Shameless ex Portuguese police chief Goncalo Amaral has cashed in on the 10th anniversary of Maddie McCann’s disappearance with a controversial TV interview.
The ex cop is thought to have been paid £10,000 for the prime time broadcast, which will show sensitive previously unseen crime scene pictures.

Amaral, 57, who whined last week that the investigation cost him his marriage and his son, used the interview to again point suspicion at devastated Kate and Gerry McCann.
The programme called “Maddie, the Enigma”, airs tomorrow on prime time rolling news channel CMTV and he is expected to repeat his wild theory Kate and Gerry were involved.
The unseen pictures taken from the apartment were also published in a preview article by Portuguese Sabado magazine.
The news is likely to bring fresh anguish for parents Jerry and Kate McCann
Ex police chief has shopped new crime scene pics of apartments at the Ocean Club in Luz in the Algarve, Portugal, where Madeleine McCann went missing
They show the bedrooms in apartment 5a of the Ocean Club in Praia da Luz where Maddie disappeared from on May 3 2007.
In one a tape measure is seen leaning against a wall showing the bedroom window where Maddie is thought to have been snatched from.
Another shows a travel cot in the lounge of the ground floor apartment where Maddie's twin siblings Sean and Amelie, now 12, slept.
Lisbon based TV station CMTV took Amaral back to Praia da Luz last week and he is seen walking the street outside the apartment and then heading down to the beach looking out to sea.
In his interview Amaral suggested the key to the murder was the church where Katie and Gerry prayed while the search for Maddie went on.
He said: "We had information that three figures were seen going into the church in December 2007.
"They had a box and there was to be a cremation later of a British citizen. It is possible the remains of the child were in this box and cremated as well."
This is the window through which Maddie is believed to have been snatched
His interview will provoke fresh anguish for grief stricken Kate and Gerry as he insists pressure was put on him from superiors to treat the case as a kidnap when he wanted to focus on them.
The couple, who live in Rothley, Leics., were made formal suspects in the case in September 2007 but the investigation was later dropped - much to Amaral's fury.
Amaral claims his officers found no trace of a forced entry and in another dig he insists when cops arrived at the scene Kate was screaming "We abandoned her".
"They had a box and there was to be a cremation later of a British citizen. It is possible the remains of the child were in this box and cremated as well."

He was eventually booted off the bungled investigation and in his interview even revealed how he had been held up for an hour the night Maddie disappeared due to roadworks.
Amaral insisted said: "The line to follow in this investigation should have been the parents."
He also dismissed Scotland Yard chief Mark Rowley's revelation last week that a significant lead was still being investigated describing it as "false".
And in a further attack on the McCann's he said: "They always have a powerful permanent PR machine ready to preserve their image."

HUNT FOR MADDIE WOMAN
Main suspect in hunt for missing Madeleine McCann ‘is a woman who British cops are set to grill about notorious case’
The woman was allegedly spotted close to the spot where the three-year-old went missing in Portugal in 2007

THE MAIN suspect in the hunt for missing Madeleine McCann is reportedly a woman who British cops are set to grill about the notorious case.
The woman was allegedly spotted close to the spot where the three-year-old went missing in the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz on May 3, 2007.
It comes as mum Kate McCann admitted she feels “guilty” about the £11million spent on the investigation in a revealing interview alongside husband Gerry ahead of the tenth anniversary of their daughter’s disappearance.
A source close to Scotland Yard told the Sunday Express detectives are due to question the woman, who doesn’t currently live in Portugal, about her whereabouts on the night of Madeleine’s disappearance.
The insider said: “Detectives have scoured Europe looking for this woman who is thought to hold the key to solving the entire case.
“After months of tireless police work they will soon be in a position to move in and finally get some answers after a decade of dead-ends.
“It is a hugely significant line of inquiry that officers hope could lead to an arrest.”
Kate and Gerry McCann have given a candid interview about their daughter’s disappearance as the tenth anniversary approaches
The Ocean Club in Luz in the Algarve, Portugal, where Madeleine McCann went missing, and where a woman who police want to speak to was allegedly spotted close to
Asked directly about the female suspect, Scotland Yard said it would not comment on specific aspects of the investigation.
The Home Office gave the Met Police an extra £85,000 in funding last month to help find the missing youngster, extending the Operation Grange to September this year.
Senior officers described the latest cash boost as the "last throw of the dice" as total funding reached £11.1million.
Speaking about the cost of the investigation, Kate told the BBC's Fiona Bruce: “You do feel guilty. Other families haven’t had the publicity and money.”
Gerry said any criticism about the money spent on the hunt was unfair because other cases involving missing British tourists had been solved in the long process.
Cops have so far looked at more than 600 individuals, who were identified as being potentially significant to the disappearance.
Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said: "In 2013 Operation Grange identified four individuals they declared to be suspects in the case.
"This led to interviews at a police station in Faro facilitated by the local Policia Judiciária and the search of a large area of wasteland which is close to the apartment where the family were staying in Praia Da Luz.
"The enquiries did not find any evidence to further implicate the individuals in the disappearance and so they are no longer subject of further investigation."
At the height of the hunt, 30 British detectives were working on the UK side of the investigation sifting through 40,000 documents.
Opening up about the investigation in the candid BBC interview, Kate told how the couple have had further hope because of several new “credible lines of enquiry”.
They have vowed to do “whatever it takes for as long as it takes” to find Madeleine.
And the couple, from Rothley, Leicestershire, said they took heart from the “real progress” made by the Metropolitan Police during the past five years.
Kate, who has described the impending anniversary of her daughter’s disappearance as a “horrible marker of time, stolen time”, said: “Since the Metropolitan Police actually started their investigation, it has taken a huge pressure off us, individually and as a family.”
They couple said they have tried to keep a “very normal, happy and fulfilling life” for twins Sean and Amelie, now 12, and have never blamed each other over Maddie.
Kate gave up her job but has since returned to work, not as a GP, but still in medicine.
She said: “That was a big step to re-establish as normal a life as possible. Life’s busy. I think in some ways — whether it’s our personality or a coping strategy — sometimes it’s almost a little bit too frenetic, but it keeps us going.
“I think we don’t dwell too much on things unnecessarily so I think that’s probably a self-protective thing. We do have a very full life and it’s as normal as we can make it.”
