££££££'s for Kate on Mother's Day

By Tracey Kandohla:

Brave Kate McCann faces new heartache this morning as she wakes up to her second Mother's Day without daughter Madeleine.

But GP Kate is also set to get a boost - thanks to her three-year-old twins Sean and Amelie. They are expected to hand her daffodils at their local Roman Catholic church during a service for missing children.

Maddie (below) was just three when she vanished from a Portuguese holiday flat 22 months ago. But Kate, 40, and hubby Gerry refuse to give up hope she is still alive.

A fellow worshipper in Rothley, Leics, said: "It's going to be a tough day for Kate but hopefully the twins will help." Kate and Gerry, 40, have drawn strength from the church in their torment.

Spokesman Clarence Mitchell said: "Their faith's been of great help."

Heart specialist Gerry returned to Portugal in January for the first time in 16 months in a bid to improve strained relations with local cops looking for Maddie.
