BBC radio host Paula White was apparently drunk during her final show on May 10 when she was pulled off the air (audio below), notes RadioToday.co.uk.
â€śFor the last time on lunchtime letâ€™s ssssssssssay yooou pick the music, oh yeah,â€ť White said during her show. "It's a P-A-R-T-Y because I said sooooo... Some people will say, 'Oh, thank goodness she's gone.'"
One text from a listener to the radio show read â€śPaula you sound drunk,â€ť to which White stated: â€śIâ€™m not drunk, Iâ€™ve had a couple of drinks Iâ€™m not drunk... Iâ€™m sad."
â€śItâ€™s my last day and nothingâ€™s working!â€ť she complained. â€śWhy is nothing working?â€ť
According to News.com.au, after about 30 minutes into her show, White was replaced by Dan Siegertsz who announced: â€śPaula is not feeling well with it being her last afternoon show and has gone home."
â€śPaula White was unable to continue on-air yesterday as she was under par,â€ť a BBC spokesperson told RadioToday.co.uk. â€śFortunately Denholm Siergertz was on hand to take over the show and listeners were able to enjoy the usual lively mix of chat and local news.â€ť
