When is the Madeleine McCann Netflix documentary released?
The documentary is due to be screened in April 2019, but an exact date is yet to be revealed.
It will examine the case of the missing three-year-old and interviews key figures and investigators.
Netflix had been hoping it would be ready to screen in 2018 but the project reportedly took longer than expected.
It’s also thought producers had wanted to create an eight-part series but it may now be a one or two parter.

Why did Madeleine’s parents refuse to be involved?
Maddie’s parents Kate and Gerry refused to take part, despite numerous requests from producers over the last 18 months.
The couple’s pals, who were on that fateful holiday with them when Maddie went missing, and their former spokesperson Clarence Mitchell blasted the film, which is reported to have cost £20million, saying: “We want nothing to do with it.”
In 2018 The Sun reported that the McCanns have declined to be involved because the Metropolitan Police’s investigation is still active.
