Kate and Gerry McCann have spoken to Mary Nightingale on the eve of the five-year anniversary of Madeleine's disappearance.
Kate has described how she coped in April last year when Madeleine had been away from them longer than they had had her:
It had been a day that had been etched in my mind. But we've gone beyond that now. In the early days and weeks I was counting the days, counting the weeks and thinking my goodness what will she be like, how will she be - we've gone beyond that now.
Here is a timeline of the key events since Madeleine McCann's disappearance.
I've been interviewing the McCanns about Madeleine for five years now and the first thing that strikes you is their togetherness.
The McCanns said they have "no doubt" the Portuguese police will eventually reopen the investigation into Madeleine's disappearance.
