Paula White pulled off last BBC show early

Audio from Paula White presenting her last show on BBC Radio Stoke after “a couple of drinks” has been circulating online after it appeared on Radiofail.

She started her last show at 1pm Friday afternoon but 30 minutes later she was replaced after listeners presumed she was drunk. One text from a listener said “Paula you sound drunk” to which Paula replied “I’m not drunk, I’ve had a couple of drinks I’m not drunk” followed by a long laugh.

Because it was her last show Paula said she’s not playing the songs she’s suppose to play but will take requests because she’s having a party.

Computer equipment failed to work which led to moments of silence and filling.

After 30 minutes fellow presenter Dan Siegertsz appeared after a song saying Paula was not quite feeling well so took the rest of the afternoon off.

A BBC Spokesperson told RadioToday.co.uk: “Paula White was unable to continue on-air yesterday as she was under par. Fortunately 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.

We can confirm that this was Paula’s last show in the afternoon weekday slot on BBC Radio Stoke.“
