Channel Seven’s Matt Doran threw down his script and stormed off the Weekend Sunrise set during Sunday’s episode.

Doran, 38, and co-host Sally Bowrey attempted to interview Astrophysical & Planetary Sciences’ Dr Kevin France on NASA‘s rocket launch, but suffered a technical difficulty when they failed to hear him speak for a second time.

It comes after Doran bungled an exclusive interview with Adele late last year.

Doran and Bowrey were interviewing France on NASA’s new mission that will take place from the Northern Territory from June 26 to July 12.

A glitch occurred when the co-hosts failed to hear France answer their question. 

‘Please tell me that we can send a rocket 300km into earth’s orbit, but we can’t get comms with Kevin,’ Doran joked.

He then apologised for ‘rambling for a few minutes’ in the hopes that producers could fix the on-air blunder.

‘I am going to continue rambling for a few minutes in the hopes we can establish comms. I apologise to Kevin, I apologise to our audience,’ he said.

Doran and Bowrey were able to establish a connection with France only for them to lose him again.

In a playful fashion, Doran threw down his script and walked off the set, but returned shortly after. 

Doran resumed on-air duties at Channel Seven in early March after taking an extended hiatus to focus on his mental health.

The seasoned reporter had taken time off work in late January to recuperate after facing intense trolling over his infamous botched interview with Adele in late 2021.

He reportedly spent time in a mental health facility, with a source telling The Sunday Telegraph in February he was ‘battling severe and chronic depression’. 

Doran made headlines around the world in November when it emerged he’d flown to London to interview Adele, 34, but had failed to listen to her new album beforehand – which angered her label so much they refused to release the footage. 

He was later forced to apologise to the singer after admitting he hadn’t listened to her album, 30, ahead of his interview with her.

Seven had obtained an exclusive interview with the star as part of its $1million package that also included broadcast rights to Adele’s One Night Only concert and her sit-down with Oprah Winfrey.

Doran was flown to London for the interview at the beginning of November, where he told Adele he’d only heard one song from her latest release. 

An ‘offended’ Adele then supposedly ‘stormed out’ of the interview, according to The Daily Telegraph.

However, Seven and Doran later disputed this, saying the singer was not angry and the interview actually ran for longer than scheduled. 

Regardless, her label Sony was not impressed and responded by banning the network from airing any part of the interview during its One Night Only package. 

‘Furious’ Seven executives also reportedly ‘suspended’ Doran for two weeks. 

Both Seven and Doran denied this, saying there was no formal suspension and he simply took a week off work.

In a lengthy on-air apology on Weekend Sunrise in November, Doran expressed his regret following the incident.

‘This is a story that has sparked 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.

Doran said he’d made a ‘terrible mistake’ assuming Channel Seven hadn’t been given a preview copy of the album.

‘The day after we landed in London an email came through from Sony, it didn’t mention Adele but it did contain a link to her album,’ he continued.

‘The genuine, dead-set, hand on heart truth is that I missed it. By an absurdly long margin the most important email I’ve ever missed in my life.’
