UK Leadership Debate Taken Off-Air After Fully Vaccinated Host Collapses Live on TV

Fact checked

A double vaccinated and boosted British TV presenter collapsed live on air as she hosted a debate between two politicians vying to become the UK’s next prime minister.

Presenter Kate McCann, of British network TalkTV, was hosting the live political debate when she crashed to the floor in dramatic scenes, leaving Conservative politician Liz Truss, who was speaking at the time, in shock.

Watch the dramatic moment in the video below.

Former chancellor Rishi Sunak and Foreign Secretary Liz Truss were in the middle of their second debate when the “medical incident” occurred.

Truss was in the middle of an answer about Ukraine, when a crashing sound could be heard. Stunned, the Tory MP could only respond, “Oh my God”.

Liz Truss then walked over to the place where McCann had collapsed.

The British leadership debate was immediately taken off-air, with a message appearing on the screen saying: “We are sorry for the disruption to this program. We are working hard to fix the issue and will return to normal programming soon.”

Shortly after the incident, TalkTV confirmed the debate would not continue, issuing the following statement:

Kate McCann fainted on air tonight and although she is fine, the medical advice was that we shouldn’t continue with the debate,” the organisation tweeted. “We apologise to our viewers and listeners.

Kate McCann is a vaccine ultra, regularly tweeting her support for the vaccination program and encouraging her followers to get vaccinated.
