Presenter faints during TV debate in UK
Shock moment on British television: During a TV duel about the successor to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the presenter faints. The transfer was aborted. After a while the broadcaster cleared everything.
IHalf an hour after it began, a televised duel for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s successor ended due to a medical emergency. Former Finance Minister Rishi Sunak and Foreign Minister Liz Truss were arguing on talk TV when a hoarse voice was heard. The camera was currently on the truss, winning and saying “oh my god” before cutting the feed.
Talk TV later announced that presenter Kate McCann fainted during the show. She is fine but the doctor advised her not to continue with the argument. According to TalkTV, both the candidates are doing well. The two remained in the studio and would talk to the readers of “Surya” invited to the debate.
The discussion was hosted by the newspapers The Sun and Talk TV, both owned by media entrepreneur Rupert Murdoch. Talk TV’s political editor McCann was supposed to co-host with The Sun’s Harry Cole, but tested positive for the coronavirus on Tuesday and pulled out.
Truss expressed regret at the end of the duel and tweeted that he was relieved to hear McCann was recovering. Sunak thanked him for the “great debate” and wrote on Twitter that it was good to hear that McCann was recovering. He is waiting to be “grilled” again by him soon.
Sunk and Truss faltered until the debate over tax burdens, support for families struggling with rising living costs, and funding for the National Health Service. The two met in the first TV debate on the BBC on Monday evening.
