A presenter faints during a TV debate in the United Kingdom
The moment of shock on British television: during a television duel over the successor to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the presenter fainted. Transfer aborted. After a short time, the announcer gave everything.
eHalf an hour after it began, a television duel to succeed British Prime Minister Boris Johnson ended due to a medical emergency. Former Finance Minister Rishi Sunak and Secretary of State Liz Truss were discussing on Talk TV when he heard a crackling noise. The camera was currently on Truss, who flinched and said, “Oh my God,” before the feed was cut short.
Talk TV later announced that announcer Kate McCann fainted during the show. She is fine but the doctor advised her not to continue the discussion. Both candidates are doing well, according to TalkTV. She added that both remained in the studio and would speak with the “Sun” readers invited to discuss.
The symposium was hosted by tabloids The Sun and Talk TV, both owned by media tycoon Rupert Murdoch. Talk TV’s political editor McCann was supposed to participate alongside The Sun’s Harry Cole, but he tested positive for coronavirus on Tuesday and pulled out.
Truss regretted the end of the duel and tweeted that she was relieved to hear that it wasn’t okay. Sunak thanked him for the “great discussion” and wrote on Twitter that it was good to hear McCann was recovering. He is looking forward to being “interrogated” again soon.
Sunak and Truss quarreled until the debate over the tax burden subsided, supporting families struggling with rising costs of living and funding the National Health Service. The two met for the BBC’s first televised debate on Monday evening.
