The Dewsbury mum will feature in the latest programme, which explores Karen Matthews’ possible motives for kidnapping her own daughter, Shannon, and features former friend, Julie Bushby.

The programme attempts to discover if Karen was vulnerable and exploited or cruel and calculating.

The mum-of-seven has always denied having anything to do with her daughter’s disappearance.

Shannon Matthews: The Mother’s Story, will be shown tonight at 10pm on Channel 5.
