this and we know what's involved, "said the presenter.
"From this controversial entertainment documentary, there may be concern that Kate and Gerry will be dragged this way again in some way."
Mitchell argued: "This feeds those conspiracy theorists, there are entire websites and forums dedicated to denigrate them and others around them, including myself.
"It is an absurdity, if the accusations that have been denied and discounted have been transmitted again, I fear that it will feed them." Kate and Gerry ignore this. "
He went on to talk about what the family believes happened to Madeleine, who was 3 years old when she disappeared 12 years ago.
"They have always believed that in the absence of definitive evidence to suggest that the worst has happened, that it could still be alive and this is what keeps them going today," he explained.
"There is no evidence that she has come into any physical harm and until someone puts her down and says they have the worst possible news for them, and the evidence, then they have to go on."
This morning airs on weekdays at 10.30 on ITV.
