A live television debate between two Tory hopefuls competing to be Prime Minister went off air Tuesday when the TV presenter fainted and collapsed during the broadcast.
UK Foreign Secretary Liz Truss was discussing the Ukraine conflict when a loud bang was heard, prompting a visibly horrified Truss to mutter “oh my god” before the live debate was taken off air.
Debate moderator and host Kate McCann had reportedly collapsed during the broadcast, with the TalkTV network claiming that her fainting spell was due to a “medical issue” and not a “security issue.”
“Kate McCann fainted on air tonight and although she is fine, the medical advice was that we shouldn’t continue with the debate,” the network said in a statement. “We apologize to our viewers and listeners.”

This marks yet another fainting spell caught on camera over the last couple of years, leading many to believe the cause may be related to the rollout of the experimental COVID-19 vaccine.
