Adele: Weekend Sunrise’s Matt Doran addresses his car-crash interview with Adele

A devastated Matt Doran finally breaks his silence on his car-crash interview with Adele and issues a grovelling apology to the singer – after claims she ‘walked out’ when she discovered he hadn’t listened to her new album


Matt Doran returned to Weekend Sunrise on Saturday and finally addressed his controversial interview with Adele. 

Earlier this month, he had flown to London to interview the chart-topping singer, 33, for the Seven Network – but shockingly admitted during the chat he hadn’t actually listened to her new album, 30. 

An ‘offended’ Adele was then said to have walked out of the interview, which some sources have since denied, which the network allegedly spent $1million on.

Matt, 37, appearing completely devastated, issued a grovelling apology to Adele on Weekend Sunrise and blamed the saga on a ‘missed email’, before admitting the interview was meant to be ‘one of the highlights’ of his career.  

Speaking out: On Weekend Sunrise on Saturday, a devastated Matt Doran finally broke his silence on his car-crash interview with Adele and issued a groveling apology to the singer – after claims she ‘walked out’ when she discovered he hadn’t listened to her new album 

‘This is a story that has sparked from around the world, a torrent of abuse and mockery from around the world, and if I’m being honest with you, the bulk of this savaging I deserve and I totally own,’ he began. 

‘I flew to London to interview Adele, an unspeakable privilege and what was to be one of the highlights of my career. 

‘I made the terrible mistake of assuming we weren’t to be given a preview a copy of this album, because our interview was airing before it was released and Adele’s album was the industry’s most-prized secret.’
