Sunday Brunch guest Joss Stone mocked by viewers as interview falls apart

Technical problems ruined her appearance on Channel 4 show

Sunday Brunch guest Joss Stone came in for a teasing from viewers after her appearance on the show fouled up.

The singer called in from the Bahamas to chat with Sunday Brunch presenters Tim Lovejoy and Simon Rimmer.

But her interview was beset with technical problems which caused her screen to freeze.

The audio of her speaking also seemed to fade in and out, leaving some of those watching at home amused.

Tim and Simon seemed baffled by the issues and indicated more than once that it seemed like they had lost her.

But many viewers were tickled by the botch and commented about the awkward moment on Twitter.

Is Joss Stone using AOL?

Replying to a tweet previewing her appearance, one laughing social media later joked: “Didn’t quite work.”

Several others jokily wondered whether Joss should look into upgrading her internet.

“Have you considered changing your dial-up modem for a broadband connection?” remarked someone, adding a crying laughing emoji to their post.

Another laughed: “I think @JossStone needs to get a new provider for her internet @SundayBrunchC4.”

“Is Joss Stone using AOL? #SundayBrunch,” questioned a third person.

‘Irritating’

Other observers were not quite as gentle with their mockery.

“Joss Stone is even more irritating than normal when her video call keeps freezing,” blasted one viewer.

“Who’d have thought that was possible? #SundayBrunch.”

And another person remarked sarcastically: “Best interview ever… Joss Stone #SundayBrunch.”

However, not all of those commenting on social media were negative.

One viewer gave Joss the thumbs up and hoped there would be a chance to have her on again.

They wrote: “From my hospital bed – Joss Stone was lovely and great.

“Please have her on Sunday Brunch again when her link isn’t freezing.”

In what must have been especially annoying for Joss, she had got up really early to do the interview.

The Bahamas is five hours behind the UK so it wasn’t even 7am when she made her appearance.

Still, at least some viewers appreciated the trouble she had gone to.

One fan on Twitter complimented Joss: “How do you manage to look so stunning at that time of the day?”

ED! has approached a representative for Sunday Brunch for comment.

Sunday Brunch airs on Sundays at 9.30am on Channel 4
