The program The Sun's Showdown: The Fight for No.10 is moderated by journalist Kate McCann. Actually, the political editor of the Sun, Harry Cole, should modernize the show, but he was tested positively on Covid-19.

Truss and Sunak discuss taxes, the condition of the NHS (health authority) and the increasing cost of living, as reported by the BBC . After about half of the one -hour debate, Truss is starting to answer a question about the support of the United Kingdom for Ukraine, when a loud crash can be heard. Truss seems shocked, hands his hands in front of the face and calls "Oh my god". She approaches the point where McCann stood when the live broadcast is suddenly interrupted.

2 contenders battle for Conservative votes in UK leader race

  2 contenders battle for Conservative votes in UK leader race LONDON (AP) — The two candidates to become Britain’s next prime minister began a head-to-head battle on Thursday for the votes of Conservative Party members who will choose the country’s new leader. Former Treasury chief Rishi Sunak is promising fiscal prudence, while Foreign Secretary Liz Truss is offering immediate tax cuts to the right-of-center governing party, which is divided and demoralized after three turbulent years under departing Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Sunak and Truss were chosen Wednesday by Conservative lawmakers, from an initial field of 11, as finalists to replace Johnson, who quit as party leader on July 7 after months of ethics scandals.

The broadcaster takes up the transmission minutes later, but switches to another studio where the moderator Ian Collins says that there was a "medical problem", as Sky News reports. He says:

Allen is fine, that's the good news. Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss are still in the studio to chat with the readers: to chat inside and to answer the questions.

A spokeswoman for the Sun says according to Sky News:

There was a medical problem, we hope that we can go on the air again soon.

The debate will be not continued. The broadcaster TalktV says in an explanation, as The Independent reports:

Kate McCann passed on the air tonight, and although she was doing well, we were advised not to continue the debate. We apologize to our spectators: inside and listener: why did she pass?

The NHS psychologist and moderator Dr. Sian Williams tweets that the fainting attack could have been caused by the studio light or stress, but this has not yet been confirmed.
