In live television world, the show must go on. So when a QVC host fainted live on air, her co-host continued talking without skipping a beat.

On the "Sundays with Carolyn and Dan" show, host Dan Hughes and co-host Cassie Slane were selling a tablet devices for kids, when in the middle of the segment Slane suddenly looked ill and fell over, appearing to faint.

Although the camera cut away, Hughes, who asked if Slane was okay, continued to sell the product.

Later Slane took to her Facebook page to address the fainting episode. "Thanks to everyone for your kind words. I am feeling alot better today!" she wrote.

Fellow QVC host Carolyn Gracie responded to a fan on her Facebook page, saying, " She had a couple of fainting spells due to low blood sugar. Poor thing. She is such a nice girl."

Hughes has received some criticism for continuing the segment even after Slane fainted.
