MADDIE BIDDING WAR
Madeleine McCann’s family at centre of TV chat show rights scrap on 10th anniversary of tot’s disappearance
A friend claims Kate and Gerry McCann have been offered huge bids for an exclusive interview

By TRACEY KANDOHLA

3rd February 2017, 4:55 pm

KATE McCann has been thrust into a global bidding war as TV chat shows and news giants battle to try and sign her up for talks on the 10th anniversary of daughter Madeleine’s disappearance.
The anguished mum, who has no idea if Maddie is dead or alive after nearly a decade, has been offered huge bids for an exclusive interview, a friend said today.
But Kate, still reeling from her shock libel defeat against a former Portuguese cop this week while trying to enjoy her younger twins’ 12th birthdays, has not yet considered any deal.
The ex GP and heart doctor husband Gerry now face sizeable court costs after losing their civil action on appeal and previously-won but not paid £360,000 damages which they had been ring-fencing for the ongoing search for Maddie.

The brave parents are bracing themselves for the heart wrenching 10th anniversary of Maddie’s kidnap in just 12 weeks.
Breakfast telly queen Lorraine Kelly and a pal of Kate’s could be a firm favourite although ITV would probably only pay a fraction of a fee being offered by brash American broadcasters.

One has told Kate and husband Gerry: “Name your price!”
A close friend of the McCann’s said: “They have been bombarded with offers from media around the world.
“They’re already got 30 sitting on the table and are getting new bids every other day particularly from the big American networks.
Kate did her last TV sofa chat with Scottish presenter Lorraine, a former Sun columnist, nearly three years ago.
Her pal said: “Kate likes Lorraine’s softly, softly approach and feels comfortable with her.
“She never asks too many searching questions.”

Maddie’s mum’s last print interview was with The Sun a year ago as the newspaper helped promote a new child rescue alert campaign on behalf of her charity Missing People.
It is believed the McCanns from Rothley, Leics, are being offered many thousands of pounds to relive their torment in a milestone 10th anniversary chat.
After three-year-old Maddie vanished during a family holiday to Portugal in May 2007 Kate and Gerry were in a £1million bidding war by two of America’s biggest chat show stars at the time – Oprah Winfrey and Barbara Walters.

The McCanns, for an undisclosed fee, finally chose Oprah and in May 2009 told in a heart breaking interview how they felt their snatched daughter was still alive.
The family source said: “Kate and Gerry get weary from all the demands for interviews, especially in the run up to the anniversary.
"The tenth one is a significant one and there is tremendous interest, not just from Britain and America but Australasia and Europe and of course Portugal.
"Talk shows, news channels, glossy magazines, newspapers – everyone’s after them!”
The pal added: “America has always had a fascination with Madeleine. And they’ve had their own high profile stories of missing children with happy endings after after being found alive and well years later.”
Just last month Kate and Gerry were given fresh hope and “buoyed up” when a kidnapped girl Kamiyah Mobley was found alive in the US after an incredible 18-year search.

Maddie, if alive, would turn 14 in mid May just nine days after the anniversary.
The McCanns have been left “bitterly disappointed” after losing on Tuesday an eight-year libel battle against Goncalo Amaral, an ex detective they had tried to silence but who defeated them.
They now face big court costs which they will take from but will eat into the dwindling Find Maddie Fund.
It is made up of public donations and proceeds from Kate’s best-seller book.
The friend added: “Gerry said ‘It’s not good news. We’ve gone to the pinnacle of the Portuguese legal system and we’ve lost. We now have to pay a sizeable amount in costs.’ ”
The McCann’s spokesperson Clarence Mitchell said today: “No firm decision has been made about any 10th anniversary interview.”
He has previously said: “Kate and Gerry would only ever agree to a deal which would widen the search for their daughter.”

Disgusting.

Poor Madeleine.

Isn't this a pretty anti-McCann piece? I don't think having a monetary bidding war will go down too well when a missing kid is involved. That quote you posted Candyfloss is pretty blatant, too.

I hope we see some European arrest warrants being dished out before we see their ugly mugs on any sofa.

Awww, they get weary.

Was someone taking the pee when they wrote this article?

Of course, there is the option not to conduct any interviews and remember their daughter on the 10th anniversary in a quiet and dignified manner with family and close friends.

Any talk of the search, blah blah is now redundant, IMO

The Fund concerns me.

Well there's a huge change of reporting on the McCs! God, that's a big change IMO
I don't think it has much to do with the anniversary, more about losing to GA I'd say. Seems everyone wants to interview them now Shocked

Tried to silence, defeated them! Never thought I'd see that!

Poor Kate. It looks like one of her few friends, the tame journalist, might not be so friendly and tame after all.

Being so close, even if they didn't entirely trust her, Tracey will have picked up on a lot that could make life difficult for the McCanns.

With not knowing what's happening with OG, losing the case in Portugal and these less than helpful comments from their "friend", the world must feel like it's closing in for Kate & Gerry.

That's what I think. Journalists need to sell papers, whether it's bad news or good.

I find it strange that everything seems to be about Kate and at times no mention of Gerry. He was the one who was supposedly seen by the Smith family but nothing much is said about him, even his gobby sister/dossier holder and the rest of the entourage have had nothing to say in defence of Kate. Even her own mum hasn't come out to defend her - where's the mother love here.

I imagine the Healy side are highly embarrassed by the whole thing and have deliberately kept out of the public eye.
The Mcann side are also strangely quiet so perhaps Gerry has told them to shut up.

Gerry seems to have hidden himself away in his work, which only leaves unemployed Kate with plenty of time and a pressing need to justify her actions.
