CHRISTIAN B was a twisted loner at school who was hated by all the other children, a former classmate has revealed.
The Madeleine McCann murder suspect spent his days annoying the other children and getting into a string of fights.

He also goaded teachers but then laughed in their face when they reacted, the former pupil revealed.
He told The Sun: “I have only ever had one fight in my life – and that was with Christian B.
“One day I exploded and told him I wished he would go back to the children’s home from where he had come from.
“We all knew he was adopted, so I shouldn’t have said that but I lost my temper with him.
“He jumped on me and we traded punches until a teacher pulled me apart.
“Everyone hated him in class and they all kept their distance.
“But it wasn’t just the children – it was the teachers as well.
The dad lost touch with B in his mid-teens – and was stunned when he heard his former classmate was linked to the Maddie case.
He added: “I always knew he would turn out bad but it is unbelievable to think he might be involved.
“I just hope the case is resolved to give closure to those poor parents.”

Paedophile B went on to commit his first sex attack on a six-year-old girl in a playground in 1993 — when he was 16.
He fled when the girl screamed in terror, but moments later he performed a sex act in front of another girl, aged nine.
Police have now named the jailed sex offender as the prime suspect in the 2007 abduction of Madeleine McCann from Praia da Luz on Portugal's Algarve.
