Matt also insisted that he’d dedicated hours preparing for the interview, contrary to reports.

‘I spent the next five hours at my desk preparing for the interview. And we got to the interview three hours early the next day,’ he told the paper.

He also denied rumours that his fiancée, executive producer of Today, Kendall Bora, had travelled to London with him.

Matt says Kendall had flown to Geneva to see her family there, then returned to London four days after the interview so they could fly home together.

Doran had flown to London to chat with the pop diva but admitted during the chat he hadn’t actually listened to her new album, reported The Sunday Telegraph. 

'I've had inquiries from Good Morning Britain, CNN, Dubai and Japan,' Matt said on Friday 'I spent the next five hours at my desk preparing for the interview. And we got to the interview three hours early the next day,' he added

He was then ‘suspended by Seven Network bosses’, the newspaper claimed – but Doran later clarified there was no formal suspension and he just took a week off. 

Doran sat down with the Hello hitmaker for a ’20-30 minute’ interview, during which he did not ‘ask a single question about the new album’.

An ‘offended’ Adele is then said to have walked out of the interview; however, other sources have disputed this.

Although the interview was recorded, Adele’s label Sony reportedly denied Seven the rights to air any portion of it.

The network allegedly spent $1million on the ill-fated interview, plus her sit-down with Oprah Winfrey and footage from her One Night Only concert. 

Seven still kept the rights to the latter two broadcasts, which aired on Sunday night.
