Kate McCann back on air after fainting during Tory leadership debate
The TalkTV political editor said ‘that wasn’t how last night was supposed to end’ after collapsing while hosting the Liz Truss v Rishi Sunak showdown.

TV journalist Kate McCann has said she is a “little bit bruised” but “totally fine” after fainting while hosting a debate between Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak.

The showdown between the two Tory leadership contenders was brought to a dramatic halt when she fainted off-camera while Ms Truss was speaking.

The Foreign Secretary’s horrified look and a loud crash were the signal that something had gone wrong during Tuesday’s debate.

Back on air on Wednesday evening, Ms McCann said she was feeling “a little embarrassed, a little bit bruised, but glad to be back and totally fine”.

She added: “Not necessarily what any of us expected to happen last night, I don’t think, and yeah, it was one of those moments that I think no one can really prepare for.

“I think Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak were pretty shocked by it.”

Earlier, she tweeted: “Well that wasn’t how last night was supposed to end.

“Thanks everyone for the lovely messages, I’m fine now, and apologies to @trussliz and @RishiSunak for cutting the debate short.”

The TalkTV journalist was moderating Tuesday’s debate on her own after her scheduled co-host, Sun political editor Harry Cole, tested positive for Covid-19.
