She’s never been one for mincing her words, but Sharon Osbourne has been blasted by Kate and Gerry McCann after calling them ‘insane’ for leaving their three children alone in a holiday apartment.
Speaking on US show The Talk on a debate about leaving kids home alone, Sharon said: “I will tell you a very quick story. There was a husband and wife on holiday in Portugal.
“They left their baby in the room sleeping, sleeping while they went to dinner in the restaurant.
“While they were in the resort their baby was taken. And it is like, ‘Oh but we can see everything that is going on’ and it is, like, insane.”
A family friend revealed Kate and Gerry are furious about the comments. The source told The Mirror: “It’s very disappointing when someone with such a high profile makes this sort of ignorant, ill-informed comment.
“She should think about the effect it could have on Madeleine’s brother and sister, as well as the wider family.
“Kate and Gerry have never forgiven themselves and this should not have been aired in a random way, as it apparently was.
“It’s based on ignorance of the true facts. While she’s entitled to her view she should keep it to herself.”
Kate and Gerry’s daughter Madeleine was snatched from her bed in the family’s holiday apartment in May 2007, days before her fourth birthday. She has never been found.
