BBC radio host Paula White hauled off air for being 'drunk' during last show
Paula White's last stint as BBC Radio Stoke's afternoon presenter on Friday afternoon ended earlier than expected after she slurred and stumbled her way through the first 30 minutes of her live show.
"For the last time on lunchtime let's ssssssssssay you pick the music", the popular presenter drawled.
"It's a P-A-R-T-Y because I said sooooo... Some people will say, 'Oh, thank goodness she's gone.'"
Ms White confessed that she'd had "a couple of drinks" but denied being intoxicated.
"I'm not drunk, I've had a couple of drinks, I'm not drunk… I'm sad", the DJ giggled after a listener sent a text to producers suggesting that she was drunk.
A colleague soon took over and announced: "Paula is not feeling well with it being her last afternoon show and has gone home."
