"There will be a lot of people sitting at home, conspiracy theorists screaming at the screen and saying, 'We know who did that and we know what it's all about,' said the moderator.

"In this controversial entertainment documentary, one might fear that Kate and Gerry will in a way be drawn in again."

Mitchell argued, "This fuels these conspiracy theorists, there are whole websites and forums that aim to insult them and others around them, including myself.

"It's nonsense, when the refuted and forbidden allegations are aired again, I'm scared that it will fire it up, and Kate and Gerry are ignoring all this."

He went on to tell what the family experienced with Madeleine, who was 3 years old when she was missing 12 years ago.

"They always believed that in the absence of definitive evidence that the worst happened, they could still be alive, and that continues to this day," he explained.

"There is no evidence that she has suffered any physical harm and until someone puts her down absolutely and says that they have the worst news for her, and the evidence, then they have to go on."

This morning will be broadcast on ITV at 10.30 on weekdays.
