    A woman who bizarrely claims she "could be Madeleine McCann" has gone viral after sharing "evidence" in an Instagram Live – including a tell-tale "speck" in her eye.

    Madeleine disappeared from her holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in Portugal’s Algarve in 2007, when she was four years old.

    She has never been found but, in recent years, TikTok users have gone viral for their uncanny resemblance to the youngster.

    And another woman has hopped on the bandwagon with her latest unsubstantiated claims.

    The woman, who posts on her Instagram account @iammadeleinemcann, explained that she started to think she could be the missing youngster "a few months ago".

    "It was something that I heard from my grandma," she added.

    The young woman, from Germany, says she is 21 but crucially believes her age could be wrong. Madeleine would be 19 now.

    She also claims she has a freckle on her legs and a speck in her eye in the same places as Madeleine.

    The woman has become so convinced that she is Madeleine, that she says she wants to get a DNA test to prove her claims.

    Her Instagram bio said: “Help me, I need to talk with Kate and Gerry McCann I think I can be Madeleine. I need DNA test."

    The unnamed woman's evidence is weak at best, but has still gained a legion of more than 25,000 followers on Instagram with her updates.

    Back in 2021, a TikToker, who is also called Maddie by coincidence, also hit headlines when she shared footage of herself after being told by friends and family about her uncanny appearance.

    In the video the influencer posted, she showed a picture of the little Madeleine she found online before sharing her passport photo taken roughly around the same age as the missing girl.

    She appeared to have similar hairstyle with bangs covering the forehead, green eyes and an oval face.
