BBC Stoke presenter ‘passed out on air’
BBC Radio Stoke presenter Paula White is making headlines again after reportedly passing out live on air.
Earlier this year, she received media attention after appearing to be drunk while presenting her final daytime show.
This time, it’s suggested she fainted while conducting an interview with an exotic pets expert on her new weekly Saturday programme.
The Sun and the Daily Mail report that Paula was attempting to say the word ‘exotic’ moments before a song was played. When it finished, there was silence. It’s claimed she was unconscious in the studio for several minutes before paramedics arrived, and another presenter stepped in to take over the show.
The show’s unavailable on iPlayer and Paula has disappeared from the Radio Stoke schedule. The BBC said: “Paula White is unwell at the moment so is unable to present her Saturday morning show on BBC Radio Stoke. Den Siegertsz will be taking over for the time being.”
